World Entry List
Overall its a strong line-up only the Russians are not sending their medalist!
Notable names are
Plushenko is listed as a substitute
No N/K, or G/G
All three top chinese team (YAAAY!)
No T/M (I don't really mind)
So let me get this right- Shizuka is going to be at Worlds?
If so, good for her for not "shying" away from competition like so many other OGMs of the recent past.
I hope that Katy Taylor somehow gets to go...I feel it in my bones that she'll be there.
Nakano is going to shock & make top three, I bet. Ditto Rochette.
well wow. SHE'S THERE!
Can she repeat her Torino performance...maybe even throw in some 3-3's in there? or will Cohen upset her for the title? Stay tuned.
Or...unless she's not going and they haven't updated the page yet...
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
I thought I read somewhere that Shizuka would like to go to World's if possible...meaning if she can get the training time in, this may be unlikely due to all the media blitz...I'd love to see her there though!
What has happened to Canada's Cynthia Phaneuff (sp?)...has she been injured all year?

I hope she has a speedy recovery and gets back on the ice soon!
I am surprised that Griazev is listed considering he was 9th in his nationals.
i read that she is planning on coming back to skating for next season... I hope she heals soon too!

It's looking like it's going to be tough for Joannie to medal, with Suguri, Cohen, and Shizuka skating. If anyone can pull it out, it's probably her.
Is anyone surprised that Irina is skipping worlds? I would have thought she wanted redemption of sorts.
Shizza is on the list, but she hasn't decided yet whether to go or not. No wonder she has been super busy, and she'll make three (or four?) appearances in ice shows next couple of days. They say she will make her decision next week though.
ahhh...ok. Thanks for the clarification.

At least having the ladies OGM can pump some star power into this event. Without her, there's nothing!
looking for fresh blood
*sigh* can't wait for next year's list
