    Mirai Has been given the NHK spot!

    I guess Shelepin has officially withdrawn after all??

    I can't find an official announcement but if you got to the ISU site, click on Entries Ladies 2012/2013 (all 6 events) and open the PDF it shows her as a new entry and Shelepin out.

    I am over the moon. I will try to find a link/announcement to share (though I suspect someone will beat me to it).

    I'm really glad Mirai will be going! Her short progam is wonderful and I think her long program just needs more mileage and this is a great opportunity, Go Mirai!!

    POlina Shelepen - the russian girl. I am hedging my bet and no one really knows that Alissa is holding out even though it seems unlikely she will be that healthy (even if she does skate).

    I'm overjoyed for Mirai! I'm happy we'll get to see her in one more GP before Nationals. I'm sorry her spot came due to another's injury withdrawal and I wish Polina a speedy recovery!

    Mirai has a chance now to improve on her CoC marks. Hopefully she'll clean up those UR's/two foot landings!

    Go Mirai... the girl should be given as many chances as she deserve, and she certainly deserve more than 1 GP event this season. Hope NHK ends up great for her!!
    Indeed. And for anyone to say that Mirai and Caroline are not great spinners?? And at her best Mirai is right up there with the best of them. She's only 19 and still has a lot of time to improve. 'Nuff said. Next.

    'Who cares? ' I care! GO MIRAI!!
