    Who would you like to see get a GP assignment?

    Currently, here is the entries for the 2012 Grand Prix of Figure Skating :

    Men: http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=3503
    Ladies: http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=3502
    Pairs: http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=3504
    Ice Dance: http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=3528

    * You can select the skaters of any country. I think that the important thing in this thread would be to see which skater, we would like to see getting an international competition. Because we believe that they deserve it for any reason

    Here are the skaters that I would like to see getting a GP assignment :

    Ladies : Kerstin Frank (Austria)
    Cynthia Phaneuf (Canada)
    Min Jeong Kwak (South Korea)
    Candice Didier (France)
    Elena Glebova (Estonia)
    Joelle Forte (USA)

    Men: Christopher Caluza (Philippines)
    Jeremy Ten (Canada)


    So, Which skater would you like to see getting a GP assignment ?

    Hurtado/Diaz. They had one last year and I'd love to see them get another this season.

    Elladj Balde and Jeremy Ten would be nice, too.

    Sorry to bother, but just a quick question.
    Why doesn't Jeremy Ten have an assignment?
    I thought members of the national team got an assignment and he finished third.
    Same with Balde (Except with fourth).
    Better yet, why did Rogozine get one?
    But to answer the thread:

    Jeremy Ten
    Armin Mahbanoozendeh
    Chris Caluza

    There are 3 open dance slots, and I'd like to see Ralph & Hill get a second slot, Chock & Bates get a second slot, and Zlobina & Sitnikov get a second slot. If someone cancels, I'd like to see Paul & Islam get one, or Hurtado & Diaz.

    I like to see teams be able to start the season with a chance at making the GPF!

    I think it is better for teams like P&I, and for that matter Hurtado & Diaz, to go to a Senior B & win. I don't think it does them that much good, to go to a GP and finish last, other than it qualifies them to go to Worlds, if they skate an adequate score.

    It's only my selfish self who would like to see them.

    I'm hoping IN will carry the Senior B from Salt Lake this year, BTW. I'd recommend P&I to compete there.

    But to answer the thread:
    GP spots are decided by season best score. After all the guaranteeds have their one/two spots, the federations chose based on the season's best. Balde and Ten were 91st and 78th on the season best list, which was too low. One or hte other can still get Skate Canada, which has an open spot.

    A-R-M-I-N. Although I'd be fine if he whipped everyone and won Nationals

    BTW, where did Armin place this years' Nationals? I though he'd get at least one entry for GP.
