Teams for ISU championships
I wonder who they will send in the ladies for 4CC ?
I would like to see this team for 4CC, I think it would be politically correct if we send everyone in the next ISU championships so,
I would suggest this :
4CC : Kaetlyn Osmond, Amélie Lacoste and Veronik Mallet
Junior Worlds : Gabrielle Daleman and Alaine Chartrand
Worlds championships : Kaetlyn Osmond
For the men, I think they should send the boys 3 to 5 at 4CC and the one who will have the minimum technical score for the sp and lp should go to Worlds championships. (And if more than 2 boys success the minimum technical score at 4CC, they should take the one who have earn the best ranking at nationals)
So here is the team that I would like to see:
4CC: Andrei Rogozine, Elladj Balde and Liam Firus
Junior Worlds: Nam Nguyen
Worlds championships: Patrick Chan, Kevin Reynolds and (one boys from 4CC)
What are your thought about that
Chatrand is too young for Senior competitions still?
I imagine Chan will pass on 4CC but Reynolds will definitely want to go. So the team will probably be Reynolds, Rogozine and Balde.
I think they should keep the third spot open and give it to whoever finishes higher in Sapporo (and Balde has to earn the minimum score as well).
I hope Orford/Williams get sent to 4CC.

Nam Nguyen, 14, Toronto, Ont.
Mitchell Gordon, 16, Vancouver, B.C.
Brittany Jones 16, Toronto, Ont. / Ian Beharry, 21, Guelph, Ont.
Margaret Purdy, 17, Strathroy, Ont. / Michael Marinaro, 20, Sarnia, Ont.
Hayleigh Bell, 16, Acton, Ont. / Alistair Sylvester, 18, Stratford, Ont.
Gabrielle Daleman, 15, Newmarket, Ont.
Alaine Chartrand, 16, Prescott, Ont.
Madeline Edwards, 16, Port Moody, B.C./ Zhao Kai Pang, 17, Burnaby, B.C.
Mackenzie Bent, 15, Uxbridge, Ont./ Garrett MacKeen, 18, Oshawa, Ont.
So it does look like they are waiting until 4CC to name the World team.
Interesting that no subs got named.
They pretty much have to. W/P might petition to get on, and they clearly need another option for the men.

There is no way Weaver & Poje would be ready in time for Worlds (even though I am sure if they were they would be given a bye in a heartbeat).

This way they will have a better idea who to nominate for the TBA slots at Skate Canada.
This is a good idea as it is likely one of these 3 ladies will be going to the Olympics ( assuming that Osmond finishes top 10 at worlds ). Also that ensures that all 3 get important ISU ranking points no matter who they choose to seniorize internationally.
Osmond has to finish in the top 12 at Worlds to secure that second spot, not the top 10.
