looking at the scheme for the girls, I'd say that Schouten is already locked in...she's at number 8 with 10 places up for grab, so...

Verweij, instead, it looks he has to earn his spot (in the Team Pursuit, too) in another race, since the Mass Start no.1 is only at number #11 in the scheme (which is probably going to be enough, but still he's not mathematically safe yet)...

Correct, and the second places will be chosen after the OQT apparently. 

 

By the way, the team pursuit teams are as follows, in case they all qualify: Leenstra, De Jong, Wüst and Kramer, Verweij, Blokhuijsen.

Are they going to make Bergsma a reserve again? :p

Laugh all you want, but Bergsma will always have the best pia... I mean technique. :bowdown:

As the URL suggests, it's the women's 3k and men's 500m today. Didn't check the 500m draw yet, but I'm curious to see who will have the unfair advantage this time (due to it being only a one-race event).

Women's 3000m:

1. Antoinette de Jong 4:02.07

2. Ireen Wüst 4:03.39

3. Carlijn Achtereekte 4:05.76

 

All three going to the Olympics.

And Shouten isn't qualify :( It's so sad

Not in the 3km, she'll be in the mass start unless something extremely weird happens. That chance is maybe 0,1%, so no worries.

Isn't she already qualified for the mass start? She is already number 8 on the list, and 10 go.

Of course, but I expected that she was able to compete in 3k too :p

Nah, she had a chance for 3rd place but Wüst and De Jong were to be expected in the top-2 :p

TV production for this is very good, certainly heads and solders better than the US or Canadian trials for most winter sports (with the exception of the Curling trials for Canada - which is arguably a better event than the Olympic tournament - and the figure skating trials for the US).
