Wang was replaced by Karen Chen.

Does anyone know whether Angela is injured?
Angela Wang at Broadmoor Open 2013, only SP - 2A, 3Lz+2T, fall in footwork, 1F (info from Sylvia's site)
How skated Karen Chen - we all know. Glacier Falls Final - 119.29 (FS), Group A - 179.39 (SP+FS) (3Lz+3T, 3F, 2A+3T, 3Lz, 3Lo, 2A, 3S+2T in FS), Chesapeake Open SP - 61.34 (source of info the same)
It is, as for me, enough reason to give Karen chance to compete with Medvedeva and Sakhanovich. It will be real competition.
Wang in state as above can't compete with them. But may have a chance later in better state.
Broadmoor is one of the earliest summer competitions, so it isn't quite fair to compare a program skated in late June with a program skated in early August. IIRC, Chen skated in some earlier competitions, and her performances were good but not quite as good as her earlier ones.
2013 Chesapeake Open June 20 - June 22, 2013 Karen Chen SP - 61.34

See the difference at late June.
And Chen's results at early Augist (Glacier Falls).
If Angela Wang does not show better results later than June - it is only her problem.
Rejoicing in the land of Kwan
Makes sense. She has two lovely programs and she backed both up with excellent skating. I figured there would be some shuffling to get her in.

I'm not sure how I feel about Angela getting replaced by Karen. Something about it just does not seem fair. Angela does not get many opportunities. How are Yasmin's stats?
Why didn't they take her spot and give it to Karen. I feel sad for Angela. Some skaters get shot after shot and others get nothing.
Maybe USFSA is making dumb moves but maybe they know something we don't? Maybe Angela is having injury issues or something like that?

I.e. changed Sakhanovich by Sotskova.

because Sakhanovich isnt ready ( she looked bad in the test skate ) they will move her to a later JGP event

Thanks! so excited for this event! :D
Tarasenko Is certainly getting a lot of chances to establish himself.

She has a Main Entry at JGP III Kosice.
