    List of skaters

    When I watch skating on the computer or TV, I like to have a list of competitors in front of me for scoring, notes, etc.
    So I go the the ISU website and try and copy and paste their lists into a MS Word doc, and what I get is barely usable
    and catywhompus. And it is tough to move things around so they are usable. So I end up going to Predictions and finding
    some post like theresa's in the Skate Canada thread who has somehow managed to put all the names in a neat, orderly manner
    without imbedded links and I copy and paste that. Am I missing something? Is there a website that has lists of competitors
    for each event in a a format that I can copy and paste from? All my computer education is self inflicted.

    I think you may love to play around with this site:

    http://deep-edge.net/

    Great stats. You can even do your own judging, design a legal program or preview a skater's to calculate the points, etc.

    Thanks! I found that if I copy and paste the ISU results/entries into landscape, it works better but I am definately checking out that site you gave...

    Chris, If you can wait until the Entries/Result page is up on the ISU web site:

    (Here's Skate Canada )
    Go to Entries / Results

    Click on Entries
    1 Tarrah HARVEY / Keith GAGNON CAN

    2 Tessa VIRTUE / Scott MOIR CAN

    3 Kaitlyn WEAVER / Andrew POJE CAN

    4 Anna CAPPELLINI / Luca LANOTTE ITA

    5 Ekaterina PUSHKASH / Jonathan GUERREIRO RUS

    6 Ekaterina RIAZANOVA / Ilia TKACHENKO RUS

    7 Madison CHOCK / Evan BATES USA

    Copy the skaters, and paste them into a Wordpad text file, and the above is what it looks like



    Now if the Entries/Result site isn't up yet (Like Cup of China) you Click on Ice Dance to see the entries and get a list that won't format well. Copy it, paste it into Wordpad and it looks like this:

    1 Xintong HUANG / Xun ZHENG CHN 1 2 Xiaoyang YU / Chen WANG CHN 1 3 Pernelle CARRON / Lloyd JONES FRA 2 4 Penny COOMES / Nicholas BUCKLAND GBR 3 5 Ekaterina BOBROVA / Dmitri SOLOVIEV RUS 4 6 Charlotte LICHTMAN / Dean COPELY USA 5 7 Emily SAMUELSON / Todd GILLES USA 5 8 Maia SHIBUTANI / Alex SHIBUTANI USA 5

    Then all you have to do is add a space after each competitor

    1 1 Xintong HUANG / Xun ZHENG CHN
    1 2 Xiaoyang YU / Chen WANG CHN
    1 3 Pernelle CARRON / Lloyd JONES FRA
    2 4 Penny COOMES / Nicholas BUCKLAND GBR
    3 5 Ekaterina BOBROVA / Dmitri SOLOVIEV RUS
    4 6 Charlotte LICHTMAN / Dean COPELY USA
    5 7 Emily SAMUELSON / Todd GILLES USA
    5 8 Maia SHIBUTANI / Alex SHIBUTANI USA


    Hope this helps?

    Thanks Doris....yes, the list is up at the ISU site but for some reason (like I am a computer illitterate) when I copy and paste the names, unless I go to landscape view, things go wrong....
    I now have my cheat sheet...thanks as always for your help!

    I cut and paste from the ISU results list into an Excel spreadsheet. You can adjust the size and margins of the spreadsheet and print it any way you want.
