    For every sport you'll find one link to a document with the international criteria and then directly below it a link to the criteria of the Dutch NOC (all in Dutch though). Section A2 of the documents include the national criteria. For some sports like biathlon and cross-country skiing, the national criteria just state that there is no athlete who has any chance of making the Olympics and therefore no further criteria were determined. 
     
    As everything is in Dutch, let me know if you need any help with translations.

    Yes, unless another skater achieves a total score of 186 points twice within the qualification period. The personal best of Niki Wories is 148 points, so that's highly unlikely.
     
    But great to have a Dutch figure skater at the Olympics for the first time since 1976!

    Figure skating is the only sport for which the Dutch NOC has not published their internal selection criteria yet.
     
    There's a very realistic chance they won't accept the quota yet though, as the philosophy is that every athlete that will go to Beijing has to prove that they have a realistic chance of finishing top 8 in Beijing. I don't think a top 16 here is sufficient.

    Britt Eerland won her group and therefore meets the international qualification criteria. However, she hasn’t met the Dutch criteria yet, so she’s not sure of Tokyo yet. She has to be in the top 16 of the world ranking counting max 2 athletes per country. She’s currently 18th on that ranking.
     
    She’s the best Dutch player by far and placed 28th on the world rankings at the moment. At times I really don’t understand the Dutch NOC’s criteria.

    There's a lot of potential in Germany, but the development of skaters has been very poor in recent years. Claudia Pechstein's husband has a lot of power within the German federation and keeps making poor decisions. One example: https://www.sportschau.de/wintersport/eisschnelllauf/eisschnelllauf-vertrag-mit-sprinttrainer-nicht-verlaengert100.html
     
    However, despite the poor developments in German speedskating, there are some talents coming through. The top juniors are a bit unlucky that there is no Junior World Championships this year as f.e. Anna Ostlender would have been my favorite for the title on the 500m based on her times skated in recent months. Victoria Stirnemann, Emelie Vogelsang, Isabel Kraus, Maira Jasch and Sophie Warmuth are also solid talents with great potential. Norway doesn't have such talents coming through on the women's side (besides Ragne Wiklund). On the men's side, you have Felix Motschmann and Finn Sonnekalb, but yeah, Norway does have more talent there.
     
    I think overall, the number of talents in Germany is more or less equal to the number of talented skaters in Norway, with Germany leading on the women's side and Norway on the men's side.
     
    What helps Norway is that Norway has 41 different 400m ice rinks, whereas Germany has 10, including the tracks in Berlin-Wilmersdorf, Grefrath, Crimmitschau and München which are barely used anymore. In Norway there are competitions held on a weekly basis on most of the 41 tracks and talents are spotted in an early stage of their development.

    Nice to read your predictions. For me Antoinette de Jong  and Natalia Voronina  are the clear favourites at the women's side, Nils van der Poel   will win the men's race tomorrow, although I hope for Patrick Roest  that he can finally become world champion on a single distance.

    I wanted to make a prediction for all four tournaments, but I don't have time to look at all the participants.
     
    However, this is my prediction for the women's allround tournament:
     
     Antoinette de Jong  Martina Sáblíková  Evgeniia Lalenkova  Natalia Voronina  Irene Schouten  Karolina Bosiek  Elizaveta Golubeva  Francesca Lollobrigida  Joy Beune  Nikola Zdráhalová  Natalia Czerwonka  Ekaterina Sloeva  Magdalena Czyszczoń  Sofie Karoline Haugen  Ida Njåtun  Ragne Wiklund  Mareike Thum  Leia Marie Behlau  Linda Rossi  Kristiine Kalev I'm pretty sure of my top 5. Bosiek will only finish top 8 if she wins the 500m by a good margin, otherwise she'll finish 9th and Joy Beune will take her spot in the top 8. Czerwonka and Zdrahalova can also finish top 8 if Lollobrigida doesn't skate a good 3.000m. It's almost impossible to predict what Lollobrigida can do here as she has only skated two minor outdoor competitions this season.
     
    And some predictions for the podium per distance, just for fun. These are even more difficult to predict this season:
     
    500m: 
     Karolina Bosiek  Ekaterina Sloeva  Elizaveta Golubeva 1.500m:
     Evgeniia Lalenkova  Elizaveta Golubeva  Antoinette de Jong 3.000m:
     Martina Sáblíková  Antoinette de Jong  Natalia Voronina 5.000m:
     Martina Sáblíková  Natalia Voronina  Antoinette de Jong
