    According to this press release, the USA ladies, men, and pairs TBA slots have been filled by Samantha Cesario, Adam Rippon, and Zhang/Bartholomay. That brings Rippon and Z/B to two assignments each!

    The dance TBA has not been assigned yet, I believe.

    Wow, Mens field is so DEEP. As the reigning Nats Champ, Max needs to prove himself here. But boy, there are the reigning Olympic Champion, 3 World Champions and 3 more World medalists to go head to head at the very first Grand Prix comp!

    Could someone pls explain why Zhang and Cesario were chosen over Hicks? Based on the results so far, I think she should have been selected. What's the criteria that usfsa uses? I'm not a huge fan of Hicks but I think they should have given her the opportunity to skate.

    SA seems to like to give one of their spots to a US Lady like Flatt or Zhang who are on the way out. Plus they want Ashley to have as little competition as possible so they give spots to weaker US skaters.

    I found out that there's another thread about this issue.. I also don't understand why the usfsa is sending Lam to Finlandia Trophy instead of Hicks! According to its website Lam is one of the "reserve team" skaters...

    Lam withdrew from Nationals last year though. So who knows where she would have been envelope-wise had she actually skated there.

    Really look forward to see how the ladies competition will play out. Ashely's chance of repeat her gold medal is not going to be easy (Mao, Radionova, Tuk).

    Per a poster on FSU, someone noted that Brian Joubert is no longer on the entry list for Skate America: http://www.isuresults.com/events/cat00028019.htm

    The competition is just a few days away...so I don't think there will be a replacement.

    ETA: USFS Tweet confirms:
    NEWS: 2007 World Champion Brian Joubert has withdrawn from #SA2013
