    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...

    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?

    Yeah, she's been getting over a stress fracture in her foot. I thought she might be at National's after missing the entire GP season, but she wasn't fully healed. I was hoping she'd be at the Olys and Worlds.

    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.

    Interesting that Shizuka will be attending; I'm glad that she's willing to face the competition, unlike some other OGM. She is truly an admirable athlete and person. 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.

    In this case, I'm very doubtful she'll show up. I don't think she can ever get back into top form in a couple of weeks. But then if Sasha can (supposedly) do it...Shiz SHOULD be able to do that and THEN some.

    At least having the ladies OGM can pump some star power into this event. Without her, there's nothing!
