That's incorrect. Being a Jew is ethnicity, just like being a Dutch. Judaism is a religion.

That's nationality :p

A little bit shocked they didn't pick Ashley Wagner even though she finished 4th at the nationals - but, IMO, had a better record in international competitions.

 

In the men's side, the expected, even the exclusion of Ross Miner who was 2nd at nationals (but previous to that, didn't have so many good results). I was hoping for Jason Brown, but oh well...

Ross Miner deserved to get picked, even more so since Chen got picked over Wagner. Unfair.

Honestly, I understand why they picked Rippon, but Zhou over Miner? Probably they wanted someone younger?

Zhou is 17, Miner 26. That’s why they picked Vincent.

 

That and Zhou did well at nationals last year and the margin between them was small (2 points) even though Zhou had an off day.
