    Protocols are up. The difference for E/L was a 2.00 GOE on their no hands lift. I/B got low GOE's and the 3a had an mins GOE of almost half a point. Both teams got level 4s on all graded elements except the twist.

    BTW, Axels Loops and Spins blog is reporting that the selection will be announced live on IceNetwork...For Free.

    Rena and John did amazingly well but Amanda and Mark flew. I think time is on their side - they seem likelier to rise to the challenge at the Oly's. I'd stick with the Nats top two and send them.

    BTW - I loved watching Aaron and Cohen. What a little cutie - she could hardly keep the smile off her face! They look well matched. Hope they continue.

    Here are the "official" selection criteria with E/L and I/B's results

    1. 2010 Nationals: E/L=2nd, I/B=3rd
    2. 2009 GPF: neither competed
    3. 2009 WC: neither competed
    4. 2009 4CC: I/B=7th, E/L did not compete
    5. 2009 WJC: neither competed
    6. 2009 JGPF: neither competed

    Regular GP events are not an "official" factor for some reason. Neither are results dating back more than a year. I think they should stick with the above and send E/L. (The 7th at 4CC does not sway it for me).

    Or they could send both to 2010 4CC and send the higher finisher to Vancouver.

    I think there's going to be a bit of controversy about it, though I agree with the decision. But I do feel bad for I/B.

    I hope it's not steeped in controversy

    this also gives us an idea of how the rest of the team will be decided.

    I disagree, sending a team that has not delievered on the international stage and that has never gone to worlds, is a mistake. I/B should file a motion objecting to the ruling.

    I feel the same way. Despite Keauna's and Rockne's 5th place finish, I think they should've been named to the Olympic team. They have good results internationally and have more potencial on reaching the top 10. Again, this is just my opinion.

    Why do people still think that Keauna and Rockne have a better chance of a top ten finish? They didn't do it last year, but Caydee and Jeremy did. Sure they had decent scores on the Grand Prix, but their programs had mistakes and how can you compare results from different competitions with different competitors? I feel bad for the team, but I think the committee made a good decision.
