I'm afraid this is not coming as a surprise, but it is absolutely devastating nonetheless. The Dutch speed skating federation has just announced the death of Lara van Ruijven at 27.

The national team coach Jeroen Otter today said there has been not a single sign of recovery and Van Ruijven is very much fighting for her life. She is in an artificial coma and that's not expected to

This is so devastatingly sad. I met Lara in 2015, and she was a nice person. Condolences to her family, friends and teammates.

Where I can find qualifying times for Beijing - 2022 in short track?

as there's a precise number of slots available (8 relays, 32 skaters in 500m and 1000m and 36 in the 1500m), in short track it's not about times, it's about qualifying by being part of a relay that makes it through and/or finishing high in the world cup standings (only in those events listed as olympic qualifiers, though)...

Should be the first four world cups of the 2021/2022 season I think. The qualification document is in the qualification thread.

Korean media reported 2018 Korean Olympic Champion Lim Hyo Jun neutralized as Chinese to compete 2022 WOG due to the concern that he may lose Korean qualification for sexual harassment scandal. 
 

The scandal is that he took off another male teammate’s pants during a training session and seen by female teammates. He was suspended by 1 year from 2019 June but still couldn’t find place for training in Korea until now. So he began training in China with China NT from last season. 


Lim is somehow seen as victim of internal political battle loser by Chinese fans including me. So I am still eager to see official channel to confirm this widely reported rumor. Personally I welcome Lim.

Can't believe that the soap opera is still going on. His reportedly neutralization process remains unclear. It's still possible that he go back to Korea or trying to represent China but rejected by Korea (only in OG).
