3. ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final 2021/22 – Qualification Criteria

Eh, so only 4 pairs in total? Why :wuzrobbed

Edit: What I would've done :p is take the average scores from all those who competed twice and put the skaters in order based on those. And then just choose the top 6 or 7 or whatever. And add the Japanese host spots.

The big winner of this is Zhilina, who (by plain reading) is now qualified for the Final despite not being able to skate a second event.

Also, in dazzling ISU fashion, they waited so long to announce this that the "if there are seven different winners" criterion is already obsolete in all three categories.
She definitely benefits from this but, there are 3 other big winners...

Thorngren, Chiu and Brown/Brown - their winning scores are well below the top 2 non-winners in their disciplines.

Probably because there are only 4 pairs events on the JGP and a pairs warm up group is 4 teams so it makes for a nice cut off. Though, I think they would have only qualified the top 5 dance teams and kept that to just one warm-up group as well.

Wesley Chiu scored 217.59 in winning bronze at JGP Krasnoyarsk so he's "legit." ;)
True. He's capable of scoring well. And, I suppose Thorngren has a higher base value that would get her closer to 200+ if she lands her 3A in the FS.

Currently qualified in each discipline by virtue of their JGP wins:

Men
Ilya Yablokov RUS (Ljubljana)
Gleb Lutfullin RUS (Krasnoyarsk & Gdansk)
Wesley Chiu CAN (Courchevel 2)
Ilia Malinin USA (Courchevel 1)
Kiriil Sarnovskiy RUS (Kosice)

Women
Lindsay Thorngren USA (Courchevel 1)
Isabeau Levito USA (Courchevel 2)
Sofia Akateva RUS (Krasnoyarsk & Gdansk)
Adeliia Petrosian RUS (Ljubljana)
Veronika Zhilina RUS (Kosice) - she's currently injured but the JGPF is 2 months away

Pairs
Anastasia Mukhortova/Dimitry Evgenyev RUS (Kosice)
Ekaterina Chikmareva/Matvei Ianchenkov RUS (Krasnoyarsk & Gdansk)

Dance
Katarina Wolfkostin/Jeffrey Chen USA (Courchevel 1)
Oona Brown/Gage Brown USA (Courchevel 2)
Natalie d'Alessandro/Bruce Waddell CAN (Kosice)
Irina Khavronina/Dario Cirisano RUS (Krasnoyarsk & Gdansk)
Vasilisa Kaganovskaia/Valeriy Angelopol RUS (Ljubljana)

Not sure who has the highest total points for the extra spots should there be less than 6 different winners in Women, Men or Dance, or less than 4 in Pairs.

Interesting. Let’s unpack this as if it were a housewives episode

What does everyone think? At first I was going to complain and then I saw all of the US entries so I think I’m good

It's definitely a winning situation for the non-Russians (mostly US and CAN skaters I think) as there are now plenty of skaters who will be making it in from the first 2 events when the Russians weren't attending.

This is much more fair than taking highest scores - those who competed early definitely would've been at a disadvantage otherwise given the way the scores suddenly shot up when Russian's began competing again.
I wouldn't have taken the highest score but either the average of both events or the scores of 2 events added together (basically the same result).

Once we have the JGP Linz results we'll be able to compare the final qualifiers with who would have qualified under all the alternate criteria.

They also announced this after JSF assigned their best juniors to senior GPs lol

So Ilya, Isabeau and the Browns are in no matter the result at the upcoming JGP Linz. Woohoo! Same with the Russians Mukhortova/ Evgenyev in Pairs and Sarnovsky in Men’s...into the JGP Finals no matter the results in Linz. Woohoo!

I’m curious to see if the powers-that-be do things to ensure unique (first time) gold medalists in Linz? If Isabeau is the best, she should win a 2nd gold, for ex.

Yes, they're all in, no matter what.

Dance will be really interesting since Ling/Wein had some errors in their FD in Krasnoyarsk, IIRC. I'm not sure they'll be able to increase their score enough to catch up with Leonteva/Gorelkin. And it will be interesting to see if the Browns score can jump into the 160-range. They really are the outlier in dance.

I would be shocked if any of the men scheduled for Linz beat both Sarnovskiy and Malinin.

Women - I love been feeling like this event is Muravieva's since Zhilina was replaced by Zinina.

The possibility would be Kovalev of Russia, who seemed unbeatable in the SP, then bombed the LP to finish 4th (Krasnoyarsk). His total best score is 222 or thereabouts (Volvo 2019).

So strange not to do at least one event in Asia and one in North America...jeez...but does anyone know what the deal is with Orleans, France, bidding and getting 2023-24 GPF without 2022-23 assigned yet :lol:

Artem Kovalev would be possible, if he can repeat the SP from his first event and do a better FS. He came 4th with a 212 score with a very messy free. He's the only one I could see doing it.

Thanks for the update! Good for all the US JGPF qualifiers who automatically qualify for Nationals now. I don't hate this system as all the event winners are worthy, but yea the 4 pairs thing feels a bit cheap and sad to me, oh well. They'll have other opportunities to compete, sans prize money, at all the Russian events. :p

ISU officially announced the JGP Finalist qualifiers today: https://www.isu.org/isu-news/news/1...inal-after-successful-series?templateParam=15
("The host country Japan received one wild card entry for the Junior Women and Men, so that there will be seven competitors in these disciplines.")

Ilia Malinin (USA) leads the Men’s finalists after winning the first event in Courchevel (FRA) and the last event in Linz (AUT). Gleb Lutfullin (RUS) picked up two gold medals in Krasnoyarsk (RUS) and in Gdansk (POL). They are joined by Ilya Yablokov (RUS), Kirill Sarnovskiy (RUS) and Wesley Chiu (CAN), who won one event each. Egor Rukhin (RUS) made it to the Final with a silver.

Sofia Akateva (RUS) is the top qualifier in the Junior Women and the only one with two victories in the series, which came in Russia and Poland. Veronika Zhilina (RUS), Sofia Muravieva (RUS), Adeliia Petrosian (RUS), Isabeau Levito (USA) and Lindsay Thorngren (USA) proceed with one gold medal each.

In the Ice Dance, Irina Khavronina/Dario Cirisano (RUS) struck gold on home ice and in Gdansk and are the top team in the Final with two victories. Vasilisa Kaganovskaia/Valeriy Angelopol (RUS), Katarina Wolfkostin/Jeffrey Chen (USA), Natalie d’Alessandro/Bruce Waddell (CAN), Sofya Tyutyunina/Alexander Shustitskiy (RUS) and Oona Brown/Gage Brown (USA) won one event each to qualify.

Pair Skaters Ekaterina Chikmareva/Matvei Ianchenkov (RUS) earned their ticket to Osaka with wins in Krasnoyarsk and Gdansk. Natalia Khabibullina/Ilya Knyazhuk (RUS) collected the gold in Linz while Anastasia Mukhortova/Dmitry Evgenyev (RUS) topped the podium in Kosice. Ekaterina Petushkova/Evgenii Malikov (RUS) qualified with their silver medal from Poland.


How did Petushkova/Malikov get in ahead of Safina/Berulava?

179.27 Karina SAFINA / Luka BERULAVA GEO - Linz (bronze); 168.26 Kosice (silver)
170.46 Ekaterina PETUSHKOVA / Evgenii MALIKOV RUS - Krasnoyarsk (bronze); 169.80 Gdansk (silver)

ISU Communication No. 2431 (Oct. 4, 2021):
B. Junior Pairs
i) The 4 winners of each individual ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Event will qualify for
the Final.
ii) Should there be fewer than 4 different individual winners out of the 4 individual ISU Junior
Grand Prix of Figure Skating Events because a Pair has won 2 JGP Events, all the different
individual winners will qualify for the Final. In addition, the best 2nd placed Pairs(s), 3rd placed
Pairs(s) and so forth by total score, who are not yet qualified as a winner, would be invited to
the Final to reach the number of 4 entries.

They went by best second place score and third place scores weren't considered. P/M's 169.8 from their silver medal in Gdansk was higher than S/B's 168.26 silver medal in Kosice. It's only after all the second place scores are accounted for that third place scores are considered.

The key is the highlighted section:
B. Junior Pairs
i) The 4 winners of each individual ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Event will qualify for
the Final.
ii) Should there be fewer than 4 different individual winners out of the 4 individual ISU Junior
Grand Prix of Figure Skating Events because a Pair has won 2 JGP Events, all the different
individual winners will qualify for the Final. In addition, the best 2nd placed Pairs(s), 3rd placed
Pairs(s) and so forth by total score
, who are not yet qualified as a winner, would be invited to
the Final to reach the number of 4 entries.
By which the ISU meant that they rank the scores of the silver medalists at the event where they won the silver medal.

Agreed, at least for pairs. I don't understand why they couldn't just use the normal ranking system for pairs since none of the events were really affected by c**** restrictions. If they had used the normal system Safina/Berulava would have made it over Petushkova/Malikov since they would have been tied on points (13+11/2nd+3rd) but S/L would have gone through on the better combined scores.

If they did it in normal way, there would be no issue whether to choose Petushkova/Malikov or Safina/Berulava. Both pairs would qualify, because in the ‘normal system’ as it has been until now, there have always been six junior pairs qualifying. And Kostiukovich/Briukhanov would also qualify, as a pair number 6.

I think it depends if they're going to try and stuff all seven junior singles skaters into a single warmup or do two separate warmups. If it's two warmups, as opposed to the usual one, this would eat into the schedule and is maybe why they would reduce the number of pairs (one warmup instead of 2, 4 programs instead of 6).
