    Is it confirmed that Melissa and Christopher are competing for the Philippines internationally? Do they have their Philippine citizenship? I would be so excited to see the Philippines represented in Sochi and even the GPF circuit and I know these to have the talent to achieve this. I heard it's easy for Fil-ams to attain dual citizenship. I'm so glad that there are so many talented Filipinos in skating. In addition to these two there is Amanda Evora and Jessica Calalang in pairs. Anyone else?

    Bulanhagui got her citizenship this fall, but can't represent the Philippines internationally until next season due to ISU rules. I don't think Caluza's ever competed internationally, but I don't know if he has citizenship yet.

    Chris received his citizenship this summer. Unlike Melissa he can go to 4cc because he never represented the US internationally.

    This. Chris is a friend of mine and has expressed to me a lot about wanting to compete for the Philippines because it's where his family is from and he wants a fair shot at competing internationally. From what I've seen on fb, he's really happy and content with how things are going so far . I'm wishing him the best of luck!

    Melissa cant go to Four Continents and Worlds this season, because she has to sit out 1 more year before she is eligible to represent the philippines at international competitions.
    Is it already decided who will go to Worlds for the Philippines this season?

    Does the second place finisher have a qualifying score at an international? If she doesn't, no one.

    I think Zhaira C. can go to worlds (I think she's old enough), Caluza can be sent to 4CC first to get a qualifying score

    You can't get a qualifying score for a Championship at a Championship, so if Zhaira or Caluza don't get one either at a European Senior B or Asia games in January, they won't be at 4CC or Worlds because 4CC is a continental championship event.
