    There's more to bet on in China...

    Unless something changed this afternoon, Irina is also on the list for COC. That one will be quite an event! Can't wait. I'm holding off on my own bets until later, but for those of you "jumping in" right away, don't forget the current world champ!

    I'm still very skeptical that Kwan will do the G.P. Knowing her, this just isn't very likely. Of course it would be to her advantage to do so, but this is the same person who left her coach in an Olympic year. You just don't know what to expect from her.

    I don't think she'll do it. Really. Also Cohen, not sure if she'll do it as well (she skipped last year).

    The rest are fair game.

    Red Dog considerately posted this letter when it first came out; I just copied and pasted from Archives:

    Lausanne, November 10, 2004

    CIRCULAR LETTER No. 592 Total pages transmitted: 2

    To: ISU Members

    Entries/Withdrawals in ISU Events

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    The ISU Council is very concerned and disturbed by the recently created
    situation under which certain World top figure skaters are not competing in the
    ISU Events, in particular in the Grand Prix Series. Some have claimed serious
    injuries and others some other reasons, like need of rest and preparation for the
    ISU Championships.

    However, some of these skaters perform at the same time shows and/or
    participate or have announced participation in other international competitions
    during the period when the Grand Prix Series individual events and Final are
    held.

    All ISU Members know well that the ISU has concluded contracts with a
    number of TV companies for the coverage of the Grand Prix Series and Final.
    The ISU feels responsible to present top skaters at these Events. Not fulfilling
    this might result in reduction of the fees received by the ISU from current
    partners and in the future since it jeopardizes the credibility of the ISU and
    worsens the ISU position in negotiating future contracts.

    It was with due regards to all these aspects that the Members organizing the GP
    competitions have made contractual commitments to enter seeded skaters in
    accordance with article 2.1 of the GP Announcement and that the ISU Congress
    some years ago adopted an amendment to rule 125 paragraph 4 and to rule 136
    paragraph 6 of the ISU General Regulations under which :

    “Improper conduct by a skater includes refusal, for other than medical or

    other justifiable reason, to participate in the ISU Events in accordance with

    commitments established by the ISU and Members concerned.” (For

    confirmation of illness or injury see rule 104 paragraph 17).


    Under rule 104 paragraph 17 and also under the explicit article 11 of the GP
    Announcement an injury or illness must be evidenced by a certificate issued by
    a Medical Doctor and confirmed by the respective Member and/or the ISU
    Medical Advisor.

    Of course, in such a case the opinion and advice of the ISU Medical Advisor
    must be followed. If the injury requires, in the opinion of the Medical Advisor a
    rest from competitions and exhibitions (or sometimes even from practice), then
    the skater can not skate in exhibitions or other competitions.

    The ISU Council would like to remind all ISU Members that the obligation to
    give first priority to ISU Events, when entering or authorizing the participation
    of skaters in competitions and/or exhibitions, applies to the seeded skaters of
    both the Grand Prix individual events and the Final. The ISU Council
    therefore urgently asks all ISU Members with seeded skaters in the GP to take
    immediately all available measures in order to be able to comply with their
    commitments and to enter those skaters for the remaining GP Series
    Competitions and Final (if qualified).

    The Council has no other choice than to inform the ISU Members and
    through them the skaters that it will make immediate use of rule 125
    paragraph 4 ]and open disciplinary proceedings against those skaters who
    violate the ISU rules and file a Disciplinary Complaint with a request that
    the skaters be excluded under rule 125 paragraph 4 from participation in
    ISU Events (incl. Championships), International Competitions, Olympic
    Winter Games and exhibitions for an appropriate period of time.

    ISU Members violating their obligations might face financial penalties under
    article 17 paragraph 1, u) of the ISU Constitution. The Council hopes that all ISU Members and skaters will understand the serious aspects of the situation and will do their utmost to assist the ISU in avoiding inconveniences.

    With kind regards,

    Ottavio Cinquanta Fredi Schmid

    President General Secretary

    I love these assignments because....

    1. Angela and Ryan Jahnke both got an assignment

    2. MK got two GPs and only one of them is on North America. I think if she's seriously considering Torino, she WILL do both her events this year. If she's going to come back and do the GP, this is the season to do it and I really think that if she's healthy and ready, she will be there this time.

    3. Anabelle Langlois & Cody Hay will get to go to Skate Canada! I am very interested in seeing this team.

    4. AMANDA & MARK GOT SKATE CANADA!! Their first ever GP event and its even in my fave country! Hmmm, I've always wanted to visit Newfoundland, LOL

    5. Skate Canada has a rocked out roster that seriously does have me considering heading up there for a long weekend. Angela, Matt Savoie, Amanda & Mark, I like all three of the Canadian pairs teams, Shen & Zhao, Melissa & Denis, Johnny....its a fab lineup. I gotta start saving money like now, LOL

    I can't wait til the new season starts. Bring it on!

    Canada, Paris and COR have many super stars skating. I'm considering Canada, too. Is it in St.Johns?

    Actually, my surprise was that he opted to skate this year at all. I was initially surprised to see his name listed in an event, period. I figured it out later why he didn't get two events, before you pointed it out for me.................42

    I am so pumped for Skate America because we get all these cool skaters, and a German entry in each event! I would have liked Dobrin to be among the men but all I can do is hope they show him on TV. I am going netherless.

    Thanks Pairsfan! I sure hope Naomi & Peter WILL be competing, I've missed them so. And I'll be thrilled at the chance to Tiffany Steigler and her new partner.

    Mea Culpa. I did leave out Slutskaya from COC. She will indeed be in China and facing Michelle.

    I have 't read anyone's take on Evgeni. Is he skating any GPs and if not, Why?


    I was also thinking about MK. It might be possible that she will skate everything in sight this season as the last competitive skates. Kinda like Cher doing her 100 final performances

    I'm worried about Evgeni -- he's not listed at all by name (although, if he is well enough, he will probably get that "TBA" spot that I saw yesterday under CoR's mens event). I know he isn't seeded -- because he didn't compete at Worlds -- but , Shen and Zhao are listed -- even though they withdrew from Worlds due to injury also.

    Sasha skipped because she had a back injury.

    My guess is that he will be in the COR "TBA" spot if he's healthy. I suppose we won't know for sure for awhile though. S/Z's invite is in their home country....
