If they had passed a rule at the last Congress that returning Olympic medalists would be eligible for Grand Prix assignments, then so be it. But they didn't. They are just ignoring their own rules. I wish some skater who only got 1 assignment would sue them.
First off let me start by saying that I am so excited to be going to SA!!
I am not going to get to excited about anything as I am sure that in the next few months there will be a ton of changes!!
Now...when the heck did Shen and Zhao decided that they were going to come back? I was not expecting this...I really enjoyed seeing them in SOI and I am quite surprised that they are coming back!!!
Who are the two pairs teams that the US is going to fill at SA?
And who is going to fill that third spot for the women in SA??? I am sure that there will be speculation until that spot is filled.
The TEB field for the women blows my mind!!!
If Del/Sho show up at SA (which I don't hold much hope unless Isabelle plans on giving birth on the ice) the dance field is really packed!!
Plushenko in Russia...I will believe it when the competition is over.
Should be an interesting year and should be full of surprises!!
