I thought :PHI skier has qualified after today's race, but apparently he now has 140.05 points. :facepalm:

 

Not that good for someone who gets a lot of DNFs..

Klaus Jungbluth Rodriguez of Ecuador :ECU is in Termas de Chillan at the moment, so he'll participate in the races starting Sunday :) 

 

I asked Bruna about who is present there and apart from the Brazilians, it looks like he is the only one for now (I'm fairly certain Argentina and Chile will have a team there, but no word on Venezuela or Colombia).

The Fis will give him a quota. IIRC both Venezuela and South Africa failed to get under 140 (just barely) but still got a quota.

Dominican Republic :DOM just registered an Alpine skiier. Interesting...

I wonder if this is him! Dominican composer with the same name apparently (maybe he took some advice from Vanessa Mae :lol:)...

Oh, god, I think it is. He is in fact Dominica-Republican... :d

Would be interesting to see a battle of :DOM vs :DMA. Shame they wouldn't be in the same sport.

I wonder if we are eventually going to have a whole orchestra from exotic nations... So far it's a violinist and a composer. :p

Bruna plays the guitar, although that's not really an orchestra kind of instrument :p

The Jordanian :JOR federation has said:

 

Hope all is well and thanks for your email. Indeed we currently have a skier (Suhail Azzam) working on qualification for Winter Olympic 2018, he's one of the 2 Jordanian athletes who participated in the Sapporo Asian Winter Games.
Jordan is also in the process of registering with FIS (Skiing International Federation). I have cc'd members of our committee for winter sports, media team and Suhail himself on this email so you can get more information.
 
He has been dedicated to training for the last month and a half and should be training for another 2 months until he starts competition in December. His main issue will be time as he will have to log a low enough FIS total before the deadline in January.
 
Jordan has never qualified for non-exibition Winter Olympic sport, so this gives him an edge and with no others from Jordan attempting to qualify if he improves slightly between now and competition he should have a 40-50% chance of qualification.
Will keep you updated once he completes his first competition.
 
Please note that we are also working to grow our scouting for Jordanians around the world who have the potential of participating in the Youth Olympic Games 2020 and Winter Olympics 2022. 
 
 

Best Regards,

 

Nasser Majali

Secretary General

Jordan Olympic Committee

 
So maybe alpine skiing. Based on the AWG though I'd say at least this year it's a long shot bid.
