And it is not like SC isn’t known for sending skaters out who do not meet the criteria when it suits them. Again, confidence is a huge part of figure skating success.

And again, again, Millard also performed very well during the summer series and I believe was the only BC novice girl who earned a bye to Challenge so clearly she has been more consistent than Zhu or Harwood.The criteria are set up well before the season starts and are well-known by coaches. It is not like it is a big surprise.
