It does? Man the rules change so much I can never keep up anymore… Is it because there’s only one entrant and that’s why it has to be top 10? And I don’t mean to deviate the topic of this threadIt has to be top ten. As far as it goes, I think he has a solid shot. If he skates like he did at SCI or 4CC, I think he will.
This is what I'm thinking as well, and if Emily was told that before the event, then they probably did need to honour that and send her.I guess Skate Canada only sent Schizas to get her minimums in case Bausback didn't get hers. In all likelihood the decision was made after the short program.
That's not really accurate though. At Minto (late July), Amelia beat Madeline by ~8 points (Amelia was 1st with ~135, Madeline was 3rd with ~127 in Jr women group 1). Olivia's score at Wild Rose (beginning of August) was about the same as Amelia's at Minto. At North York summer skate (mid/late August), Madeline had a higher score by ~10 points (~152 to ~142), but they were in different groups. Olivia had ~134 at BC/YK skate at the same time.SC needs to pay more attention to the late bloomers when handing out assignments. It's madness that they sent Orzel and Gran to the JGP ahead of Schizas, after Schizas massively outscored them at summer comps (and finished 2nd in juniors last year!) Even I, a total nobody, could see all her potential at last year's nats. Difficult base value is obviously great but so is quality, and I'd say the odds of Schizas increasing her difficulty to be truly competitive internationally are better than those girls attaining the GOE, pcs and rotations needed to be competitive.
If they both made the free skate, either finishing in the top twelve would do it.What would it take for Canadian ladies to retain two spots for the following Worlds? If, say, Alicia ends up 11th and Emily 13th, would Canada keep two spots for 2021?
So it’s definitely do-able. It’s not as if the rest of the competitors come from Russia, Japan and Korea or are named Bradie.If they both made the free skate, either finishing in the top twelve would do it.
The lowest combination of ordinals that would work is 13+15.
She has a 3F-3T, 3S-3T and a 2A-3T (she attempts the former in the SP and the latter two in the FS). IIRC she has the highest BV of the current Canadian ladies. But she's losing points to the others in the spins & PCS - so the technical advantage isn't as apparent.Btw, does Bausback even have a 3-3? At least Schizas does.
That's kind of a larger question of approach, because Skate Canada doesn't really do that. Once they give you a JGP assignment, it's yours unless you have to withdraw for health reasons or something like that.The bigger thing is that they need to list more subs, so that they can move people around more easily. Because the entries for a lot of the events were already in before Madeline had her stronger event at North York, but I don't think they had a lot of subs for Olivia's event in Russia, so they couldn't give Madeline that one (or move say Amelia there), and there were only three left.
Depends on what you mean by "near future". The current situation heading into 2020 Worlds is largely because two of our most established/promising senior ladies have been sandbagged by injuries for two consecutive years. That can't happen a third straight year...right?Unfortunately IMO the sceanario for canadian ladies is just looking even worse in the near future, don't think that neither of Bausback or Pinault are top 10 capable so canadian ladies will go down to 1 spot next year and probably until 2022 Olympics unless Daleman recovers herself
