Wow, a sweep for both the US men and Russian ladies. The #3 US guy, Shotaro Omori, with a purely Japanese name, I hope he confuses the hell outta the Japanese men and judges when he moves to the senior level.

But at least 1 Canadian skater/team managed to land on the podium at all grand prix events. while the US were shut out at Skate Canada and Cup of China.

By my count, this is what the team trophy would look like based on the results of the 2013 worlds. I picked The top 9 countries plus Ukraine. I gave Japan, Ukraine and Spain a 3 point on the pairs sho

can't remember how many spots are at stake in London. the other olympic qualifier will be Nebelhorn Trophy later this year.

24 for singles, 19 for dance and 16 for pairs. Neulborn trophy will have 6 spots for singles, 5 for dance and 4 for pairs.

IMO figure skating has one of the worse qualification system of any sport, winter or summer.

i worried about osmond during the short since she skated really early. she was the ninth skater and practically had to wait. but skating early seems to have helped her. she's skating 23rd in the free skate then followed by Yu-Na. I hope Duhamel and Radford upsets the Russians later. They drew the first spot in the final flight while the Russians drew last.

I wouldn't go that far. It is straight-forward, consistent means that the best are there. No country is deep enough to send 4 medal contenders.

Exactly. Figure skating also happens to have a lot of universality.

Only 4 countries would qualify for the team trophy (ie have at least one qualified in each event): Canada, USA, Russia and France.

Close. In Vancouver it would have been six (add Italy and Germany).

That's not my objection. I think a limit of 3 per country is fine, and I also think that making sure only a few countries can actually send three skaters per event is also fine. Figure skating is also, unlike skiing, a sport where its really important to limit the number of entries to make sure everything is wrapped up in a sane amount of time.

What I have a problem with is how they decide which countries get a second or third entry. Essentially having one good skater can get you two or three entries. Having two good skaters can get you three entries. Whether or not you get three entries should be based on how good your third skater is. Whether or not you get two entries should be based on how good your second best skater is.

Its ridiculous that South Korea is about to get three entries in the women's event because of Kim Yu-na.

Though they need meet minimum standards for the Olympics and usually that is high up. Plus countries like Spain and Georgia rejected their second quota spot for the worlds (Georgia did that for the Olympics as well in 2010) for the WC. So will will likely see Korea sending 2 as opposed to 3.

The second athlete should still have to qualify her own quota spot.
