Does the team event make someone eligible for the gala?
So typically the top 3 finishers skate the gala but now with the team event you have skaters like Lipnitskaia, Gold and Wagner who won in the team event, finish off the individual podium. Are they going to skate in the gala/exhibition?
Gosh I'd really prefer not to see Jeremy in the gala on the basis of him having "earned" a medal. Gold probably will because I remember Surya coming in 4th in Lillihammer and doing an exo.

Plushenko had better not perform... healthy enough for a gala but too injured to compete, wouldn't go over well.
and... World Peace!
from what I understand Dai was invited to skate in the exhibition...
I thought top 5 of each discipline skated?
It would be nice to have Mao perform.
You must be right.

How nice to be talking about skating again rather than the judging.............
I was also wondering about this.
It would be nice to see some of the team medalists in the gala.
I so hope Mao will be able to perform in it! An encore one more time. I hope she is proud of her efforts, they were brilliant. She has much to be proud of, and I am sad this will be the last skate for her.
I'm also looking forward to seeing Yulia skate and exhibition and be able to go out on a high note for herself after struggling in the single event. I think we will see her. I would be surprised if she wasn't included. It will hopefully help her get some positivity back, after succumbing to such enormous pressure
I'd like to see Plushenko too, but I agree it would not be a good idea with the back injury issues. Also maybe considering the negative press he could get for it if he managed.
I'm also looking forward to seeing Pang and Tong. I felt for them just missing the podium. I'm glad they found their own love story. Beautiful.
Gotta Have Music
Bring it on! Will the exhibition be shown today or tomorrow?

Do we get to see a tweak? Yuna and Carolina's "Imagine" duet?
I would love to see Sotnikova's Swam Lake exhibition just because of the fabulous costume
So only figure skaters from this olympics or will Russian pull out some legends for exhibition? I wouldn't mind to see Yagudin one more time.
thanks for news brah

Now that the last discipline in FS has been completed I am sure we will
see a list of skaters who will perform in the Gala.
eta: Mao is in the Gala. Here is a Practice video.
