    Lightbulb Ladies Grand Prix Speculation

    You all know I've been waiting to post this thread ever since the men's one was posted... I do love me the ladies!!!

    So seeded for 2 spots we have

    Yuna KIM
    Carolina KOSTNER
    Mao ASADA
    Kanako MURAKAMI
    Ashley WAGNER
    Gracie GOLD

    Zijun LI (woo hoo!)
    Kaetlyn OSMOND
    Adelina SOTNIKOVA
    Elizaveta TUKTAMYSHEVA
    Mae Berenice MEITE
    Akiko SUZUKI (whew!)

    I kind of am not sure if Yuna Kim will take a pass or not. Ditto Carolina. So this is between 20 and 24 spots taken.

    Who else is likely to nab two spots?? Skaters in the top 24 World Standings not on the above list include Korpi, Helgesson (X2), Lipntskaia, Czisny (yup, even after the update), Li, Meite, Makarova, Leonova, Gedevainishvili, Nagasu, Gao, Lacoste, and Zawadzki. So that is 14 more spots taken for a total of 34 to 38 spots taken (less if some, like Makarova, are done or choose not to compete).

    I'm gonna let someone else tell me who has the 24 highest scores because these don't seem to be updated and I am not up on this stuff the way, say, Mrs P. is

    What about seasons best list? Top 24 can all get a GP right? There are lots of juniors on that list so I guess a lot depends on who moves up, like Wang, Miller, Radionova, Pogorilaya, Miyahara...

    I did a quick calculation of the Ladies World Rankings after Worlds 2013 with the old data scrubbed.
    Here are the top 24 (Note: this may change slightly after the last 4 International Bs of the year [Printemps, Mladost, Triglav and Gardena]). Names in bold are already guaranteed 2 events because they finished top 12 at Worlds.

    1 Carolina KOSTNER
    2 Mao ASADA
    3 Akiko SUZUKI
    4 Ashley WAGNER

    5 Viktoria HELGESSON
    6 Adelina SOTNIKOVA
    7 Kanako MURAKAMI
    8 Elizaveta TUKTAMYSHEVA

    9 Alena LEONOVA
    10 Zijun LI
    11 Julia LIPNITSKAIA
    12 Mae Berenice MEITE
    13 Kiira KORPI
    14 Gracie GOLD
    15 Agnes ZAWADZKI
    16 Christina GAO
    17 Valentina MARCHEI
    18 Elene GEDEVANISHVILI
    19 Joshi HELGESSON
    20 Amelie LACOSTE
    21 Polina KOROBEYNIKOVA
    22 Yuna KIM
    23 Mirai NAGASU
    24 Elena GLEBOVA


    Alissa Czisny is no longer in the top 24. She had no scores from this season, the 2011-2012 scores were reduced to 70%, and the 2010-2011 scores were removed.

    The top 24 Seasons Best list. Names in bold are top 12 at Worlds. Note that this list may change slightly after World Team Trophy, as scores there are eligible for the SB list.

    1 218.31 Yu-Na KIM
    2 205.45 Mao ASADA
    3 198.89 Carolina KOSTNER
    4 193.99 Adelina SOTNIKOVA
    5 190.63 Ashley WAGNER
    6 190.08 Akiko SUZUKI
    7 189.73 Kanako MURAKAMI
    8 188.85 Elizaveta TUKTAMYSHEVA
    9 184.25 Gracie GOLD
    10 183.85 Zijun LI

    11 182.86 Elena RADIONOVA
    12 179.31 Julia LIPNITSKAIA
    13 177.19 Kiira KORPI
    14 176.82 Kaetlyn OSMOND
    15 176.68 Mirai NAGASU
    16 176.28 Christina GAO
    17 171.06 Valentina MARCHEI
    18 168.41 Hannah MILLER
    19 167.40 Anna POGORILAYA
    20 166.61 Agnes ZAWADZKI
    21 165.03 Mae Berenice MEITE
    22 162.65 Angela WANG
    23 161.65 Satoko MIYAHARA
    24 160.52 Elene GEDEVANISHVILI

    So I know I really should know the rules better (as my original post proves), but am I correct that if you have a spot both on the top 24 WR and top 24 SB list you are nonetheless only guaranteed one GP spot? Or does that mean you have 2?

    The only skaters guaranteed two events are the top 12 at Worlds. Skaters who are top 24 on both lists have a better shot at getting two, but it's not guaranteed. That's what happened when they cut back the singles event from 12 to 10, and dance from 10 to 8.

    Last season, there were a few skaters who weren't top 24 on either list who got invitations, and some who were on both lists who got just one.

    That's what I understood/thought. Thank you!
