    He already had the SP score and just made the LP today so he's good to go. Justus Strid qualified too.

    I am pretty sure P/T will be competing, even with unrecovered injuries, as long as competing at Worlds does not worsen the injuries. Even without the single jumps, they will still score much higher than any other Chinese team. So having one team as substitute is reasonable. Z/W are simply too far away to be top contenders: from the FCC performances, it looks like they have not learned how to do singles yet.

    Thanks for correcting me on that. Awesome news!

    If you only sent people to Worlds if they could be a top contender, we'd have something like 6 skaters/teams entered. Also, recall how Pang/Tong looked in their first Worlds performances.

    Again Chinese Federation being ridiculous. I also think P/T and S/H will withdraw. Why not give other teams a chance?
    Don't you think song is going to be hurt if they send yan? After all, he is the one who won nationals. And song is definitely capable of earning 2 spots for china even though yan looks like the better bet now. Yan withdrawing junior worlds shows chinese fed does consider sending him. That still may happen.

    It is ridiculous to give other teams a chance now. Who can possibly earn 3 spots for china except them?

    I guess that means France is only sending two men to Worlds instead of three. Just like the French federation---their heads are somewhere up their you-know-what.

    Pang/Tong and Sui/Han might withdraw so they should have alternates ready just in case.

    Besseghier should get to go I agree. It really frustrates me when this sort of thing happens. Stupid French fed. Argh. And I guess Song is going to Worlds and that's a done deal. However, if he doesn't place top 10 I'm going to be very sad for Yan who I think would have significantly better odds for getting China 2 Olympic spots. Oh the questionable judgements of figure skating federations...they never stop do they? Gah.
