Winter Olympic Games 2018 Debuting, Coming Back, Returning and Missing Nations

Recommended Posts

The Ghanian skeleton rider was a few seconds back of his closest competitor in his first race, so it seems highly unlikely he qualifies (unless there is a drastic improvement).

This week he already improved a little bit compared to his first races earlier in the month, but yeah...not very likely :p

 

Doesn't matter though, since the very first beginning he has clearly said 2022 is his goal :)

:VIEVietnam in alpine skiing (they will also compete in snowboarding and figure skating at the 2017 AWG, but unlikely to qualify for 2018)

I love how this article shows so clearly that Vietnam has 0 "feeling" with alpine skiing...a truly exotic nation :d 

 

"I was ..th at the Competition Allgäuer Skiverband", it's like saying "I finished 5th at the FIS" :p

I see :GAM on the list of countries which are expected to compete in 2017 Winter Universiade. Anyone know something about athlete(s) from this country and his/her chances competing in Korea?

I think this is a mistake. Also the list of nations is down from the original amount and I beleive Gambia is a part of this list.

If the list is to believed and the athletes are decent this could mean either in 2018 or 2022 athletes from Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, UAE and Gambia debuting. Also Madagascar would have a shot at a return, and Uganda I guess would count as a debut because they have only participated in the winter Paralympics. Nice to see Nepal, South Africa, and Tajikistan there as well.
