  6. Haley Sales / Nikolas  Wamsteeker (70.00)
  7. Molly Lanaghan / Dmitre Razgulajevs (67.51)

Very close battles for the second spots in the men's single and the pairs event (and Messing is far from certain from being in the top two).


Biggest dissapointment of the day was Nguyen, who is retiring at the end of the season. He had a really bad fall on his 3A which completly ruined his program.


Very happy that Fournier-Beaudry / Sørensen, formerly of :DEN, will very likely finally make their Olympic debut. Also worth noting that Lauriault / Le Gac competed for :FRA at the 2018 Olympics.

Vanessa James is back competing for Canada? Geez, that's three countries she represented on international level now? And none of them dissolved like :URS  or :YUG:lol:

Ya, triple citizen ( :GBR:CAN:FRA ). Could have gotten a US passport too, she held a Green Card when she was younger and she actually learned to skate while she was living in the US.

:USA US Nationals, women's single

Mariah Bell, at the ripe old age of 25, won her first senior nationals. She is the oldest women to win in 95 years, and in all likelihood she will be the oldest American women to compete in women's single at the Olympics since 1928. Again, at the ancient age of 25.


Karen Chen finished second and is also virtually guaranteed a spot at the Olympics.


Isabeau Levito finished third, but is not age eligible for the Olympics.


Gabriella Izzo, in fourth, is the third highest ranked age-eligible competitor. The last spot on the Olympic team will likely come down to her or Alysa Liu.

She could have also competed for :BER if she wanted.

She would have had to establish a national federation though, as :BER isn’t associated with the ISU.

That's too bad... I thought anyone could get Canadian citizenship. :p


No Olympics for Deanna Stellato-Dudek, the fanciest of the fancy names. :(

It seems like her husband must be of Polish descent - Illinois where she comes from is full of Polish immigrants.
