    Now there is a question over whether Polina Edmunds' junior scores can be used to meet Olympic qualifying minimum. USFS officials unsure

    I can't remember a time when someone might not make the Olympic team even thought they made the top 3 and the skaters in question weren't injured. And it could happen in two disciplines. Crazy.

    Polina's scores should qualify. Nikol Gosviani used Junior scores for Euros last year.

    From ISU Communication No. 81, "Entries ISU Championships 2014" (incl. the Olympics)
    The Minimum Total Technical Score (not including Component Scores) is a Technical Score and must have been reached in an ISU recognized International Competition (as per Article 38, paragraph 7 of the ISU Constitution and Rule 107, paragraphs 1 to 9 of the ISU General Regulations) during the ongoing or immediately preceding season in both segments, Short Program/Short Dance and Free Skating/Free Dance (See ISU Special Regulations Single & Pair Skating Ice Dance 2012, Rule 378, paragraph 3).

    Emphasis added.

    p.s. Hi, dardar. Nice to see you posting over here.

    Phil Hersh being totally clueless as usual. Now there's a surprise.

    How do people like this become published journalists?

    By staying on top of an evolving story.
    USFS, if anyone, apparently was clueless on the question of whether Edmunds is eligible.
    Hersh was tweeting the changing outlook at USFS (as opposed to his own outlook). Not fair to blame the messenger.

    Looks like Ashley will be selected pursuant to Article 2.1 on pg 11.

    The TES for the Olympic Games is 20.00 for the short program and 36.00 for the free skate.

    I went to the ISU site and checked out Edmunds' season best scores. Edmunds earned a TES of 33.35 for her short program at the 2013 ISU JGP Mexico Cup. She earned a TES of 61.82 for her free skate in the same competition.

    She has qualified easily for Sochi in both instances.
