All Hail Queen Gracie
No, at least not yet. Semenenko needs to be first or second and score over 267.74 to overtake Jason. His PB is 258.45, so he needs clean skates at Rostelecom. Anything less and Jason is qualified, so it will be very interesting (and stressful) to see.
Yes! Mitchell Friess! My fractal and turtle loving man! So sorry for the ones who missed tech minimumsThe nine Senior Men who have qualified to Nats via Championship Series, if I am not mistaken:
Eric Sjoberg, Liam Kapeikis, Mitchell Friess, Ryan Dunk, Artur Dmitriev, Sebastien Payannet, Paul Yeung, Dinh Tran, William Hubbart
Top two Pacific section
Top one Midwestern section
- 205.73 FRIESS (Spokane); also competed in Henderson
(No one else from Midwestern met both tech minimums)
Top two Eastern section (excluding Ilia Malinin, who qualified for JGPF and has a bye to Nats)
- 197.66 DUNK (Norwood); also competed in (Leesburg)
- 189.24 DMITRIEV (Leesburg); withdrew from Alpharetta -- he is "Individual Member" who is listed as Eastern section
Next four in nation
- 193.12 PAYANNET (Henderson); also competed in Spokane
- 192.10 YEUNG (Spokane), also competed in Fort Wayne
- 189.07 TRAN (Spokane); withdrew from Henderson
- 184.60 HUBBART (Allen); also competed in Alpharetta
(I hope Hubbart is in , given that Friess is the only Midwestern man who achieved both tech minimums)
(Sad to say that ten men who competed in Championship Series missed at least one tech minimum , including Jordan Moeller, Emmanuel Savary, Eric Prober.)
Hanyu has withdrawn from both his GP events, so he definitely won't be competing in the final.I think Jason is very well making the final. Also, Yuzu is going.

Jason will have to wait and see what happens at Rostelecom, but with men's skating in general being unpredictable, he could stand a good chance of making it.
I am really sorry. That was dumb of me. I meant to say he isn't going.
