An update on :TTO he is planning on racing in Iceland, but does not have access to wax facilities. Does anyone know any clubs that can help him out or any suggestions for him?

From another Isafjordur race page:   

http://www.fossavatn.com/en

“Our partner Craft Sport offers waxing services at their store, where you can leave your skis and have them done for you. The guesthouses usually try to provide some facilities for their guests who want to wax their skis themselves. There are waxing facilities at the parking behind Hotel Isafjordur, Silfurtorgi 2 where skiers can wax their own skis. You have to bring your own stuff though.”

:HKG Arabella Caroline Yili Ng has assured her qualification, adding Hong Kong to the list of participants. :)

 

She will also be their first ever winter athlete competing outside of short track.

We have 88 + Olympic Athlete from Russia (89) nations qualified so far.

 

These will qualify 

:NGR Nigeria

:JAM Jamaica

 

Should qualify:
:GHA Ghana

:TGA Tonga 

 

Just outside qualification and need better results 

:PAR Paraguay

:TJK Tajikistan

:VEN Venezuela (though her results are getting worse....)

:ALG Algeria 

 

Toss up on qualification

:TTO Trinidad and Tobago

:NEP Nepal 

 

???
:PRK North Korea 

 

If everyone above qualifies that would be 100! nations

Mark :TTO said just now that he had bad experiences with wax stores and needs a team to travel with. I asked Manikala‘s :NEP manager, he said he could help out... :p This will be interesting!

 

Else the skier from Costa Rica :CRC  told me he might try Alpine skiing for 2022. And I was talking to a skier from Venezuela :VEN but he tried to hit on me (yes, in that way :wacko:). That got awkward really fast. The end.

How looks situation now for every of these nations? I know that Jamaica is already qualified as their high place in ranking in womens bobsleigh and here is just one more race to end of qualifications (or no more already?), but what about others?

North Korea has indicated today they will probably send a team, and the IOC has said they where willing to give invitations to North Korean athletes that had not qualified, so one thinks they will probably be there.

 

But it's North Korea so who knows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

:NGR Nigeria

:JAM Jamaica

:GHA Ghana (also has an alpine skier)

:PRK North Korea
 

Just outside qualification and need better results 

:TJK Tajikistan (needs a couple good results to qualify)

:VEN Venezuela: no race results since last update, needs 2-3 good results

:NEP Nepal (needs a couple good results)

:TGA Tonga  1 more race needed... but he hasn't been close to hitting it after Project Bogota.

 

Unlikely:

:TTO Trinidad and Tobago

:ALG Algeria 

:PAR Paraguay (needs good results x5 to qualify... time is running out).

 

 

First 4 should qualify, I also predict Tajikistan, Nepal and Tonga to qualify. So 7 more nations would equal 96 countries.

This Mexican skier which will compete tomorrow too is already qualified?

 

Edit: In womens race :NEP Rai will compete :d
