You know, they really should send Evora & Ladwig to 4Cs as a consolation prize for screwing them over.....
World Team - As expected. Jenny very lucky.
4 Continents - Only Pairs and Dance. Why?
Junior Worlds - First rate team!!
This is weird. Why aren't Stiegler & Magerovsky listed as alternates for Worlds and 4CC? Is it because the USFSA wants to give them more time to develop, or (God forbid) because they're breaking up already? I really hope it's not the latter! I am very, very excited about this team. I've always loved Tiffany and it's exciting to see her blossoming as an ice dancer. I think she and Sergei could have a great future ahead of them!
The L.A. Times reported that Jenny would be going to both Worlds and the 4CCs.
I also don't get why there aren't any men/women listed. I know the "top tier" never goes, but it's usually a great experience for B level teams. B&A are top five in the world, and they are going, so I think some lesser ranked skaters would be in order. Maybe it was an error that none were included.
The medal winners have to decide whether or not they want to go to 4Cs first.
They get first choice. If Jenny goes and Michelle and Sasha skip it, that leaves two spots for the other ladies. I think Kimmie is only slated for JWs.
The same with the men.

I'm assuming that Kimmie isn't going to 4C's because of her not being old enough for Senior level international competitions(?) - essentially the same reason that she can't compete at Sr World's.
Where is Bebe in all this?
I hope Sean Rogers go if the top 3 decline. He is our up and coming Senior.
They should have sent Bebe instead of Jenny to 4CC. The international exposure would have been good for her.
They still haven't named any U.S. ladies for 4CC????? That's strange since they've already named the other disciplines. I'm having this hope that Michelle will go, farfetched it may be.

According to A.H.Black (posted elsewhere), Sergei Magerovskiy has not yet been released by the Russian Federation and will not be able to ask for a release until October.
Yes, Meissner is too young for 4 Continents as well as Worlds. I think there's still a chance that Bebe Liang might be assigned to 4CC and that she may choose to compete there over Jr. Worlds (the solo jump in the Jr. short program this year is double or triple loop and she hasn't included any loops in her programs for the past 2 years due to her injury).
The 4CC singles assignments will eventually be published at:
That's odd. I thought the "sit out" period was only 1 year, and at least last year Sergei competed in the US with his wife. I wonder why the sit-out hasn't thus expired automatically.Originally Posted by Sylvia
