Does anyone know why Liam Firus was named as a substitute, but not Elladj Baldé, who finished one spot higher than Liam at the Canadian Championships?

Yeah, I guess Russia decides the world team based on the performance at europeans.I see they named Gachinski to the Russian team instead of Menshov, even though Menshov is the National champion.
Baldé needed to skate at an international event this season to meet the minimum score requirement for skating at Worlds.
ETA: Oops, oleada beat me to it!
Also no offense to KM but AG is younger (17) and if they want to groom him for the future they would be better off sending him now over a 28 year old.
herios, re: I/K
That's different then. I do think they were overscored, but I will say Euros was the first competition where I had an inkling of what everyone else saw in them. Still the most overhyped skaters ever in my experience.
