I can't comment on the ladies because I am so biased for the Korean and Japanese skaters. Would love to see Korean nats. My wife and I rewatched Yuna's win for the 100th time at 2013 Worlds London Ontario yesterday. I was there but I love listening to Scotty narrate the free....after two jumping passes, he and his co announcer dont say anything...not a peep.....For me, That was the greatest skate of all time of any disipline I have ever seen, live or on TV, and I feel honored in seeing the Korean ladies such as I saw at SA Vegas. I don't care about the scores, I care about a performance that makes me feel. :)

The entries for Nats have been uploaded, I'll make a thread with the schedule and starting orders when I get home
Awesome! Looking forward to it. Love these events. When does this event take place so I can mark it in my calendar?

Not a fan of them sending Haein to Junior worlds, she’s unlikely to medal there although 4th-5th is possible and it will only lower her PCS I think in the long run. Haein has 4CC already and Ahsun or Minchae would be fine for Junior worlds.

I'm no big fan of Haein and my beloved Seoyoung going either, but KSU is going to KSU

When you say main vs. reserve team does this mean the main team is getting GP assignments next season?

Unless the reserve team gets funding I don't know how they stay motivated enough to continue training when they may not get assignments at all. Just curious.

It's a funding question, GP assignments are decided by the ISU and the hosting federation. Right now I can only say confidently that Young and Yelim will both get two next year. If Haein gets a personal best at 4CC or junior worlds (205+) then she will too. Eunsoo's world standing is going to drop a ton when 20-21 season is removed from the calculation so I'm not sure if she'll get any.

Next season Minchae, Ahsun, and Chaeyeon will all be senior eligible I believe but they don't have the scores or the rankings to guarantee GP. Best chance for them is to be assigned to an early-season challenger and score high enough to get on the substitute list like Rika in 18-19.

Wow! Not the Junior Worlds we thought. But, happy to see my favourite Haein Lee there and some with Wi. I like this team.

So this means that Eunsoo is still going to fight right ? She is not leaving the sport yet ? Bcs I personally think as long as she get rid of her mental block, she still has her place in the sport. No one is as shiny as her (well may be Marin & Aliona) but unlike Marin, Eunsoo is actually a talented jumper and unlike Aliona, Eunsoo has tight position on the air.

I can only hope, but my darling squirtle will do what's best for her and I will support her no matter what
