    Fumie's on the list of substitutes for women. I thought she was like 8th at Japanese Nats.
    Suguri finished 7th, but Nishino and Shoji (who finished ahead of her) went to Jr. Worlds, so she was next in line after Suzuki.

    Is Miria a second alternate after Gao? Did I read that right?

    No, you don't. They are listed in alphabetical order, that is all. The order means nothing.

    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.
    I agree in every sense of the word!!!!

    Once again, ITA, I believe that K/A are going to surpass them next year!

    I wonder if even if ISU doesn't cancel or postpone worlds, some skaters might decide to stay home because they fear for their own safety

    I've not posted yet so I can't post links, but if you google "Alissa Czisny" on Google News, the most recent article includes quotes from Yuka Sato who updates on the situation in the Tokyo area.

    She mentions her family all being safe, and that her mom was at "Chuckyo University -- which is where Takahiko (Kozuka) and Mao (Asada) train, that's outskirts of Nagoya" and that "It was shaking hard, but no damages."

    So good news from her about her family, but also that the area around where Mao is is also fine.

    The article was posted on the Detroit Free Press.

    Oh no, and this was the year in which they could possibly medal. Hopefully this isn't the end of their eligible careers.

    The French federation has recalled Amodio from Japan. I think unless everybody, especially the athletes' parents, can be assured of the safety when and where the Worlds will be held, many entries will be withdrawn and there wouldn't be Worlds.

    Let's not forget that most competitors are some people's precious young children.
