    question about 4CC

    Does anyone know how the US plans on sending anyone to compete at 4cc since nationals ends Jan 24 and 4cc starts the 25 in Korea?

    Good question. I do not know the answer.

    The way the Nationals schedule is set up this year, this will not be a problem for the men and pairs, who will finish their events by Jan. 17. I would guess that the International Committee will name the men's and pairs international assignments as soon as the nationals results are in.

    It will be a problem for the ladies and especially the ice dancers, who will finish competing on Jan. 23 (or 22 for the dancers?). The exact schedules for Nationals and 4Cs haven't been released yet. It's likely that the CDs at 4Cs would take place on Jan. 26, which only leaves about 3 days for the dance teams to get to Korea.

    I would also expect that none of the Olympic team members will go to 4Cs.

    If no Olympic team members from any country go to 4CC, that nearly gives the U.S. a lock on the 4CC ladies' title. While the U.S. may not have any ladies' superstars at the moment, we do have an unusually deep team. Whichever U.S. ladies do not go to the Olympics should be able to take the title.

    True but with the the ladies free skate being on the 23 it gives them no time to prepare for 4CC. Its the same thing with dance.

    i must agree. I think it might be better on the single skaters cause it be like one long competition instead of the usually one week break that may trick you into resting on your loins. The skater will already be prepared due to nationals. The main question is the jet lag and time change. The ice dancers are the only ones i see with a major disadvantage.

    I wish US nationals weren't held so late each year. I think the skaters would be fine if it was a week earlier.

    The Japanese are the only team that will send 3 ladies to the Olympics. Can the 4th best Japanese lady beat the 3rd best American?

    Yes, any of Nakano, Ando or Suzuki (let's face it, one of those three ladies is gonna miss the games..) is capable of beating Zhang, Wagner, Flatt, etc. Last season the 4th japanese lady (Suzuki) beat the US national champion (Czisny). Im not saying that will happen but it is a more than likely possibility.

    Yes, that's what I'm hearing from various reliable sources. USFS does plan to send a full 4C team to Korea, however.

    It's tougher for the US Icedance since they won't know until after FD at Nationals which will be Saturday night when the 4CC starts on the following Monday. They won't arrive at Korea until Tuesday. They'll compete TR for the CD at 4CC when they have GW at Nationals. I guess all senior teams have to practice TR as well just in case they got to do 4CC?? Some teams have never competed TR this season, will be a challenge .

    I'll do a little more research during the week, but justin.tv/skate_skate may work.

    Also, aussieSKATES is planning to upload any clips of Australian skaters that can be accessed to their youtube site later in the week.
