    Allie Hann McCurdy and Michael Coreno

    Are they competing this season? I like them very much.

    They are competing at Lake Placid International Dance Competition this week. They are doing both their OD and FD.

    It's not very likely that they will get to the Olympics or Worlds this year. Canada has 2 spots. Crone/Poirier and Weaver/Poje and Ralph/Hill all seem to be higher ranked than Allie & Michael and more in line for the second spot.

    I really liked their 2008 OD, though (Log Driver's Waltz/Newfoundland Jig)

    Speaking of which, I think it was that OD which helped them climb the rankings, since it was the only one of its kind and was different from all the Russian dances in its country-style playfulness. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with this year again, but I have to agree their chances of competing at the Olympics and Worlds are rather slim. They could go to 4 Continents, though, couldn't they? I think not many skaters bound for the Olympics will want to go to Korea so soon before the Games.

    Yes, I agree. And I think they may well go to 4CC's--although other skaters may covet the ISU points and money they would get by placing high at 4CC's. V&M probably should skip 4CC's. In the US, I expect D&W and B&A to skip 4CC's. Both have already been 4CC's champions and will want to do whatever will keep them ready for Olympics. Consequently 4CC's will be a really important competition for teams that want to create a splash for the next season in the US and Canada. C/P and S/B (US) may well go.

    There should be 2 spots at 4CC's open (or if C/P choose not to go, 3 spots), and H-M/C may well get a chance to go, especially if they do well this fall on the GP-I believe they have at least one GP slot? Possibly contingent on performing well at LPIDC.

    Aren't the 4CCs a day after the US National Championships? If that's the case, I think the American teams going to the Olympics (which I assume will be the 09 Worlds team) and the 4th-6th place teams would go to 4CC.

    Aren't they still training in Vancouver with Victor Kraatz?

    Canada can only send 2 ice dance teams open so only the teams finishing 3rd to 5th at nationals will have a realistic chance

    It is unlikely that H-M/C will finish in the top 5 at nationals next year. They finished 6th last year and Routhier/S-L ( current junior champions) will definitely challenge them at nationals. If Paul/Islam (new pairing but doing well in summer comps so far and definitely in line for JGP spots) decide to compete senior at nationals, they also could challenge. There is every chance H-M/C could slip further behind.

    Not completely surprising as H-M/C clearly took big steps backwards last year. Perhaps a change of scenery will fire them up. They definitely do have to change the routine somehow as what they were doing clearly was not working.

    The question is, of course, whether Allie & Michael can nab the 5th spot or better. They will definitely have to improve over their last year's performance a lot. OTOH, they did folk very, very well in 2008, so this year's OD plays to their strength. I wouldn't rule them out for 5th.

    This year's CD's (Golden Waltz and Tango Romantica) are very tricky ones, and that may be the key to who gets the 5th spot.

    I expect to see both Routhier/Saucke-Lacelle & Paul/Islam aiming for Jr. Worlds, (I think they are both eligible?)., as they have not medalled at Jr Worlds as yet.

    At some point, I expect ice-dance.com will finish posting their reports. Icenetwork basically has nothing so far.
