    The Aussies: Brooklee Han, Brendan Kerry, and dancers O'Brien/Merriman.
    Zoltan Keleman.
    Michael Christian Martinez, I think he's already been confirmed by Phils Fed as their men's rep.
    Kemp & King (pairs), Reeds (dance)

    Mao Asada can pack her bag. There's no way she would be sitting at home.
    Her PCS at Nationals will guarantee at least top 3, even if she can only land 1 or 2 triples.
    Her world ranking is unreachable by any of her teammate.
    And she just won SA.

    Tomas Verner, Michal Brezina
    Florent Amodio, Brian Joubert (unless FFSG stops him)
    Denis Ten
    Javier Fernandez


    Ladies
    Yuna Kim
    Carolina Kostner, Valentina Marchei
    Zijun Li
    Elene Gedevanishvili

    Pairs
    Volosozhar/Trankov, Bazarova/Larionov
    Savchenko/Szolkowy
    Kemp/King
    Berton/Hotarek

    Ice Dance
    Davis/White
    Virtue/Moir
    Reed/Reed
    Pechalat/Bourzat

    Mao. Since the beginning of last season she has only failed to win one competition, so I don't see how three Japanese women would earn spots ahead of her. Ashley also, because there are not three better American women to bump her off and even if she bombs Nationals she is the only skater who can score high enough to be in a position to medal if any of the top 3 make errors.

    Some skaters will skate at the olys in spite of injury. So injury will not necessarily stop a skater competing.

    Depends on the injury as well as on the person. No one's going to go out there with a leg broken in two places, and no one's going out there if they've broken their neck either. Catastrophic events do happen.

    I think the point of this thread was to determine who's Olympic spot is safe, barring a catastrophic injury
