I am just wondering if people know the protocol for how many entries each country gets for spots on the Senior Grand Prix circuit coming up this fall?
Where Agnes Zawadzki medaled at Jr. Worlds, she has earned at least one senior GP event for next season, but she hasn't competed on the JGP yet so could she compete in both?
Will Christina Gao and Amanda Dobbs get senior GP assignments where they beat Liang, Gilles, Hughes, Czisny, and Zhang at nationals? Does it depend on if Alissa and Emily are skating next year, if Kimmie decides to compete again, etc. Also Angela Maxwell didn't compete at nationals but has already been on the JGP twice and made the final both times, will she get senior GP events next season if she is not still injured? I'm unaware of the protocol the USFSA uses to determine who gets to go because I know this season Bebe, Alexe, and Becky Bereswill all had events even though they didn't have particularly great results last season.
Polina Agafonova also medaled at JW but where she is so young and didn't go to the JGPF this year I don't know if Russia will send her to the JGP or SGP next year. Polina Shelepen and Anna Ovcharova just missed medaling at JW but with so many younger girls finally eligible for JGP next year I wonder if they will compete on the SGP as they are both old enough. Polina S has all her JGP medals to back her up and Anna was 2nd at Junior nationals and the 3rd finisher at senior nationals that will be eligible for the SGP next year (she finished 5th, but the 3rd and 4th place finishers will go to JGP next year as they were too young for it this season and will be too young for SGP next season). Anyone know how many ladies Russia can send to the SGP next year, or does it depend on Worlds? I assume Alena and Ksenia will go, but after those two, these three girls seem to be the next in line to go.
So yeah, essentially I am confused. If anyone knows more about GP assignments and such, please share your knowledge.
