    They qualified 2 skaters, with 1 direct entry (Najarro), as Charbonneau was 6th last year. However, Vanessa Grenier who was the second entry did not make it out of the preliminary round.

    Sorry to hear that.

    Miyabi Oba is the first skater officially qualified to the FS! Good for her, she has been my favorite so far.

    My feed has been terrible in this group so far :(

    It's amazing how deep the Japanese talents are. The way I understand it, Oba is not the #1 jr. lady in Japan.

    Oba was 3rd in the Japanes Junior Nats and 8th in Senior Nats. She beat Japan's #1 Junior Risa Shoji in the preliminary round.

    I agree that the risk is there, but I don't think that Canada's as screwed as it seems.

    In Senior Worlds, yes, being 4th after the 1st group, you'll probably be buried by the higher-ranked skaters coming up in the remaining groups.

    In Junior Worlds, however, because there are many very talented skaters for whom this is their first season, many of the top skaters don't yet have the results to have high world rankings and thus end up in the earlier groups, and vice versa (i.e. skaters expected to do less well do end up in later groups). For example, Risa Shoji is in group 2, and some girls that didn't do so well this season are in the final few groups.

    As such, I don't think it's too much of a stretch to predict that enough girls will place below Alexandra to allow her to make the FS.

    Yes, there's Risa Shoji, Miyabi, Yuki Nishino, Kako Tomotaki, Yukiko Fujisawa, and many, many more.

    I think it's quite likely that Najarro will qualify to the FS. However, I don't think she'll make it to the top 2 groups or earn a top 8 spot in order to get two spots for Canada. She's lacking the big jumps and while her spins and basics are solid, they're not really special. She has not been very consistent this season. Hicks, Zawadzki, Gao, Ohba, Shoji, Nishino, Tuktamysheva, Sotnikova, Shelepen, Vannut, Li and Silete are just a handful of the skaters who can outscore her easily.

    Thank you! That's working really well for me, though with a bit of a delay.

    Shoji: 3S+3T looked good, 3Lo looked UR, 2A very nice. I got these from the replay, a lot of frozen screens on the stream.
