Nagasu has recently tweeted that she's been training by herself, but not doing her programs. So I doubt that USFS will choose her for WTT.
this was my response then. It looked to me like the skaters had fun and got some nice prize money in a low pressure-situation. IIRC, at least one or two French skaters spoke earlier this season about how they hoped to qualify for it again.
Actually, on recalling that this event is rescheduled from last year after having been cancelled due to the earthquake, I think there should be a lot of joy this year, especially after Japan did so well at Worlds (apart from poor Mao). Please excuse me if this is somewhere else but does anyone know if it will be viewable live outside Japan? There's nothing on IN or isu.org as far as I can see.
