    I dunno why they don't just give the men's spot to Rogozine. I don't think Balde's going to do any better.

    Please tell me they're just going to give the spot to Rogozine and not make him skate off against Balde again or something! Rogozine is clearly the better choice!

    Skate Canada names world team

    Skate Canada tweeted a couple hours ago, that Rogozine has been added to the World team. Ice Dance is still open, likely awaiting news from W/P.

    They gave the spot to him, but had the skate-off to do it. Rogozine won two of two.

    From the tweet that was given from Ryan Piette (spelling all messed up), the W&P announcement should be fairly soon.

    Wow.. That really shows Skate Canada are hell bent against him. He has beaten Balde at Nationals, he has beaten him by a massive margin at 4CC and now he needed to prove he is better yet again?

    I thought FCC was the skate off. Was there another?

    ImaginaryPogue wrote they had the skate-off to do it. It was done. He won both times.

    News

    New thread re Weaver/Poje's official addition to the World team today (Feb 15).

    As mentioned there, Skate Canada's wording leaves me wondering whether W/P still will not receive final-final-final approval to compete in London until closer to Worlds.

    Sorry, I meant that they had a skate off at Nationals: Rogozine won. And they had a skate off at 4CC. Rogozine won.

    If Balde had beaten Rogozine at Nationals but the other way around occured at 4CC, I think Balde would've gotten it (the minimums were already lowered by 4CC, so he'd already had them).

    Balde's and Rogozine's scores at Nationals were very close as I recall. The situation was similar to Phaneuf and LaCoste last year when Skate Canada waited till after 4cc to make a decision.

    Yeah, and I think they definitely made the wrong decision last year to wait until 4CC. It made a lot more sense this year with Rogozine and Balde, actually.
