This and That
The draw for SECs is out. Alabama starts on bars and ends on vault. Florida starts on a bye before bars tomorrow.
Ottavio says he will wait until Monday to see if Japan can host Worlds in October, otherwise he'll go forward with a Worlds in April/May. How nice of the ISU President to really be thinking about the skaters who are currently stuck in limbo with regards to their training. Ottavio says he doesn't want to fight with Japan.
With Worlds in limbo, Yu-Na Kim has decided to PTFO and head back to South Korea. She will continue to train until Worlds are settled. If Ottavio prevents us from seeing Voir's Samba and/or Yu-Na's Arirang at full strength...
