    For unknown reasons,  refused 2 female quotas even though the name list was announced 4 days ago including 7 female athletes. On FIS, there are only 5 female athletes confirmed .....  Not sure why or what happened. But internal information is that they qualified 7 female athletes and they also listed them as officially nominated: Kateřina Janatová, Tereza Beranová, Petra Hynčicová, Petra Nováková, Zuzana Holíková, Barbora Antošová, Sandra Schützová

    Results are on the FIS website, with Duda getting 292 points (and so not improving her total result). That means, when taking the internal criteria into account (classic distance races, freestyle sprints, in selected countries and competitions, including Slavic Cup and Balkan Cup and such), this should be the final table:
     

     
    Final standings:
    1. Jaque 1201.02
    2. Bruna 1504.71
    3. Duda 1635.26
    4. Mika 1709.23
     
    The Brazilian NOC will make the official announcement tomorrow in a live event at 15:00 CET. So it has yet to be announced, but half of the Zweisimmen-Sparenmoos snow has been melted by Bruna's tears when she called me/us and I gave her the finish times

    China should ban unvaccinated western athletes just like what Australia is doing. Such move is harsh but it' for the safety of the general public anyway.

    So, Bruna beat Duda by 3 seconds or so today. She got 279 points, Duda got 307, which brings us to this situation, with only tomorrow's 5k classic to go:
     

     
    Mika is now officially out, she has no theoretical race anymore in which to get her sprint average under 300 and even if she did, she'd be 4th in points anyway. Duda needs to get under 153 points tomorrow to even have a chance. If she scores 153.00 or more, she will end up with more (and so, worse) points than Bruna's current total. That is, of course, if Bruna doesn't improve her 281.10 points. If she does that, Duda will need to get under 153 minus Bruna's improvement.
     
    In short, it's looking more than excellent for Bruna.

    She has not met those requirements. But those are FFSG standards, not NOC ones. Winter sports in France are split between two federations : the FFS (snow sports) and the FFSG (ice sports) - also the FFHG (hockey) but they are not really Olympics-related (yet) . FFSG is a mess and (kind of) a disgrace, since Albertville 1992 they've brought home 6 of the 83 WOG French medals. Despite being one of the few countries with a functional ice track, they're not able to field more than 1 skeleton athlete per sex, and this is recent. Also Bessard is the child of the track's technical manager, Defayet the child of a track's worker 
    In a word I don't see them rejecting this quota. She worked hard to get it and that's some free advertising for the sport/federation, "look we qualify an athlete in skeleton". SPOIL : they did not nothing for it.

    Sara Ponya  is still not eligible for the Olympics, but she is starting in biathlon's IBU Cup tomorrow. Not sure if she knows she needs better FIS points or not.
     
    Fingers crossed for Bruna. I'll say a prayer.
  12. Wow!
    ahjfcshfghb reacted to heywoodu in Cross-Country Skiing 2021 - 2022 Discussion Thread   
    As mentioned in the IBU Cup thread....she was a DNS there today. I wondered if maybe, just maybe she would try another cross-country race, with the Argentina-organized races in Lebanon (Cedars) by far being the 'easiest' option in terms of results (maybe not so much in terms of travel). And guess what....

    She got a 242 or so in Campra, maybe she thinks one sub-300 is enough? I mean, that'd be very poor reading of the rules, but I can't think of another explanation other than "Nah never mind, don't want to go anyway"...
     
    Who knows, maybe if this doesn't work out for Ponya and Hungary has to give back their quota, that one and Thailand's second spot are the first two returned spots on the way to a third Brazilian ticket, possibly making this whole mess of the past two months a moot point

    If my calculations are correct (and luckily this season so far they generally are), that should result in these points:
     
    Jaque 103,36 Bruna 186,36 Mika 218,28 Duda 241,58  
    Putting Bruna roughly 140 points ahead of Duda in the internal ranking now (I'll wait a little with that until the points are on the FIS website and I enter them in my table)!

    All other Brazilians are on there as well (two of whom are still on their way from Poland), which should mean that the federation won't suddenly decide not to count these races. You never know, but that seems good...

    Interesting, since earlier today 'we' were told that the races are likely to be cancelled....
     
    Do you know if there is any way to contact this TSK Ravno Gorac/Ravnogorac? I tried an email last week, but got no answer.
     
     
     
     
    By the way, she arrived in Zlatibor last night after a 19-hour trip, and this morning was told she wasn't registered for the races by the Brazilian federation. Apparently the 'coach' of the team had told the federation's 'registration guy' "No, nobody is going to Serbia ". Luckily it seems she managed to solve this right on time with help of the (very friendly and very helpful!) Serbian organization, if she had arrived today it would have been too late...
     
    It's now going to come down to this for the second ticket, basically:
     
    1) Bruna in Zlatibor vs Duda in Zakopane during the week
    2) Whoever vs whoever (not sure yet) in Ravna Gora (if not cancelled), Bad Mitterndorf (AUT) or, most likely, Zweisimmen-Sparenmoos (SUI) during the final weekend

    will not send any athletes to the 2022 Olympics. One might think it’s because they didn’t qualify anyone because no North Korean athlete has left the country since the pandemic began, but officially they are not attending the Olympics in order to protest the United States-led diplomatic boycott.

    The women's qualifying is basically done since Sapporo & Zao won't be replaced. Therefore this nation list should be more or less official. The places are not for specific names but it's easy to guess Daniela Haralambie & Frida Westman will be the and nominations.
     
    Nicole Konderla & Kinga Rajda should be the two selections.
