So, if I understand correctly, then Kana/Daisuke will go to sectionals, and then straight to Warsaw Cup?
Anyhow, I am relieved they got a Challenger. If Ayumi/Shingo look promising, I wouldn't mind them added to Golden Spin. But they've been together for not so long, so only Nationals for them is more likely I guess.

The actual schedule for Kana/Dai would be like this:

Eastern Sectional (Tokyo, Japan) Oct 28-31
GP-NHK (Tokyo, Japan) Nov 12-13
CS-Warsaw Cup (Poland) Nov 18-21

Oh, that is one tight schedule! I totally forgot about NHK. I wonder if they'll be able to compete in Warsaw with just 5 days to get there! O_O

Updating - announcement by JSF regarding sectional participation requirements (link in Japanese)

(In general)
Considering that many couples (both ice dance and pair) are training overseas, and partners who are of foreign nationalities may encounter the quarantine issues; for this season, the pair and ice dance couples will not be required to participate in the sectionals. In other words, the participation and entrance to sectionals will depend on the couples' decisions (and they can still advance to Nationals without taking part in the sectionals).

Ayumi and Shingo debuted their RD at "Championats de la sous-section Quebec" yesterday:



They're in 2nd with a score of 68.87. All of their elements were rated level 3 or 4 and they hit all 4 keypoints in the midnight blues!



Music:
Ariana Grande - Daydreamin'
Jon Batiste - I need you
Thanks for the music info (y)
I was surprised they are very solid in technique.
I'm not sure if the music selection fits the urban/street dance rhythm theme, though.

It's very impressive that they earned level 4 on Midnight Blues while Lauriault / Le Gac got only level 2.

Misato and Tim withdrew from Asian Open Trophy, which is no surprise as they are to compete at Skate America next week.

No, they are already seniors because she is already 20 years old.
Oh! So, actually, Komatsubara/Koleto have two main teams who are competing against them this season. I don't think T/N will be going, but certainly another team that has a good level of ice dancing from Japan.

I wonder why Utana Yoshida/Seiji Urano are not among the junior ice dance entries :unsure: They trained in the US during the summer, but I thought they were back in Japan.
