ETA: I just checked and the 4CC dance line-up will be G/P , O/W and R/H. Very pleased for Kharis and Asher. If any of the medalists had opted for it , they would have been out of luck.
Having said that, I suppose it's a matter of opinion so I won't debate who is better since there's plenty of debate here as to which dance team skated better!
Btw, I haven't heard Meagan or Eric speak French either.
Have you had a chance to see this long interview in French with Paul from 2011? Looks very handsome in black - kind of foreshadows the colour for this year's FD.
For next season, to receive Grand Prix assignments on their own, both O/W and R/H will need to be in top 24 of world standings or have a top 24 season's best score. R/H will have a chance to earn a season's best at 4CC (Senior B scores don't count, except for Nebelhorn this year), and O/W will have another chance to improve on their Grand Prix score there. But if neither does so, the only option will be a host pick from Skate Canada -- that's what it came down to between P/I and R/H for this fall's GP based on how the 2012-13 season transpired (R/H didn't have a great SB and P/I didn't have a chance to earn one).
Thanks blue eyed birds... I seem to have had a total jumble of national and GP rules and practices floating in my brain..and yet , it seems so simple when you explain it.. ( I just remember felling gutted for both those teams going into the season.. and Skate Canada holding off and holding off before announcing their final host pick..
June 3 announcement? Skate Canada did hold off in at least one category, though, I seem to remember (men's? pairs?).
