Hello.Check this information... 

http://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/01307e_06fd4487ed604d92a008d43acac52ad8.doc?dn=2016-07-31_Criterios_de_Selección_Olimpíadas_Pyeochang.doc

 

Chilean Qualification Criteria: 

D)   "If there is more than one athlete that meets these criteria the selection would then be based on the athletes ranking or the one that has the least points in the corresponding discipline." 

 

E) "The oficial Information for points will be the “olympic fis points” list to be published on January 22nd 2018."

 

This is the real information of the Chilean criteria, do not speculate information please.

I am not speculating, just saying what I heard from athletes when we were talking about qualifying for the Olympics :)

 

Thanks though, I still really hope Juan gets it :)

Funny, what are the odds that this Jesus isn't Yonathan Jesus Fernandez?

 

Makes your cheering for his direct opponent weird, doesn't it. :p

No it doesn't :d 

 

I know Juan personally and found him to be a very nice and friendly guy. I'm sure Yonathan is a nice guy and very hard working athlete who deserves a place too, but since I don't know him personally and the 'fight' is between them, I'm cheering for the person I actually met (and who made sure I had dinner and breakfast) :p

Amazing 130 FIS points for Juan Agurto (Chile) yesterday in Turkey! If I heard so correctly, Chile will choose their athlete based on who has the single best result, not on who has the best average. Yonathan Fernandez has a much better average, but his best so far is a 132 (and he didn't finish yesterday), so this might be fantastic for Juan. Still nothing is sure, so I'm not celebrating too early yet, let's see how he does tomorrow.

 

Claudia Salcedo had 156 points (if I'm not mistaken), which means she only needs a half-decent result in Turkey's last race tomorrow to get her average back under 300 and qualify for Pyeongchang, vamos Claudia :cheer:

 

Just attach "the real information" of who will take the Chilean Olympic quota based on the Chilean classification criteria imposed by the ski federation. May the best one win here from the official Olympic list published soon on January 22!

Well, this explains Pita's 800+ points.

Lithuania qualified three cross-country skiers to the Olympics.

It's Modestas Vaičiulis, he's a sprinter, honestly our best chance to not be last

The second one is Tautvydas Strolia and you might recognise this name as his brother Vytautas Strolia is a biathlete.

The third one is Marija Kaznačenko, a girl that was depressed about her biathlon results and thought that she would never qualify to the Olympics so she took the easy way out to become a cc skier in order to qualify with no competition what so ever.

He went from Poland to Prague, so i'd assume the next race is in The Czech Republic/

Bosnia cancelled, Serbia cancelled, Lebanon cancelled...

 

This is just horrible for all those seeking qualification. I wonder if FIS will invite :MEX:TGA as wild cards, like they did with :VEN:RSA in 2014 (alpine skiing though)... This time it would be very much justified.

So no more races left?
