    This (http://www.owia.org/sports.cfm?SportID=3) would very much lead me to believe Australia will send her if a position is indeed available. She is (along with O'Brien/Merriman) listed under the Athlete Bios section as well.

    I think Chinese Taipei makes its decision about who to send to Worlds-and the Olympics, should they be sending someone-at Four Continents, where Chaochih Liu is now extremely unlikely to make the free, while the other two have already qualified. Kiang leads Wang, but by less than three points, and the latter has the stronger record, and I suspect will overtake her in the free.

    Ok, this is how the entries seem to be shaping up for olympics,

    1 Miki Ando
    2 Mao Asada
    3 Akiko Suzuki
    4 Yu Na Kim
    5 Kwak Min Jeong
    6 Joannie Rochette
    7 Cynthia Phaneuf
    8 Rachel Flatt
    9 Mirai Nagasu
    10 Carolina Kostner
    11 Laura Lepisto
    12 Kiira Korpi
    13 Elene Gedevanishvili
    14 Sarah Meier
    15 Julia Sebestyen
    16 Alena Leonova
    17 Ksenia Makarova
    18 Elena Glebova
    19 Tugba Karademir
    20 Jenna MacCorkell
    21 Ivana Reitmayerova
    22 Sarah Hecken
    23 Sonia Lafuente
    24 Teodora Postic
    25 Miriam Ziegler
    26 Isabelle Pieman (now confirmed, BOC changed their mind)

    four spots remaining so:

    27 China: not definite but possibly Yan Liu (currently at 4CC's)
    28 Poland: not definite but possibly Anna Jurkiewicz (was not at euros)
    29 Georgia gave up their second spot, and Israel came in but because
    of Tamar Katz poor showing at euros they now declined their spot, then went to CZE but they also had poor show with Martina Bocek (very new to the scene, and Nella Simaova under performing this year, so they declined, went to UZB with Anastasia Gimazetdinova, has little form, currently at 4CC's so possibly that spot is hers.
    30 Switzerland gave up their second spot and next one down is AUS, possibly Cheltzie Lee (currently at 4CC's) so we shall see

    So more than likely

    27 China (they qualified anyway at Nebelhorn)
    28 Poland (qualified at worlds, they dont seem to have strict criteria)
    29 Uzbekistan (Gimazetdinova good talent, can be top 15 if her SP is on) and Uzbek committee know that, plus it will be her swan song, so I hope she goes)
    30 Australia (been lucky as the third alternate).

    I have to confess I do feel sorry for

    Sweden: Viktoria Helgesson did a good job at Euro's
    Italy: And with most pundits on here shame Valentina Marchei cant go, was denied in 06 and because of Kostners disastrous skate at worlds no 2nd spot for her. I have a feeling she wont be selected for Worlds either this year, but she has had a good season.

    Any thoughts anyone....

    Tamar Katz is trying to appeal the decision not to let her go with the Israeli team to Vancouver. Someone in her camp must be pretty media savvy because the story has been picked up by the New York Times. There's also a Facebook group. Well, good luck to her! I don't like it when countries leave athletes who've qualified for the Olympics at home, regardless of the sport.

    She trains in the U.S. with Peter Burrows. She started the Facebook group herself, so I think it's all her.

    I got bored and decided to done something.
    I use the top possible scores of the top 5 ladies and rank them. The possible scores are the top TES and the PCS scores they have in posted in any competitions.
    So, this is technically their personal best.
    Name SP + LP = Total
    1. Yu Na Kim: 76.72+141.30=218.02; She is very consistent in the short but not so much in the long. The LP score is iffy, it is made up of her tes in cup of russia 2007 and the pcs of the GF France this season.
    2. Mao Asada: 75.84+137.27=213.11; She is the total opposite of Yu Na. She is great in the long and can hit that score easily/ break it easily. On the other hand, she has only hit a score in the 70 in the short, but is very capable of doing it.
    3. Miki Ando: 69.30 + 134.65 = 203.95; The pcs and tes that make her scores up come from all different competitions. But she has shown this season ,in the SP, that she can be great without a 3/3. So hopefully with a 3/3, she can hit a score in the 70s like Yu Na and Mao. The long is a different story, she need to skate like never before in the LP, also the SP if she wants to keep up.
    4. Joannie Rochette: 70.00+ 127.59= 197.59; She is really amazing in the short when she hits. The long is different, she has hit a really good long in a while. The scores come from her performance at the 2008 and 2009 Skate Canada. The olympics are in Canada and that will help her.
    5. Carolina Kostner: 68.18+122.44= 190.62; She hasn't had the best season this year but she is can be great. The SP score is very iffy. She hasn't score that high since the 2007. The Long is also the same ( 2008 world) but when she did hit a core like this one she was flawed and still was amazing.

    I know she started the group herself. Having a Facebook group normally doesn't get people into the NYT, though, so I'm guessing someone must have helped her out with that.

    Wow! That's pretty cool! She very, very likely won't qualify for the freeskate...

    That's true. My point is that Tamar seems media savvy herself, so I wouldn't be surprised if she did most of the heavy lifting. But I know that other skating bloggers and Web sites have also mentioned it, so that surely has helped get some attention. And the NYT has two long-time skating reporters, so I'm sure they got wind of it officially as well)

    Sadly though it looks like the effort didn't work.

Buy her flexibility reminds me of sasha and mirai It would be wonderful if she could someday train under Orser.. she looked VERY happy about going to Olys with Yuna afterall
    I just watched her 4CC programs and I have to say, she's has potential! Her spirals and spins are quite lovely. I think the jumps will come with time. But yeah, I have a feeling she'll have to train with someone else. I feel like her coach helps starts skaters (he was Yuna's coach back in the day) but the skaters then need to go elsewhere to develop.
