ISU has announced the qualifying procedures. These are the standards, I think they are almost easier than the qualifying standards for Dutch championships :d

Olympic qualification ending with stages in Salt Lake and Calgary... So those looking to qualify by best times can easily ignore the first two stages. :evil:

All the events have hard qualification times than in 2014, except the women's 500.

Definitely, it's sort of weird there are no separate times for high or low altitude tracks, like I'm fairly sure there are for World Cup qualifying standards.

I just realized the alpine skiing qualification system effectively screws the smaller nations which qualify more than 2 athletes per games. For ex. Argentina, Chile, Australia among others are now limited at 2 per nation. This is definitely the way to grow the sport FIS :wall:

All qualification procedures for FIS sports now have some differents compare to the second post of this thread.

 

But the biggest are in ski jumping and nordic combined. FIS went back to the maximum 5 athletes per NOC for men instead of 4 and delete all about alternate athletes. In the nordic combined changes in the rules had finished a week ago. Now the qualification situation looks very different - Russia and the USA are losing their places in the nordic combined team event. Slovenia and Poland are taking this places instead.

Very weird that they changed it so late in the process.

 

TBH I'm not sure why there is a need for countries to have five athletes in those sports as long as injury replacements are available.

How can they make such a big change to qualification system just months before the Olympics? What a travesty!

The system with 4 athletes + 1 possible replacement for team events in case of injury looks better. Especially for the countries which are weaker in this sports because fifth athletes of the strong countries took some quotas. But FIS decided to change the system to worse. Just two months before the Olympics...
