ISU Grand Prix 2014

Following, dates of six next ISU Grand Prix qualifying rounds and Finals:

24/10 – 26/10 : Skate America (Hoffman Estates, Illinois, USA)
31/10 – 02/11 : Skate Canada (Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada)
07/11 – 09/11 : Cup of China (Shanghai, China)
14/11 – 16/11 : Rostelecom Cup (Moscow, Russia)
21/11 – 23/11 : Trophée Eric Bompard (Bordeaux, France)
28/11 – 30/11 : NHK Trophy (Osaka, Japan)

11/12-14/12 : Grand Prix Final (Barcelona, Spain)

Entries parameters should be the same of previous season: so, a total of 60 competitors should be chosen reckoning the last Worlds table.
According to this, and considering the likely default of Kostner, Kim, Asada and Suzuki, these are the only athletes who’ll take part for sure in two events:

Lipnitskaia (RUS), Pogorilaya (RUS), Gold (USA), Wagner (USA), Edmunds (USA), Park (KOR), Murakami (JPN), Osmond (CAN), Weinzierl (GER), Daleman (CAN), Helgesson J. (SWE), Meite (FRA).

All others will be selected by Top 24 World Standing order and Top 24 Season Best order:

Sotnikova (RUS), Radionova (RUS), Marchei (ITA), Tuktamysheva (RUS), Imai (JPN), Li (CHN), Helgesson V. (SWE), Miyahara (JPN), Gao (USA), Zawadzki (USA), Hicks (USA), Korpi (FIN), Nagasu (USA), Leonova (RUS).

All of them, Kiira included, at the moment are still not sure to compete in two events,  but their odds are very high anyway.
