Asher Hill got a bye to junior men's nationals because of his JGPF in dance.
I thought Dube and Davidson gave up on singles to focus on pairs?
Davidson gave up singles last year as he had minor back niggles around the time of the challenge last year.
Final placings Fedor 1, Joey Russell 2nd- no other details yet
4. Mylene BRODEUR / John MATTATALL
5. Rachel KIRKLAND / Eric RADFORD
6. Monica PISOTTA / Michael STEWART
7. Amanda VELENOSI / Mark FERNANDEZ
Teams from the senior challenges.
1 Brooke Paulin / Brian Shales WO 46.06 81.60 127.66
2 Paige Lawrence / Rudi Swiegers SK 40.58 80.54 121.12
3 Taylor Steele / Christopher Richardson WO 41.46 78.94 120.40
4 Christi Anne Steele / Adam Johnson WO 40.40 73.28 113.68
Wow, the pool of pairs teams is getting smaller every year. Again, I am not sure what the exact start order at the nationals will be or if I included all the byed pairs.

Skate order for nationals short program would be as follows( even put a blank line between each flight)
Pisotta/Stewart ( they competed junior at nationals last year)
The detailed protocols for the men's short program are now up (I was too lazy to check the other disciplines, though ): http://www.skatecanada.ca/en/events_...r/09senior.htm
Ouch, it looks like what hurt Fedor the most during this segment of competition was the -GOEs he received on almost all on his elements. His PCS of 29.50 is kinda low for him (even though it was the highest of all the guys); in comparison, his SP PCS at last year's Challenge was 31.05. Well, he did start training at the last minute, so this isn't the end of the world or anything, but I hope between now and Nats he'll work extra hard on ironing out the wrinkles.

Details up for the long.
Fedor beat Joey by a couple of points (although he had a lower technical score), but both will have to improve a bit to challenge for a medal at Canadians. Both are capable of doing so if they skate clean or close to it. Note that Maxime-Billy landed a 4t with +ve GOE in the long....
Report on another board.
Chris Mabee officially retired from competitive skating.
