Strange though, the FIS lists it as 'not confirmed by NOC'.  Not sure how that is possible if it was claimed through reallocation.

Maybe the Nf accepted with the condition of NOC approval,

Something strange in Halfpipe (men):
:GER won 3 quotas but only nominated André Höflich as the other two German athletes did not achieve the national qualification requirement

 

BUT: According to the official FIS page German NOC accepted all three quotas :question:

I already sent a mail to the DOSB and asked them for an explanation. It is not a common precedure to accept quotas and don't nominate athletes in Germany (e.g. we declined two quotas in womens freestyle moguls as well).

Does anyone has further information on this?

Well they picked her as their flag bearer so I am guessing the NOC is in the loop.  Still weird though. https://www.coa.ad/maeva-estevez-classificada-per-beijing-2022/

Germany, Canada and Andorra (probably more) have had issues with the FIS list, so I think its a FIS issue.

Looks like Canada has reaccepted 4 of the 5 quotas it declined in PGS. 3 Of the 4 athletes who stand to go now all posted they are going to the Olympics 3 days ago on Instagram.

 

Now I think the federation did not want to send them, these 4 appealed and it ruled in the favour. There has been no word from the COC or Snowboard Canada. This is all strange and bizarre. Ranks at the top for me for weird team selection stories. Congrats to the athletes and this brings Canada back to the second largest team.

It’s on the Beijing 2022 entries. Sébastien Beaulieu, Kaylie Buck, Jennifer Hawkrigg and Jules Lefebvre have all been added to the team.

 

Absolutely no word about this from Snowboard Canada xD
