It is so great, that the Austrian pair Stina Martini/Severin Kiefer are still on the list.
I thought that they split, because they are not on the list for the JGP in Austria.
Oh no!! They are out now. probably they split

The 3 U.S. pair teams entered here -- Cassie Andrews/Timothy LeDuc, Ashley Cain/Joshua Reagan, and Kylie Duarte/Colin Grafton -- are official, but the other U.S. skaters (Cesario, Gong, Messing, Farris, Bonacorsi/Mager, Friedenberg/Nykiel) are 'placeholders' until their results are known from JGP #2 in Romania next week.
Here's a minor mystery I haven't figured out: on the official USFS site, Joshua Farris is listed as the sole entrant here. But the ISU site has two spots assigned to US men (Farris and Dolensky as either listed placeholders or actual entrants). And the US should be able to have a second spot here, as China is apparently not sending anyone to this competition. Is there a more updated ISU list than the one on the website? Or is the USFS still going to add someone, or are they just foregoing the option to send an additional man, for some reason?
No they don´t split.
Good news or?
There was a report before the JGP in Austria, that they will not skate, because they had not enough time to train together!

The problem is, that Severin had to go to the Army ... that´s the reason for the lack in training time!
The biggest aim for both is, to go to Junior Worlds this year. Good luck to both!
I believe Kristina Zazeeva will replace Anna Ovcharova here. Apparently, Anna will go to the last 2 JGP events if she is able.
Then what IS official? I always believed the USFS site was correct when in disagreement with the ISU roster, but now the ISU roster lists Dolensky and the USFS site does not. Is Dolensky in or is he not?
Dolensky was added to the USFS site on 9/23.
Zazeeva replace Ovcharova.
Artem Grigoriev has been removed with no replacement.
