Due to the Covid-19 pandemic related travel and entry restrictions, the ISU Council had decided not to apply the usual ISU Junior Grand Prix ranking system as basis for the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final qualification system (please refer to ISU Communication 2418).

If I am reading this correctly, Ilia Malinin, Wesley Chiu and Kiril Sarnovskiy in the men's final.

Here I am honest, I do care about these skaters, and I don't know about the process, but I like the results:)

Russian fed should buy approved vaccines for their skaters assigned to GP France asap to avoid losing GPF spots, still time.

My understanding of the issue with Russians going to France is that its not due to vaccine status of individuals but that Russia's cases are at a level that if a Russian travels to France regardless of their vaccination status they have to quarantine

So even if say Shcherbakova is vaccinated using Moderna vaccine, because she's from Russia she would have to quarantine for 7 days upon arriving in France.

I guess the question for that would be how can the Russians workaround it for GP France: how detrimental would it really be to be off ice for 7 days then have 2-3 days practice before competition or would Russians assigned to GP France have the option of going to say Sweden where there isn't a quarantine restriction for x amount of days and then because they aren't coming from Russia would be able to travel to France and not quarantine?

1. Chikmareva & Ianchenkov (2 gold)
2. Mukhortova & Evgenyev (1 gold, potential for a second)
3. TBD
4. TBD

170.46+169.80 = 340.26 - Petushkova & Malikov
162.14+158.82 = 320.96 - Kostiukovich & Briukhanov

183.87 + JGP Linz = ? - Khabibullina & Knyazhuk
168.26 + JGP Linz = ? - Safina & Berulava

Four of the five highest first-event scores among non-qualifying skaters belong to teams competing at JGP Linz this week. If the Browns repeat as gold medalists (which honestly is a bit of a long-shot, I think), then the sixth qualifier would likely be drawn from amongst them:
165.14 - Leonteva & Gorelkin
160.23 - Ling & Wein
157.39 - Bashynska & Beaumont
155.98 - Tyutyunina & Shustitskiy

Samodelkina is pretty much out of the final.. Muravieva has the best chance because she has the highest score and is a competitor in Austria, if she or Isabeau wins either way she gets the spot, she is against Zinina directly for the spot (or maybe some other surprise)
oh if by total score they mean both events then there is some kind of marginal factor and what I said is wrong :oops:

If by total score they mean both events, and if Isabeau wins, Muravieva and Zinina will need to score less than 199.81 and 201.86 respectively in order for Samodelkina to be in the final. For Zinina to win over Muravieva there needs to be a gap of more than 2.05 points in favor of Zinina.

I would hope that no one would seriously suggest that these events should not count at all. The athletes who competed at these stages took on all the other competitors present, and their wins certainly should count for something!
No, wins where strongest skaters were segregated and blocked from participation should not count. Thorngren or Levito would never win 1st places in the presence of Russian Ladies. This gold is fake.
