So theoretically someone assign to Armenia and Gdańsk 2 is now skating two weeks in a row? Not ideal for them.
Yup - it won't be easy for Bashynska/Beaumont or Kudryavsteva/Karankevich. Neset/Markelov were assigned to Armenia and Egna, so, theoretically, the USFS might be able to get them assigned to Gdansk 1.So theoretically someone assign to Armenia and Gdańsk 2 is now skating two weeks in a row?

Kudryavsteva/Karankevich are in the same position of Neset/Markelov. Also Cyprus originally had a spot in Gdansk#1 they left vacant.Yup - it won't be easy for Bashynska/Beaumont or Kudryavsteva/Karankevich.

For Neset/Markelov, I thought since he has a Russian passport, he wouldn't be able to get into Poland as of September 26...so how would he be able to enter Poland at that time? Maybe ISU got him an exception from the Polish government??USFS' International Assignments page has been updated with the following additions to the last 3 JGPs:
Women - Josephine Lee (Seo & Higase-Chen already assigned)
Men - Klein (Broussard & Xie already assigned)
Dance - Bland/Sperry (Carhart/Horovyi & Malcolm/Lafornara already assigned)
Women - Kalin & Josephine Lee
Men - Annis, Strommer (Yampolsky already assigned)
Pairs - (Baram/Tioumentsev already assigned)
Dance - Neset/Markelov (Carhart/Horovyi & Peal/Peal already assigned)
Women - Soho Lee (originally scheduled for Poland 2) & Zhang
Men - Martynov (I can only assume there's a 2nd TBD since we can send 2 men)
Dance - (Hauer/Starr & Neset/Markelov already assigned)
No idea, well beyond my pay grade as a fan.For Neset/Markelov, I thought since he has a Russian passport, he wouldn't be able to get into Poland as of September 26...so how would he be able to enter Poland at that time? Maybe ISU got him an exception from the Polish government??
Having skated competitively since age 5, Donohue won the Argentina National Figure Skating Championships in Ushuaia, Argentina, in late August to earn a berth into the 2022 JGP Solidarity Cup, which is the fifth of seven events of the Junior Grand Prix series in Gdansk, Poland. Donohue travels to Poland on Sept. 24 and begins the four-day event Sept. 28.
Listed for Solidarity Cup:
1 Cecilia DONOHUE ARG 1
She's a Columbus (Ohio) FSC skater I've enjoyed watching over the years and is now the newly crowned Argentine Jr. national champ - glad to see she has an opportunity to compete internationally.
USFS has published their reallocated entries (summarized by @Karen-W in post #185 above) but the ISU has yet to update/expand the entries for the remaining 3 JGPs (the current standings by discipline tables, linked below, also were last updated on Sept. 21).In checking the women’s assignments for the reallocations to the three remaining JGP competitions, I don’t see name of Hana Yoshida. Her 2nd competition was to have been at the canceled JGP Yerevan.
Nikolaj Memola (ITA) and Cayla Smith/Andy Deng (USA) are the first to qualify for the JGP Final with their gold & silver medals (both have 28 points) in Ostrava & Riga, respectively.Link to the thread in the Kiss & Cry section for the Junior Grand Prix series' current standings & Final qualification discussion:

Junior Women: https://results.isu.org/events/jgp2022/jgpswomen.htm

Hmmm... Going to be interesting to see what the USFS does with that extra, unassigned spot for POL 2.Following up for the US ladies, it seems the extra, still unassigned, spot is for Poland 2. Sarah Everhardt appears to be a placeholder as she's not listed on the USFS site.
Alternates: Barghout, Herrera, Higase-Chen, Krafchik, Soho Lee (already has 2), Lin-Gracey, Seo (already has 2), Stubblefield, and Zhang
ETA: Lucas Broussard is now listed as a sub for Egna so maybe he still has a shot for a second JGP
This is going to be completely personal, but I preferred it done like this (from Kerrigan, not the man who's with her):Annoyed how?
Was anyone else annoyed with the Ted Barton/Mark Hanretty commentary? I only watched the most recent event, but I just didn't care for it. I hope the senior GP stream is commentary-free.
