  1. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Here. FIS has made a nice table for all of its sports.
  2. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    I remember when to qualify to the French swimming team you had to break the French record in some events. Canada has some additional standards, but usually it's to prevent "free qualification" due to easy qualification for some sports (sailing was a big one in 2016).
  3. Alpine Skiing at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Some nations only want athletes that will perform well (Netherlands) or that they feel they have a too easy path due to essentially free continental spots (New Zealand and South Africa). Money is usually the issue too, most sporting budgets are small and funding is sometimes based on how well athletes perform (so an athlete performing poorly may bring in less money than no one competing at all). Then there are the times where the qualified athlete is injured.
  4. For the ones I click that doesn't seem to be the case, though looking around that is true.
  5. I'm not sure if this was mentioned before... In the results portal can we have a latest replies section. It makes it easier to see if new results have been posted rather than going through individual sports.
  6. I like to imagine Scott holding up Tessa who is then holding the flag.
  7. Men's Ice Hockey Tournament at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    US can be a dark horse if Zapolski plays the tournament of his life. Canada is a solid team, but age is a factor, most of the team is over 30 years old. I'll wait until I see Sweden/Finland's team, but I imagine they may be the favourites against Canada/US.
  8. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Looks like the FEI has fixed its mistake. The North and South American teams are the same as I listed. They also confirm Iran, Qatar and United Arab Emirates will be placed into the Australasia team with Australia and New Zealand.
  9. Bobsleigh at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    The original nation can waive the waiting period for an athlete to compete for a different nation.
  10. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    If the Americas are split the qualified teams would be North America South America
  11. Summer Youth Olympic Games 2018

    Here are the Equestrian quotas. However the FEI seems to have forgotten that North and South America are suppose to be separate. They also forgot about Iraq receiving a tripartite spot, but this website has remembered. FEI Link Africa Americas Asia Australasia Europe
  12. Figure Skating at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

    Yeah those figure skating results suggest Canada can win 4-6 medals, which would be amazing, but I feel we would need a very good performance to even get 4.
  13. Winter Olympic Games 2018 News

    North Korea women aren't that much worse than South Korea in women's ice hockey. Their best players are likely better than South Korea's worst players at the very least. I'm still against the idea. Plus a Saudi Arabia and create quotas and give North Korea a (short track) speed skater or two if they really want to. Maybe an alpine/cross-country skiier if they have anyone.
  14. Some quick thoughts Ice Hockey At least one of Canada or the United States will win a medal in the men's ice hockey tournament A team from Group B will defeat a team from Group A in the quarterfinals of the women's ice hockey tournament Curling A team from Asia (China, Japan, South Korea) will medal in any curling event Canada will defend its gold medals in the men's and women's curling events. Luge A nation failing to win a medal in the individual events (singles and doubles) will medal in the team relay Bobsleigh At least one athlete will win two medals in bobsleigh Humphries (CAN) will win her third gold medal in two-women's bobsleigh Figure Skating Spain will win its first ever medal in figure skating No European nation will win gold in figure skating Overall Norway will finish first on the medal table The Netherlands will only win medals in speed skating Japan will finish higher than China on the medal table A nation will win six or more medals without winning gold South Korea will finish in the top five on the medal table I'll think of more
