  1. Update: Brazil have qualified in Men's Nordic Skiing in the final race of Stage 2 of the Nordic Skiing World Cup in Ukraine
  2. Great idea! But overall the pictograms are a bit unimaginative, could've been much better!
  3. Updated with Nordic Skiing Quota from the first few races of the season here For the rest of the Nordic Skiing season there are a few nations to watch for qualification, Brazil have been very close with multiple athletes, as have Italy. Kazakhstan's women have also been close to qualifying. Also outside chances for early qualification for Estonia, Netherlands, Spain, Argentina, Croatia and Hungary. The Nordic Skiing World Championships will be taking place in Finsterau, Germany from the 11th February. You can follow the results on the Results forum: Cross Country Skiing Biathlon

  5. Curling Teams for Winter Universiade 2017: Men's - Women's -
  6. Wheelchair Curling Quota here
  7. But only 4 nations are allowed to compete for the medals (:kaz)! They should've allowed a few more nations into the medal winning group to give others like Hong Kong a bit of a chance!
  8. You've got to love the determination of British Nordic Skiing teams!! Nearly as bad as our para biathletes who spend twice as long on the course as anyone's else, we do like to get our money's worth!!
  9. GREAT BRITAIN Team Size prediction for Winter Olympic Games 2018 PyeongChang Ski Sports Alpine Skiing (3-4) - 2 basic quota, plus potentially 2 quota for athletes ranked in the Top 30 (Dave Ryding Slalom, Alexandra Tilley Slalom or Giant Slalom) Likely athletes to qualify: Dave Ryding, Alexandra Tilley, Jack Gower/Charlie Raposo (for 2nd male spot) and Charlotte Guest (for 2nd female spot) Cross Country Skiing (4-6) - 2 basic quota, plus 2 quota for being ranked in top 300 (Andrew Musgrave 41st Distance, Andrew Young 10th Sprint, Annika Taylor 147th Sprint). Potentially 2 Top 30 points list quota (Young 10th, Musgrave 41st (even higher with new 12.71 points score from most recent WC moving him 22nd). There is a question over whether the BOA will accept all these quota, considering Musgrave and Young will have single handedly won them all and Callum Smith is the only other British male ranked inside the top 1000. Likely athletes to qualify: Andrew Musgrave, Andrew Young, Callum Smith, Annika Taylor, Sarah Hale and James Clugnet (potential 4th male spot) Ski Jumping (0) - Never say never - but gone are the days of Eddie the Eagle!! Nordic Combined (0) Freestyle Skiing (6-9) - AERIALS: Llyod Wallace on qualification borderline SKI CROSS: Emily Sarsfield on qualification borderline HALFPIPE: Tough ask but Molly Summerhays, Rowan Cheshire and Madison Rowlands can all qualify, Muuray Buchan on the borderline on the mens side SLOPESTYLE: James Woods should qualify, Isabel Atkin and Katie Summerhays should qualify as well, Anna Vincenti possibly. Snowboarding (5-7) - SBX: Zoe Gillings-Brier should qualify SLOPESTYLE/BIG AIR: Jamie Nicholls, Billy Morgan, Rowan Coultas fo the men and Katie Omerod and Aimee Fuller for the women. HALFPIPE: Outside chance for Ayla Thidling to qualify. Biathlon (1-2) - Probably 1 in each gender! Skating Sports Speed Skating (0) - Nope Short Track Speed Skating (4-10) - Potential for both genders to qualify a relay team. If not, then for the women Elise Christie and Charlotte Gilmartin should qualify, maybe too soon for Kathryn Thompson and Jennifer Pickering both born in 1996/7. On the Men's side without a relay 2 or 3 quota is possible and will be between Richard Shoebridge, Joshua Cheetham, Jack Whelbourne and Farrell Treacy. Figure Skating (2-3) - Chance for Phillip Harris to qualify in men's singles, his scores have consistently improved this season. Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland haven't competed this season due to Penny's injury but hopefully they can qualify in the Ice Dance. Sleigh Sports Luge (0-1) - Now we are competing on the Nations Cup and have the same training facilities/coaches as the skeleton program so by 2022 we should have a strong team. Skeleton (3-5) - The woman can qualify 3 athletes with Lizzie Yarnold, Laura Deas and Donna Creighton/Ashleigh Pittaway-Fay, but 2 at worse. The men will be between 1 (Dom Parsons) and 2 if anyone else can join him high up in the rankings. Bobsleigh (8-11) - Should qualify 2x4-man, 1-2x2-man and 1x2-woman. Team Sports Curling (12) - All teams should qualify Ice Hockey (0) - Already out Total Optimistic Prediction - (70) Total Pessimistic Prediction - (48) Total Realistic Prediction - (59)
  10. This idea is much better, trying to organise any game that needs 9 members from across the globe present at one time would be difficult
  11. Thank god in Britain we have a law that the Olympic Games must be shown live on free to air TV!
