Im so out of the loops so many questions about World Entries:

Men
CAN - Messing?? I thought Sadovsky had the better year.
ISR - Good for Bychenko but has Samohin been so bad this non season?
RUS - Other than Russian final cup what other thing has Semenenko going against Aliev?

Ladies
FRA - Meite again?? Wasnt there a new lady champion or is this another shady French pick?
KOR - Where's Eunsoo Lim????
RUS - No sub status for Usacheva????? I honestly thought she had the spot over Liza until I saw the news.
USA - Chen over Glenn is bullllll

Pairs
CHN - How did Wang & Huang get minimun scores??
UKR - What happened with Ivan Pavlov partnership?

Dance
FIN - there was a promising new team. Are they done already?
FRA - Are Lauraiult & Le Gac still in the black list??
ESP - how was the selection done? Just nationals???

Men

They both had only one event but Messing scored higher.
ISR - Good for Bychenko but has Samohin been so bad this non season?
Yep.:gallopin1
RUS - Other than Russian final cup what other thing has Semenenko going against Aliev?
He won some other domestic events, but it seems like it was the Cup Final mainly that did it.
KOR - Where's Eunsoo Lim???
Sixth at nationals with a very bad free skate.
RUS - No sub status for Usacheva????? I honestly thought she had the spot over Liza until I saw the news.
Not senior-eligible.
Pairs
CHN - How did Wang & Huang get minimun scores??
Junior scores count now.
UKR - What happened with Ivan Pavlov partnership?
Retired. Screwed by the fed.
Dance
FIN - there was a promising new team. Are they done already?
No word.
FRA - Are Lauraiult & Le Gac still in the black list??
Seems like they’ve really plunged in the standings.
ESP - how was the selection done? Just nationals???
It hasn’t been. There’s a virtual skate off still to happen.

You're not the only one.. I cant even identify Russian men's team members now apparently.

And, YES, Chen over Glenn is unjust! Its not like Chen is reigning World Silver Medalist, so not taking the chance on Glenn and her triple axels IMO takes a hit to the sport in USA.

(Could you imagine if Bradie gets her 3 axel.. My dream Oly team would be Alysa, Amber and Bradie with the whole squad firing off 3 axels)

Schott is scheduled to be in the penultimate SP group at Worlds. :rofl:

Now is the time to go for 3F+3T!

And speaking of Belgium I HOPE SO MUCH Lil Sis 2.0 can make final flight after SP.
Her jumps looked so secure at Challenge Cup last weekend. If she can do that again at Worlds, she deserves final flight.

As for Lil Sis 1.0, I'm worried top 24 may be a struggle. It's a deep field!

He's Mishin's and would have done the JGP this season. He had good results over the Russian Cup series, but not so good at R nationals, but came back strong for the R cup finals which the Fed went with in all 4 disciplines. Between Mishin and Moskvina, they have 5 out of 11 skater/teams. Not bad for the octogenarians

Some short notes and impressions from RCF besides the things and stories I've already posted:
Men
  • I liked Mark the best, even considering his mistakes and all. He managed to mantain speed and lightness in his skating through-out the whole program.
  • Mozalev has nice gliding but his jumping technique is rather odd, especially his his hands position going into the jumps.
  • They are all the headcases and the results were super unpredictable, and I totally loved that. It's nice to not know the winner/medalists from the start, it's nice to have an intrigue. But it would have been also nice, if they skated cleanly :shuffle:

Pairs
- Pepeleva's lines are to die for!!
I know da boss is a fan of their LP, but the sound was awful at the arena (i am not joking, I even got a notification from my watch that this sound may hurt my ears :p)
  • I'd say Kadyrova/Balchenko were the fastest/lightest skaters here..
  • Definitely preferred Daria and Denis in the LP, but the final result is compeletely fair
  • As much as I love M/G's SP this season and can't argue with Galliamov being the top Russian pairs guy, they still have troubles with speed and flow, especially in the second half. Moskvina's packaging did wondres this season, but their basics haven't improved that much.

Ladies
  • Usacheva has the best basics among the upcoming trio of Valieva/Usacheva/Khromykh.. It's a pity her programs are so bland. Her programs are extremely full of transitions and yet she manages to mantain the speed, she is also not that frantic even with Gleikh's choreo
  • Frolova' skating is just beautiful :love:
  • Liza has improved so much despite her age, sometimes it's hard to believe.. her spins are better than they were ust two years ago, her ice coverage has imroved. Of course, she is still lacking the speed and transitions sometimes, but if you compare Liza from 2015 and now - wow
  • Nugu is a star and an attention seeker (in a good way) haha

Ice Dance
Didn't see a lot, only SinKats RD on saturday - I was surprised with how good amd ready they looked given their injuries and illnesses this season.
I'd love to see their FD live as well, but the train ride back home was worth it :lol:

@Ka3sha , thanks so much for your impressions!

Of course that's the face I love the most :rofl:

Be happy, it was not Simple Song#3, your watch may have activated the self-destruction-mode.
Nugu is a star and an attention seeker (in a good way) haha
Surprise surprise.

Nope.
We will make it through the season with this one.

Boss #1 and #2 felt sorry for @Vagabond and @Laney , so we give them just few more weeks.
How dare you!!! Isn't it important that he keeps us entertained with all his BBQs, his sunsets, his cars... He's at least the second sub for worlds... ok, out of 3 skaters or so but who cares... #PosterboyForever!!!!!!!!!!

There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
But Danny Salmon makes us strong

Nugu made it to sub status! :eek:
:gallopin1 world dominance status is only a matter of time folks!

Piotr and and the trainwreck wings sub too.
As much as I like him, no Mark, no Ignatov is pure bullshit.
Omg this!

Wings for the world💪
But seriously, why don't they just put them all up as subs?
Maybe The Stamina Boys opted out?

At Russian cup final, some people in the PBP kept writing about appearance of some Hot Sergei on screen.
That man is a fraud, and the original was already seen in the group before.
