*Jan 14th confirmed
: JSF announced that Satoko Miyahara will WD from 4CC, citing the reason of bad physical condition (she cancelled the performance in ice shows at the beginning of the year). Satoko said her condition is not good and it prevents her from proper preparation for 4CC. Her replacement at 4CC will be Yuhana Yokoi. She will also be excluded from the Sub list of Olympic Team.

They are saying that the committee has yet to meet to make their decision. So we might be waiting for awhile.

It seems taking longer than expected...the YT (announcement) meeting is not even starting yet?
The lady on TV was in front of the room where the committee would be meeting to determine the selections, and said they were not were not there yet. I assume they've started deliberations by now.

This waiting is killing me...
Could it be that they're still debating on Mana/Mai?

Wish they could just give the unused Pairs spot to ID so both teams can go. I think international judges favors Kana/Dai.

(added bonus... if you buy into the conspiracy of Marina & Igor doing strong political stuff behind the scenes for their respective dance teams)

Aw geez...I gotta go to work soon

I've decided unless they send Mana might as well send Rion and Hana (or maybe Ayumi) to JW since Rino hasn't regained her consistency yet.

(Yeah, I'm still stuck on the JW assignments. JGP spots are really important to me)

Sports reporter Jack Gallagher was tweeting yesterday that Kana/Dai would be selected according to his contacts. But we will soon see, I hope soon anyway.

This is just gossip. But assuming the same people are involved in all the decision making, that would be a good sign for Mai as well.
