    Her 32 place in Season Best means good chance for second GP Event (by substitute) if first will be host-pick.

    All five will have 2 Events. Only Radionova may be sent by Federation to JGP, but is it almost impossible.



    Leonova will have 1 Event by Top24 of World Standing, 1 Event by Season Best (most probably).
    Six Ladies with two Events:
    Sotnikova
    Tuktamysheva
    Radionova
    Lipnitskaia
    Pogorilaya
    Leonova.

    Korobeynikova will have 1 Event by World Standing after season 2012/2013, she will be at Top24.

    Next Russian Ladies by Season Best are:
    28 - Makarova
    32 - Gosviani
    34 - Korobeynikova (2nd Event, most possible by Substitute)
    48 - Gerasimova (she probably will be at JGP)
    52 - Titushkina (JGP, not guaranteeb because of many good new Junior Ladies)
    54 - Zaseeva
    56 - Stavitskaia
    61 - Biryukova
    72 - Shershak.

    Agafonova has no Season Best this season so she can not have GP Events at all.
    Agree about Gosviani. Even with no SB, Agafonova could still be considered for host pick, yes? Not that she is all that likely to get it, the Fed seems to have dumped her a bit and she usually doesn't skate so well until later in the season.

    I hope Pogo will move up but I fear of her getting kept on JGP (or just getting 1 GP) in favor of Radionova. I really do not think Fed will keep Radionova on JGP. So anyways, 2 Russian ladies can compete at each GP with the exception of COR where there can be 3, so that means:

    5 GPs x 2 ladies = 10 spots
    1 GP x 3 ladies = 13 spots

    So if all 6 of Sotnikova, Tuktamysheva, Lipnitskaya, Radionova, Leonova, Pogorilaya get 2 events, that means Korobeynikova fills the last spot and no one else can compete on GP, so Gosviani doesn't get anything, not to mention others like Makarova, Biryukova, Shelepen. Unless I'm missing something. Can 3 Russian ladies compete at all events?

    No. May be not more than 3 particpiants of the same Fed at any GP Event. It is written in Announce, 2.2 (j).
    A maximum of three skaters/couples from the same Member may compete in the same discipline of any individual event of the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating.
    So may be up to 18 spots for skaters/couples from one Fed.

    This season were 3 Ladies from USA at Events 1 and 4. At Event 6 also would be 3 US Ladies if Alissa Czisny would not WD.
    And 3 Ladies from Russia were at Events 2, 4, 5.

    Are the scores of WTT counted as SB or only points for world rank?

It's about time he shows some senior talent and hopefully he's taking this seriously and is trying to redeem himself of his every competition since jrgpf being awful in some way or multiple ways! This should not be a show to him but serious stuff to show that he has actually improved from last year wtt and there's no evidence he has since jrgpf.

    Kovtun was the only skater who at Euro landed 4+3 combo twice - both in SP and FS. At Euro he was 5th and best of Russian skaters (Voronov 7th, Pluschenko WD).
    At Worlds in FS he landed two 4T (one in combo).
    So he is not so bad skater.

    Situation is even more interesting - both Kovtun and Menshov were 12th(i.e. last) at WTT - Kovtun at 2012, Menshov at 2009 (with score lower than Kovtun at 2012).

    I know kovtun is not bad. He just can not deliver at all in senior competitions. Like in worlds 2 quads and 2 3a with 3a in bonus but then the most spectacular collapse!! Euros sp was doomed by double axel. So you can see how he can't compete properly and wtt is an opportunity to do better with something being clean and marred by something dumb like 4 combos in a fs!
