Mirai Nagasu won't skate at Champs Camp, due to stress fracture in foot, but will be back on ice Sept. 1. "Just stroking at first," she says
Who is replacing Laura Lepisto?
It is sure that she will not skate?? Last I heard was she hopes to be able to skate there.
Japan Open is in one month, so I think, we must wait a little bit more to know if Laura is skating. Nobody knows when she will go back on ice. Maybe tommorrow, maybe in 2 months ...
It is rumoured on boards here that TV-Tokyo, the organizer, won't publish the replacement till the competition day.

Interesting, I guess they don't seem to care to balance the number of pro/off-GPS skaters in each team any more.
If Lepisto's withdrawal is certain I wish Kostner or Makarova could go, but Kostner usually seems to avoid competitions/shows far from where she's based and I guess the date is too close to Finlandia for Makarova, who is scheduled to skate in Finland, Canada, and Russia in the next two months.
At last, Julia Sebestyen is in.
YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *doing an imaginary back flip here, lol* (:^D
Seriously, I couldn't be happier! Julia Sebestian is always someone I have long admired, one whom tied Sonja's record this past Olympics by both having had the honor/the distinction of having competed in 4 Olympiads! *clapping*
And her jumps are to-die-for! Exactly like Irina Slutskaya's.
Team Japan is by a mile!!!Is there gonna be a broadcast?
I don't know about that, seniorita, there may be some surprises in store for us all.
Seriously, if Julia can hit all her powerful high jumps, and Zhenya as well, and not to forget Brezina, well then we're in for a dogfight! A head-to-head competition, the best kind!!!!!
BRING IT ON!!!!!!
