    Thanks for the clarification, RUKen, I must've had a brain freeze also.

    How come Korea only has two spots then and not three if Yuna won last year and she was the only person from Korea to compete in the ladies event?

    If Rochette is performing in Connecticut on March 19th, it's pretty unlikely she's competing in the World Championships in Torino on the 22nd right?

    Her retirement has not announced officially, but I think she will ... as she starts working at Fuji TV this spring, and it's not a special spot like an athlete spot.

    Joannie performs in Connecticut on Friday, the 19th, and the Ladies SP is on Friday the 26th, a week later, so there should be no problem. She'll probably leave for Torino on Saturday and have plenty of time to unwind before her first practice.

    Yu-na is going; apparently, after the Olympics, instead of resting, she and Brian Orser started critiquing and looking for weaknesses to improve on between now and World's. Intense, yeah. But she said she was going, regardless if she won the gold at the Olys or not beforehand.

    I thought Ryan Bradley was just named as Evan Lysacek's replacement.

    If Ryan broke his ankle, it must have just happened, because he was just named to the World Team a few days ago.

    And I still haven't seen confirmation of the rumor posted above that Vaughn Chipeur has withdrawn.

    Wow, dedication, and what a competitor! For the sake of the sport itself and for her fans, i hope she remains competitive for as long as possible!
