Carol BRESSANUTTI Italy has met the SP and FS scores at HELLMUT SEIBT MEMORIAL
Anne Linn Gjersem and Kaat van Daele got their minimum LP scores at the Challenge Cup (both already had SP minimums). van Daele was as close as it gets, with a 46.00 TES in the LP; good for her!
Patricia Glescic (SLO) qualified based on her 28.50 in the SP at Golden Spin 2011 (reached initial WC min), and her 46.40 in the LP at the 2012 World Junior Championships. The lowered minimum is 46.00, so she's confirmed for Worlds.
Waiting to see if Paul Parkinson (ITA) reached the FS minimum at Challenge Cup today for Worlds. ETA: He did it - 69.89 TES in his FS.
Paul Bonifacio Parkinson 69.89
He goes to Worlds.
Justus Strid (DEN) also qualified today. He had the SP score (32.10 at Golden Spin), and then reached the 60-point LP mark with the free skate here. That makes 36 men.
Valtter Virtanen from Finland also got the LP score (just) (60.19) at Challenge Cup over the weekend. However, I don't suppose he has the SP score? (I remember he had some scores like 31.5!) It's too bad, as I like his skating. It's sad that his elements (3Lz, 3loop-3toe and 2A) are not considered good enough for the World championships and he has no choice to qualify for the Olympics in Canada ....
Yeah, I think he had a 31.29 or something. So close
He can always qualify via the Nebelhorn Trophy (you never know what progress he could make over summer!), which always seems to go quite a ways down the result list before the full 30-person field is completed.
Virtanen had a 31.28 at NRW Trophy. In his other seven outings this season, he didn't break 30 in the SP
For the record, these were the singles skaters and teams that did not attain the 2013 Worlds minimum scores (re-posting from the Entries thread in Kiss and Cry):
