    B/L 1st in FS, which is a joke, but congrats S/K on overall winning! I am happy!

    Totally out of control. Their scores were inflated though. That program should not have gotten 138.

    Is the third spot to be decided at Nationals or Europeans?

    Third spot is decided by federation. And 1st and 2nd spots based on Europeans.

    Per FSU on word about K/S:

The top two teams from Nationals go to Europeans, the third spot at Euros will be given to Volosozhar/Trankov.
    So V/T, S/K, and B/L to Euros and more than likely to the Olympics.

    Thanks. But I thought neither V&T nor K&S were going to Europeans?

    V/T are going that's why they skipped nationals. It was either nationals or Euros but not both.

    Argh thanks. I didn't know K&S are out of the Olympics.

    That means both B&L and S&K will make Sochi with V&T? That just makes this whole Nationals very unexciting! Glad I am only reading about this after the event.

    (still, I am glad the right team won Nationals)

    Not necessarily out, but Euros is a qualifying event to the Olympics and K/S wont be there. They haven't competed all season and its not like they are vastly superior to Russia's 3rd team S/K. Tough decisions but I hope S/K get to go to the Olympics.

    That's what the big stake was for me in this pair's event: determine who is the 2nd and who is the 3rd Russian pair. S/K have beaten B/L here. If they repeat that at Euros, the Russian Federation will have to accept they are above B/L.
    Then, I hope there could still be a test skate between Euros and Olympics to see if Kavaguti/Smirnov are fit enough to get the 3rd spot instead of B/L.
    Given all they went through to be able to go to Sochi, especially her giving up her Japanese Citizenship and all the crap she got about that, I really hope they can make the team.

    LOL - Thank you Sequinsgalore for this little gem of information!
    Larionov must really be used to her falling, since he took off after she had fallen, and still did a clean jump!

    Also, Stolbova/Klimov's FS is excellent as far as CH goes.
