    I hope they do:

    Olympics:
    Gold
    Mirai
    Wagner

    Worlds:
    Gold
    Edmunds
    Wagner

    We'll see. If Mirai ends up with neither Olympics OR Worlds, I don't know WHAT I'm going to think. They're going to need to assign her to something.

    Ashley tearing up. So happy for her she made it this time.

    I feel bad for Mirai but I understand someone was likely to be left for Ashley.

    This is no longer a sport I'd recommend a parent
    starting a child in. What a set up. Why did they even bother letting Ashley skate
    if it was a done deal ? Friends have laughed re this as 'sport' , and now I'll
    never hear the end of it. Bye skating, I've followed you for years, but this seals the deal .

    I feel bad for Mirai, but she's been to the Olympics already and she isn't going to top her last showing (4th). I would've felt worse for Ashley if she was left off the team. I do hope they send Mirai to Worlds though.

    could I ask for a favor?
    Would anyone who saw the Press Conference be so kind and give us a little play-by-play of what happened?
    That would be nice! Thanks!
    Were there eager cameramen hunting Mirai Nagasu down like they did with Kozuka and Oda at the JN?

    I am devastated for Mirai.
    The USFSA gave criteria lists for their selection, the GP being the top criteria. Mirai medalled on the GP this year yet they choose Polina, who has skated one standout comp and never competed as a senior internationally. Seems like they followed their criterria to choose the pairs team (by omitting c/d) but didn't for the ladies.
    One of the journalists asked the president of the USFA who broke the news to Mirai and she said she didnt know. Yeah right. What a cop out. She's head of the whole organisation.
