    I believe Han Yan has the highest current-season SB of those athletes without a second event. It would have been great to see him as well.

    I would have liked to see Brendan at Skate America. I really love his short program, and he can do so much better than at SC. It's clear, IMO, that he can really compete with the other athletes on the GP on his own terms now.

    But he has been invited twice, very likely over other athletes that were ranked higher at the time. He had chances as an unknown athlete, and it is nice that Roman will have one as well.

    Brendan did have the chance to make an impact for the team at SC. Sigh. It just wasn't to be.

    The team event aspect makes this particular scenario especially tough; and to be honest, I think that pressure may have been part of what led to the rough outing at SC.

    Ultimately, however, I think Brendan, Kailani, and Alexandrovskaya & Windsor will all form the strongest Australian team ever to compete at the Olympics--even if it is not in the team event. They should be proud of that fact.

    not really selling Roman short... selling Brendan tall

    I had hopes for Australia in the team event that are now dashed. I don’t see anything amiss with being disappointed by that. But, with Brendan’s surprise coaching change, maybe more training time is a good thing for him.

    Okay, so here's something I didn't know when I had my rant. Brendan switched coaches to Morozov (erk) and is now based, for the moment, in Russia. Whoops.

    (Although, Brooklee as Official Team Australia Reporter gives me great joy.)

    Brooklee is not the "Official Team Australia Reporter" - she is interning at IFS as part of her studies to become a journalist.

    No doubt karne was just kidding around re Official Team Australia Reporter. So no worries.

    I can assure you that karne is well aware of Brooklee's ongoing IFS internship. Months ago, karne and I chatted via PM about Brooklee and her internship and how great her IFS articles have been.

    Without having seeing karne's post, I silently had had a similar (and light-hearted) reaction when I saw that Brooklee was the one who reported the news of Brendan's coaching change. I said to myself something along the lines of, "Good for Brooklee -- no one better than her to report the big news about her fellow Aussie."

    Well, there is a high level invite. And someone who can make the GPF fight a little more interesting. He likely can't make the final, but he could factor at SA.

    I'm wondering why they didn't invite another man to France. Glad to see Misha got his visa or else there would be only 10 men competing...
