Let's call it the Grand Prix Semifinals -Khoklova & Novitski have also withdrawn
Jana is ill.
At what point do we call this the Grand Prix Semi-Final?
And if two more teams withdraw, do they cancel it altogether, or just bring in Rubleva & Shefer, given that the substitute list would be exhausted?
This is already being discussed in the "Who's in the Grand Prix Final - Dance" thread: http://goldenskate.com/forum/showthr...t=29175&page=2
Moreover, considering that 5 out of 6 of the original lineup are there (Khoklova/Novitski were the 1st substitutes) including the top 2 qualifiers, I don't think it's a big enough deal to call it the "Semifinals".
I guess these teams just want to make sure they do not take any unnecessary risks with their health in an olympic year.
