I only caught a little of the World's figure skating competition and never
heard the final results. I did hear that it was crucial that Michelle Kwan
finish in the top ten in order for the USA to be able to send a certain
number of skaters to Worlds next year. At the time I heard this, Michelle
was in eleventh place but had another skate to go. What was the final
outcome? Can someone fill me in?

I'm no expert, but saw it on TV too.  I think that what I heard was that
top (three?) finishers get to send 3 to the next Worlds from their
countries.  The next 7 (down to, and including 10th place) get to send
2.  Below that and the country gets to send only one.  Kwan moved up and
the US gets to send 2 to the next Worlds.

Michelle did finish in the top ten- eighth I believe.
