    It will be interesting to see. I don't think any program given to her in the quad suited her. Adams programs seem to have a nice effect on her.

    On the topic of American ladies, Ashley and Polina have birthdays this week: Ashley on Friday, Polina on Sunday. May they both have a lot of fun and success in their 23rd and 16th years. And maybe a fun little SOI party

    What about Gao? Last year she took the year off from school to concentrate on the Olympics... Will she be around next season?

    I don't think she's made any announcements yet. She may decide to continue. Christina skated better when her attention was divided b/w skating and school (the 2012-2013 season). Last year when she focused solely on skating the results were not that great.

    If she decides to come back for another year, I think she should stick to the school-and-skate formula. It worked pretty well for her. Truth be told, I'm not sure how much farther she can go at this point. With all of the new talent coming up, I don't know exactly where she'll fit in or if the judges will even give her room to fit in. Like so many of the other US veterans, she's fighting against the tide of new girls entering the senior ranks.

    flutzy, thx for the informative list - covering all four disciplines .

    Pls forgive me for a tiny bit of nitpicking: although still the same envelope, you meant to cite Brown's placement at the Olympics, not at Worlds.

    I think it will be an interesting season for the US ladies! i want to see some girls without Grand Prix events to get senior b's so they get experience too. I love that we have 3 spots for worlds again and 3 seeded skaters for the GP

    You are so welcome- I figured all 4 disciplines was helpful just in the context of how many envelopes were being split between the various categories and seeing what money is falling back into the pool due to splits. And yes, of course you are right and I will edit.

    Bumping this thread to note USA GP assignments (in order of nationals placement)

    Gracie Gold (S1)- SA, NHK
    Polina Edmunds (S2) - COC, NHK
    Mirai Nagasu (S3) - SA, RC
    Ashley Wagner (S4) - SC, TEB
    Samantha Cesario (S5) - TEB
    Courtney Hicks (S6) - SC, TEB
    Christina Gao (S8) - COC, NHK
    Ashley Cain (S12) - COC
    Angela Wang (S15)- RC
    Vanessa Lam (S20) -RC

    No assignments for (out of those who are not retiring/sitting out AFAIK):
    Hannah Miller (S9)
    Leah Keiser (S10)
    Mariah Bell (S13)
    Yasmin Siraj (S16)
    Franchesca Chiera (S17)
    Caroline Zhang (S19)

    Some of them are likely to head back to JGP or get senior B's.

    Vanessa Lam is a surprise considering her poor results last season. Also surprised Samantha did not get two GP assignments.

    There is still a SA TBA. Samantha looks good to get that one I think, though they might wan to spread the wealth.

    Didn't Samantha have 2 last year?

    I was hoping Hannah Miller and Barbie Long would get one....

    Vanessa Lam getting a GP assignment is so out of the blue considering she's done nothing internationally in almost 3 years and had like one international competition last season. To top it off she finished next to last at Nationals. Not the kind of skater i would think would be deserving of a GP event while many better younger skaters are being left out.

    Yes, I really liked her as a Junior, but finishing after Zhang at Nationals is not exactly what you expect from a GP-level skater (with all due respect to Zhang, but we all know what her current skating level is like)

    Samantha had a great season and is credible as a Senior! Lam has never regained form after her injury. Is she in Boston for Harvard?
