With Peter Liebers and ice dancers Nelli Zhiganshina and Alexander Gazsi moving up the ranks, Germany may qualify for the new Olympic team event. If it does, it will compete without its stars.
"We have already told the federation that we are not going to take part in the team event in Sochi," Steuer said. "It is too close to our own competition. The gold medal in our individual event is more important to us. It is why we have been working so hard since 2010."
