    I see they named Gachinski to the Russian team instead of Menshov, even though Menshov is the National champion.

    Fumie's on the list of substitutes for women. I thought she was like 8th at Japanese Nats.

    Do those without a "D" or "S", including Kozuka who tops the Japan list, have to do the qualifying round?

    Yeah, Euros really worked in Gachinski's favour.

    Suguri was seventh, and the 5th and 6th placers are both at juniors (Nishino and Shoji).

    The eussian federation back them politically as well. That is the reason.

    Again, Europeans seems to be the deciding result. They did that alst year, sending Borodulin instead of Voronov to Vancouver when the latter flamed out at Euros. If it was politics, they wouldn't have fallen behind K/A in the FD at Nationals, imo.

    IP, I really think they were overmarked at Europeans.

    As for the men:

    Jorik HENDRICKX BEL

    Jordan JU TPE

    Viktor ROMANENKOV EST

    Bela Papp FIN

    Harry Hau Yin LEE HKG

    Abzal RAKIMGALIEV KAZ

    Min-Seok KIM KOR

    Alexander MAJOROV SWE (with his own thread )

    These are from small FS nation. E.g. I think Majorov sees this as a good preparation before real worlds. And actually I'm not sure if Sweden has a third guy who has the required tech points of junior worlds. Ondrei Spiegl, the other Swede, made the SP but didn't qualify to the free skate.

    I guess it's the same for the other nations. They have few skaters who qualifies to competing internationally.

    GO all low ranked skaters

    It looks like many European Federations dont send their skaters to Tokyo, its strange that Slovakia dont send anyone according to the list, even the dance team which did a great 5th place at Junior worlds.

    Does anyone know why Victoria Muniz is not on the list? I read in a forum that her goal is to reach the final at worlds this year. I hope she is not injured!

    i think the reason is R/T made mistakes at Euro FD, and their interpretation was a little uninspired.

    Count me in on the Swedish cheering squad! I think this is Sweden's strongest Worlds team in... well, ages!

    Kristoffer Berntsson shares Menshov's fate, although in the Swede's case, it was the Nordic Championships that did him in (he finished 3rd behind Majorov and Schultheiss).
