    I'm going to disregard the troll bit because I'm not the one you need to address over that. But if you click the link that Tars provided, it's clear to see that it loads an entire album of the first act of SOI. And there's a link at the bottom of that page to see all the photos of ACT II as well. So, IDK what is loading for you, but for me and others its what I just described AKA not just photos of Madison Hubbell.

    The pictures right beneath Act I are Hubbell but right below that is Gracie in her Bang Bang performance.

    I'd say no. Wording from the USFS rulebook:

    https://www.usfigureskating.org/cont...2006-30-16.pdf

    2515 For all championship (senior) events, the following competitors will receive an automatic invitation to the same event;
    however, any such competitor or couple must enter to compete through the online registration process as described in
    rule 2401 and by the deadline of Sept. 1. Failure to do so will result in the competitor(s) not being entered nor allowed to
    compete at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships for the current season.
    A. A competitor or couple placing in the top five at last year’s U.S. Figure Skating Championships;
    B. A competitor or couple who won a medal at the most recent Olympic Winter Games;
    C. A competitor or couple who won a medal at the most recent World Championships.
    2517 If a senior competitor who did not place in the top five at the previous U.S. Figure Skating Championships earns a berth
    in the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final or the ISU Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final, the competitor will
    receive a bye to the current U.S. Figure Skating Championships only in the discipline in which they have earned the berth
    From the perspective of a team medal — did Gracie earn a berth by winning an Olympic medal in the discipline of ladies figure skating?

    Gracie only performed one program in the team event as well.

    You're probably right. It probably isn't the intent of the rule to have someone who won a team medal with little contribution (i.e. Jeremy Abbot) to get 4 byes to Nationals.
