    Number of Spots for 2014 Euros

    Men
    France 3
    Russia 3
    Austria 2
    Czech Republic 2
    Germany 2
    Spain 2
    Sweden 2

    Ladies
    Italy 3
    Russia 3
    Sweden 3
    France 2
    Germany 2
    Spain 2

    The Helgesson sisters just about managed to earn 3 spots for Sweden which means Isabelle Olson (or somebody else) can join them next year.
    DEU's decision to send Weinzierl was definitely the correct one. I don't think Hecken would have managed to place top 10, given how high the level of skating was.
    ETA: Spain will be using the second ladies spot. As Hieloespanol has pointed out, Marta García has the required minimum scores and Elene Mangas has the SP score and is looking for the FS one.

    Pairs
    France 3
    Germany 3
    Italy 3
    Russia 3
    Great Britain 2

    I like the way it turned out. Gives an incentive for British, French and Italian skaters to get on with it.

    Ice Dance
    Italy 3
    Russia 3
    Azerbeijan 2
    France 2
    Germany 2
    Great Britain 2

    Two spots for Azerbeijan. I guess we're going to see the Porters next year? :D
    Germany missed three spots by one point. :/

    It's hard to imagine the Porters getting the necessary TES in the SD...or FD to qualify for Europeans.

    Maybe AZE will import another team?

    Yes, the second spot available at Euros it might incite somebody to represent Azerbeijan.

    I think the Italian federation will push for making up a new pair, since they have three spots for next year and at Nationals there were just Berton/Hotarek and Della Monica/Guarise

    There were 3 couples on the JGP from Italy, of whom Sforza & Foresti did the best. Perhaps, they will go senior next year!

    Sorry, this is not true. We have two senior female skaters that would be able to compete in Budapest: Marta García and Elene Mangas, so we'll use this second spot.

    They don't have the minimum scores, though, do they?

    Of course even if they don't yet, there are plenty of international competitions between now and next January they could earn it at, so I will be keeping my fingers crossed it works out for them.

    Marta García has the minimal score for senior euros and junior worlds, where she'll be our represent. She got the minimal scores for euros in Challenge Cup 2012 (SP) and Cup of Nice 2012 (FP).

    Elena has the minimal score for the short and she's looking for the free.

    Thank you for the information, I didn't realise that. Best of luck to both girls and hopefully Elena can earn the FS score before next Euros.

    The Challenge Cup score (11-12 season) will not count for next year though.

    It's only the current and the preceding seasons that count?
