    I think it's which events they are skating: Gracie 1 6 is Skate America (1) and NHK (6). The number is the order of the events.

    It just occurred to me Kexin Zhang has a GP slot (Cup of China). Has there been any more word on whether she is continuing?

    For those who missed it, discussion of her retiring was had here: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...n-Canada/page3

    Awesome! Let the speculation begin.

    I wonder who the TBD will be at SA? Prior to her announcing her intentions to sit out this season I'd have said Agnes Zawadzki, but now I'm not too sure. Maybe Samantha Cesario or Angela Wang? That way they'd both have two assignments...

    My early predictions:

    - Skate America: I'd say Gracie and Elena are the two main contenders in this field, with Mirai, Liza T and maybe So-Youn rounding out the top 5 in some order.
    - Skate Canada: Anna and Ashley should be the top two in some order. Courtney, Satoko and Kaetlyn should battle for the rest of the top 5.
    - Cup of China: As long as she's not suffering from any growing pains or anything, Julia should have this one in the bag. Polina, Kanako, Zijun and Liza T in the top 5.
    - Cup of Russia: I'd give it to Adelina under the condition she skates well; Anna could sneak in though. I'd expect them to be the top 2. Mirai, So-Youn and the 3rd TBD Russian in the top 5.
    - Trophee Bompard: Julia, Elena, Ashley...probably in that order. Courtney and Kaetlyn rounding off the top 5.
    - NHK: Good showdown for gold b/w Adelina and Gracie. Polina, Kanako and Satoko should be in the top 5.

    So strange not to see Mao listed at any of these events...first time since 2005 she hasn't participated in the GP.

    Looking like there will be some decent competitions this year. I think the only people who look like they might be a lock for a gold medal would be Gracie at SA and Julia in both of her events. Anna is a bit of a spoiler IMO. No guarantee Ashley can beat Anna, especially seeing as how Anna placed ahead of her at worlds. If Adelina skates well she'll easily beat Anna; if she doesn't, there's a good chance Anna can stack enough points to beat her.

    I still think the GPF will be Julia, Adelina, Anna, Elena, Gracie and probably Ashley.

    If Ashley Cain continues her solid summer comp streak, I think she will be to the top of the list for that TBD. 3Z-3L and a 2A-3Lo is some notable upgrades...

    I don't get why the age was raised to 15. If 14 year olds could compete it would make some of these fields look a lot better and let some rising stars get their feet wet instead of putting some girls out there who are basically C level.

    I think it's good to make them wait until they are 15 just like at Worlds and the Olympics. If they are that good they can wait another year and if puberty gets them well that's how it goes. I for one as glad not to see 4'7 65lbs little girls on the Senior GP.

    I much prefer LADIES on the GP-not prepubescent girls.

    It's unfair for a lady of 21 to compete with a string bean that hasn't hit puberty yet. I wouldn't mind an age of 16 and up.

    The 14 y/o's can do the JGP.

    I agree.

    I think it's good there is an age limit. If they are meant to skate with the ladies, they'll skate with the ladies. If their glory is only for their junior days then by the time they hit the GP and puberty catches up, it's clear that's as far as they're going to go.

    I think it's good for it to be consistent whether it be to increase the GP age or decrease Worlds/Olympics age. I wonder if the ISU will try to force countries, like Russia, that allow skaters to compete at Sr. Nationals at 12/13 years old. A couple of years Russia has had to send their 5th (2011) and 4th/7th (2012) finishers to Euros because the higher finishers weren't age eligible.

    I agree it stinks for the Russian girls (who this predominantly affects) because there are skaters that have absolutely dominated on the Junior circuit and would be holding them back/penalizing them for being really good at a young age. And several of the young skaters, example Lipnitskaia & Radionova, came in at 14 on the senior circuit and both held their own in their events winning medals (2 silver, 2 bronze). Though I wouldn't mind for them to be able to compete because the older skaters.
