    JSF skaters classification published

    I don't know if this should be called "skaters classification" or rather "team envelope" ... whatever.
    Published today.

    As has been announced beforehand, no more segmentation of junior/senior regarding this classification.

    Surprising that Suguri sqeezed in and Takeda not making "A".

    Special reinforcement doesn't necessarily mean that you are seeded for the Nationals in December, says the JSF.

    Mao Asada
    Akiko Suzuki
    Miki Ando
    Kanako Murakami
    Haruka Imai

    The Japanese don't even pretend to have pairs and dance teams.

    Good to see the junior champions getting tons of support as they enter seniors. Hanyu and Murakami are probably going to be two of the most scrutinized young skaters of the GP season! Very high expectations. Like last season you had Brezina and did really well. The name of a lady skater going from junior to senior GP totally escapes me right now for some reason.

    No I just skipped copying it, LOL.

    Reed/Reed and Takahashi/Tran are receiving special reinforcement, and the following 2 couples are receiving "B" reinforcement in Ice Dance.

    Emi Hirai/Taiyo Mizutani
    Misato Komatsubara/Kokoro Mizutani

    With the World Team trophy thing going, I would expect Japan to provide funding for whatever pair and dance teams it has at the elite level. So the Reeds are definitely not retiring? Given their injury issues, I wondered.

    As you can see there are no more names of Aki Sawada and Rumi Suizu. I hope the're not retiring like Akiko Kitamura did the year before.

    The Reeds aren't retiring that's for sure.
