    USFS' Athlete Selection Procedures for 2022 Olympics

    Polina Edmunds deserved to go in 2014 because she was the present, not because of her future potential. Finishing a solid second at nationals counts. And as to not panning out, Edmunds went on to finish top 10 at the Olympics, had two top-8 finishes at Worlds and won Four Continents before...

    The ISU's concussion protocol or lack thereof

    Poll: Should the 'q' call for jumps be eliminated?

    #TeamTrainwreck 24: For the weirdos and the dreamers!

    :huh: Naumov? He never even medalled on the JGP. What about him is supposed to indicate that he could potentially be a top skater at Euros/4CC's/Worlds/Olympic level?

    NHK ladies SP Matsuike: Wuz robbed after (most) everyone else skated so poorly Kawabe: first part felt empty. Nice 3A. Seized the opportunity Wi: outclassed here Schott: never enough Glenn: 3A attempt really derailed the program. Not sure the risk is worth it since she's a nervy skater...
