From looking at the protocols that looks like a very good skate by S/K, it's a pity they didn't show that level at Euros. The levels could be improved one lift was level 2 and another a level 3. Impressvie by A/M, only together a short time and they are competing very well. I wonder is there any videos available on youtube
Out of curiosity, how did Kuzmich/Hockley get sent to this event when they finished 14th out of 15 teams at Canadian nationals in January?

Nm. I just found the answer. I will rephrase the question. How can a team skate at nationals and less than a month later be skating internationally for another country (and going to worlds)?
I guess Carol Lane and Scarborough are developing a history: Greece, US coming to canada to go to olympics, now two for Slovenia.

Well, you wouldn't expect the US or Canada to hold on to the 14th place couple
So if someother country will take them, and they have the minimum TES for whatever event (Worlds), off they go to skate for some other country.
Why not? Nationals aren't sanctioned by the ISU and competing there has no effect on your eligibility.

A release is only required if you represented one country at ISU-sanctioned international events and then want to represent another.
