Question about moving on to FS (Pairs)
Does anyone know how many teams qualify to move on to the Free Skate at Worlds?
Yup- 16 in pairs, top 30 from the compulsory to original dance (which I'm pretty sure there are 28 or 29 entries, so all teams will make it), top 20 to the free dance, and then 24 in ladies and men from the short program.
Only 16 in pairs? Hmm...For some reason I was under the impression that it was 20 at Worlds...Wow...Thanks everyone for the answers!
It used to be, but was changed this year. The pairs field always used to be the smallest at the Worlds (barely reaching 20), but this year it actually has just as many entries as the dance event.
Danielle Montalbano/ Evgeni Krasnopolsky are on the list!

Yeah, and didn't ISU then encourage nations to develop pairs FS? Don't know exactly how, but I think with money for training camps, better coaching etc. Now, after succeeding(26 pairs in the field), this new rule seems strange to me.

Since some contries won´t let their skaters and also pairs go to worlds when they don´t have a good chance of making the final. Especially for paris this is critical, since there are almost no competitions in europe to gain the experience the pairs need to improve.
