I have the same problem...Kovtun finished 4th and Gracie 5th Also, I understand that Verner is retiring, but what about Kozuka? He was 6th and he's at home.
If they invited some skaters almost without looking at the final results, it would have been nice to invite Nam.
I think Kozuka is one of five JPN slot.
Others are probably Murakami, Takahashi/Kihara, the Reeds.
Novice skater Wakaba Higuchi is also skating.
Wth is Elladj Balde doing there? Not to be mean, but even CBC can't be bothered with that guy. They showed footage of every Canadian skater except him lol. The Japanese people love Kevin, you'd think he'd be there instead.
