If juniors works like seniors, and I believe it does, whether a team from China has to qualify depends on how the teams from China did in last year's Jr Worlds; if they did not all finish high enough, one or more of the Chinese teams will have to qualify in the following year. The team that has to qualify is the one with the lowest ISU determined standing.
This rule required Plushenko to skate the QR at Europeans-it has nothing to do with the team's skills and everything to do with how much they have been on the international scene in the last 3 years.
Kozuka had to qualify last year sky_fly20, and he was also at the GPF (and eventually won silver at Worlds). Kozuka had to qualify because Oda bombed worlds, so despite having three spots, only two of them were above 18th (the cut off), and Kozuka was the lowest ranking skater of the three. Also, if a country moves up a number (from 1 skater to 2 or two to 3... or 1 to three, but I don't know when that's happened), the second and/or third ranked skater have to qualify.

thanks, someone mentioned to me senior worlds was totally different fom junior worlds that had me confused
So happy for Nam Nguyen. He won the men's preliminaries by about 6 points, so he has qualified for the SP. I'm not sure how well he can place overall here, but I hope he has two great skates.
leave no stone unturned
I just saw the winner and he is very nice! Nam Nguyen is the little boy who skated also at Vancouver 2010 Gala?
