    Grand Prix Series Entries And News

    http://www.isu.org/vsite/vnavsite/pa...v-list,00.html

    I'm sorry if there's already a thread for it. I couldn't find one :( Necessary information is being posted on The Edge, but I thought it would be nice to have a thread that generally covers the GP series.

    Evan Lysacek out of Skate America, Armin Mahbanoozadeh gets spot

    Coachless Ando pulls out of Grand Prix Series
    ;Miki's spots have been filled with Sophia Biryukova(COC) and Elena Glebova(TEB).

    Why TakaTran are crossed out from both Cups on sportcentric site (they are still on the list on the general ISU site though)? I couldn't find any info.

    There was a steam of a competition in Quebec a few weeks ago and Mervin had what appeared to be a large cast on his hand. They had to completely skip the twist. It might be that. :(

    This tweet refers to Takahashi needing to recover from something.

    Maia Shibutani ‏@MaiaShibutani
    Wishing a very speedy recovery to my friend, Narumi Takahashi. Will really miss seeing her and @skate_moivo at NHK Trophy!

    Never mind! It's Narumi, not Mervin. Tatjana Flade tweeted that she's recovering from a shoulder injury.

    Takahashi/Tran out of GP -- confirmed by his tweets

    Confirmation from Mervin Tran ‏@skate_moivo:

    Sorry to announce that Narumi and I will not be doing the Grand Prix series due to a shoulder operation that Narumi badly needs.

    (emphasis added)

    Unfortunately it will be 3 months of recovery before rehab. Fortunately at 20 and 22 years old, we have time.

    ETA, the always-witty Tran continues:
    I will now sign off with a modified quote from a former Governor of California, "We'll be back"

    Yankowskas/Reagan have withdrawn from Cup of China

    (10/25/12) - Caitlin Yankowskas & Joshua Reagan have withdrawn from 2012 Cup of China due to injury. Reagan sustained a rib injury in practice. The injury is not expected to interfere with their assignment to 2012 NHK Trophy, which is set for Nov. 23-25, in Miyagi, Japan.

    The duo, who announced their partnership in April, was set to make their competitive debut next weekend in Shanghai.
