  1. So that explains the media reports that Nigeria qualified.

    Is that the case for all B division races or just the 5000/10000m?

    This is what the quota situation looks like after the second of four world cups. I exclude the time ranking for all events except the men's 10000m and the women's 5000m. Max number of athletes is 3 per event for the 500m, 1000m, 1500m and the 3000/5000m while it's 2 per event for the 5000/10000m and the mass start. A country can have up to ten skaters if they qualify in every event, otherwise the limit is eight. Women: 500m 1000m 1500m 3000m 5000m MS TP MAX 1 1 2 4 1 1 1 3 3 2 3 2 2 2 X 10 2 2 1 2 7 1 1 1 1 1 2 7 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 X 4 1 2 3 3 3 3 2 2 2 X 10 3 1 X 4 1 3 3 3 2 2 X 10 1 1 1 3 1 2 1 X 4 2 3 3 3 2 1 8 1 1 1 1 1 3 2 2 2 1 2 8 Men: 500m 1000m 1500m 5000m 10000m MS TP MAX 1 1 2 1 1 3 2 2 2 2 1 X 10 1 1 2 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 2 2 2 7 3 2 1 X 6 3 1 3 2 8 1 1 3 2 1 1 1 2 X 10 1 1 2 3 3 3 3 2 2 8 1 1 2 X 4 1 1 3 2 1 1 X 9 1 1 1 1 4 2 3 3 1 1 1 X 10 1 1 1 3 3 2 8

    Olympic time ranking for the women's 5000m and the men's 10000m (top 12, two per country): Women: Claudia Pechstein - 6:56.60 Ivanie Blondin - 6:57.34 Esmee Visser - 6:58.04 Martina Sáblíková - 6:59.95 Isabelle Weidemann - 7:00.82 Irene Schouten - 7:01.03 Natalia Voronia - 7:02.40 Anna Yurakova - 7:06.33 Nana Tagaki - 7:08.77 Misaki Oshigiri - 7:09.56 Marina Zueva - 7:11.39 Carlijn Schoutens - 7:11.45 Germany, Canada, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic are now guaranteed at least one quota each in the women's 5000m. Men: Sven Kramer - 12:50.97 Ted-Jan Bloemen - 12:52.64 Davide Ghiotto - 12:53.63 Jouke Hoogeveen - 12:56.62 Alexander Rumyantsev - 12:57.45 Nicola Tumolero - 13:02.11 Sverre Lunde Pedersen - 13:02.42 Patrick Beckert - 13:04.97 Peter Michael - 13:07.20 Moritz Geirseiter - 13:08.87 Seung-Hoon Lee - 13:09.26 Jordan Belchos - 13:10.30 The Netherlands is guaranteed two quotas (the maximum) in the men's 10000m. Canada and Italy are guaranteed at least one quota.
  5. Looks like is completely in the clear to qualify in women's short track, the women's 1000m didn't qualify allocate any new athlete quota so the total number of women's quota remains under 60.
  6. Beijing 2022 Olympic Sports Programme

    My thoughts: Ski Jumping Mixed Team Competition - I'd rather see them apply for a women's team competition or a women's large hill competition. ·Ladies’ Nordic Combined Individual Competition - whatever, if not in 2022 it will be in for 2026. It's absolutely necessary to do this for the sport to stay in the Olympics. Freestyle Ski Big Air Men’s and Ladies’ - uses existing athletes (from slopestyle) and venue (from snowboard big air) so why not? · Alpine Skiing Individual Parallel Event - I'm okay with this as long as they don't remove any of the existing event (that noise about getting rid of the Super G has got to stop). It makes for a good TV event TBH. · Freestyle Ski Aerials Mixed Team Event - meh, the format is stupid. · Snowboard Cross Team Event - I actually really like this event. · Snowboard Mixed Team Parallel Event - never seen this event. Seems like an odd format. · Snowboard Parallel Slalom - I think removing the parallel slalom was a mistake (it uses the same venue and athletes as the PGS) so I'd definitively bring that back. · Telemark Parallel Sprint and Team Parallel Sprint - no idea how popular Telemark skiing is in Europe.
  7. There where 14 non-relay qualifiers in the women's 1500m in Sochi and they where still four short of reaching the max total quota, while in Vancouver they had 15 non-relay qualifiers in the women's 1500m and they where seven short of reaching the max quota, so she's probably fine.

    That would be a lot of fun xD
  9. The problem Azerbaijan has is that whenever they develop their own athlete they go abroad to represent another country xD As for Bobsleigh, here is the quote from the document: "Selected pilots must have been participating and ranked in a minimum of 5 IBSF races on at least 3 different tracks in the period between 15 October 2016 and 14 January 2018. In addition the pilot must have been ranked in at least 3 of the 5 above mentioned races on a minimum of 2 different tracks during the 2017/2018 season by 14 January 2018 and must have been ranked among the top 50 in the Twoman and Four-man or Top 40 in the Women’s Bobsleigh in the IBSF Ranking List per event (IBSF Discipline Ranking List) of the season 2017/2018 by 14 January 2018." So maybe all you need is to have been in the top 40 at any point during the season?
  10. Winter Olympic Games 2018 Team Sizes

    Team event is done unless there are last minute switches in GP allocation (and some miracles). I don't think Australia (11th eligible team) has any mathematical shot at catching either South Korea or Israel.
  11. Worth remembering that the world cup ranking is not what is used for Olympic qualification. For Vancouver and Sochi the added points from two of the world cups (I believe the last two of the season, but I don't remember 100%) where used. For Pyeongchang while all four world cups are qualifying events only an athlete's / team's best three events count for each distance.

    Curling is actually not over, the last two men's and women's quotas are getting decided at a tournament in December.
  13. Speed Skating 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    The Netherlands will definitively get quotas, probably 3. Keep in mind on top of the 20 athletes qualified by world cup ranking there are 16 spots available for the best performers in Calgary and Salt Lake City via the time ranking, it's not that hard for a good speed skating nation to qualify three spots in the 500/1000/1500. The real question is if the Netherlands will send any 500m specialists or if they will simply use the 500m as a warm-up race. My guess is that they won't be sending any 500m specialists.

    I'll believe it when someone other than the Daily Mail says so.

    This is what the quota situation looks like after the first of four world cups, excluding the time ranking which ads 16 places for the 500m/1000m/1500m, 8 places for the 3000/5000m, 4 places for the 5000/10000m and 2 places for the team pursuit. Max number of athletes is 3 per event for the 500m, 1000m, 1500m and the 3000/5000m while it's 2 per event for the 5000/10000m and the mass start.
