I just wanted to confirm if the only way to qualify to CoRF is if they have competed in stages, I.e. they can qualify for Nationals via the Cup, but can’t qualify to CoRF if they got selected to Nationals via other means?

Not necessarily. When Evgenia and Liza had their skate off for 2019 Worlds, neither of them had competed in the Russian Cup events that season. That was kind of a unique circumstance, but I'm pretty sure GP skaters who did only one (or none) have competed in the Cup final before. I guess it's up to the Fed.

I don't know about the official regulations (and knowing RusFed they are interpreting regulations just the way it suits them anyway), but skaters get wild cards to the Cup of Russia Final all the time. Just of the top of my head, Erokhov in 2018/19 and 2019/20 (without attending a single other competition that season), Davis/Smolkin in 2020/21. I guess there are many other examples if you go back in time. Mozalev should definitely be able to compete at CoRF if he wants to, especially if a Worlds spot becomes vacant.

A quick search even suggests that members of the National Team may always participate in the Final if they choose to. The number of athletes also doesn't really seem to be limited, checking back to the 2016/17 season, I've found everything from 7 to 18 participants.

Oh! I totally forgot about this thing!

I wonder if the eligible Angels of Plush students will compete?

Ooh I am looking forward to the men's event! Hope the Moskvich boys turn up in full force. Alexei I am sort of expecting, but how about Ilya and Andrei A - does RCF clash with Junior Nationals at all?
No. JunNats end on Jan 22, Cup Final starts on Feb 23rd. So, no overlap at all. It’s JWC that starts on March 7th that is a bit close to when Cup ends (28th) and Juniors always skate last so…

Right, who needs the Olympics when we have the Cup of Russia Final one week later? :biggrin:
You're talking like there ever can be enough figure skating. ;) As someone who watched Ice Star live yeah, the principle of 'Mozalev skates, me watch', applies.
