    This ought to be good - a nice easy entry into international Seniors for Jason. Oda, Dmitriev and Martinez the only ones likely to give him any bother, and he beat Martinez last time out, and Dmitriev hasn't been skating well in a long while.

    I just noticed Australia has no pair entered. #teamaustraliaforteamevent

    Kristof FORGO HUN 16 S
    18 Conor STAKELUM IRL 17
    19 Alexei BYCHENKO ISR 18
    20 Stanislav SAMOKHIN ISR 18
    21 Paul Bonifacio PARKINSON ITA 19
    Paolo BACCHINI ITA 19 S
    Dario BETTI ITA 19 S
    Saverio GIACOMELLI ITA 19 S
    Antonio PANFILI ITA 19 S
    Maurizio ZANDRON ITA 19 S
    23 Saulius AMBRULEVICIUS LTU 21
    24 Fabriczio CARRILLO MEX 22
    25 Florian GOSTELIE NED 23
    Boyito MULDER NED 23 S
    26 Michael Christian MARTINEZ PHI 24
    Christopher CALUZA PHI 24 S
    27 Maciej CIEPLUCHA POL 25
    Patrick MYZYK POL 25 S
    28 Jin Seo KIM KOR 26
    Dong-Won LEE KOR 26 S
    June Hyoung LEE KOR 26 S
    29 Zoltan KELEMEN ROU 27
    Catalin DIMITRESCU ROU 27 S
    32 Stephane WALKER SUI 30
    Mikael REDIN SUI 30 S
    33 Osman AKGÜN TUR 31
    Ali DEMIRBOGA TUR 31 S
    34 Yakov GODOROZHA UKR 32

    27 countries, 2 of them sending two contenders while the others all send one, six spots, no countries that have the other 24 likely to give any of them up, and no locks. Insert Hunger Games reference here. Then consider:

    Yakov Godorozha: Just missed at Worlds
    Justus Strid: Also made the men's free at Worlds, but was much further behind
    Maciej Ciepulcha: Just missed qualifying for the free
    Jin-Seo Kim: Behind Ciepulcha, but has the potential to do better than that
    Michael Christian Martinez: Wasn't at Worlds because Chris Caluza took that berth over him, but considered likely to pass him sooner or later
    Pavel Ignatenko: Withdrew from Worlds, beat three of the above plus Olympic qualifier Viktor Romanenkov at Europeans
    Stephane Walker: Has earned scores comparable to those above
    Luiz Manella: Lacked the qualifying score for Worlds, but getting some attention very recently since, and it should be kept in mind that non-European skaters have less chances to earn said score
    Hyon Choe: Did respectably enough at the Asian Figure Skating Trophy two weeks ago, the first time we've seen anything of him, and North Korea does often qualify at least one skater for the games
    Alexei Bychenko & Stanislav Samokhin: The former probably has more chance than the latter, who has no international record sending an extra skater probably ups a country's chances at least a little
    Bela Papp & Valtter Virtanen: Have generally weaker records than Bychenko, but again there's two of them...
    Zoltan Keleman: The only man here competing for a spot who has won one in the past, which he did for the last Olympics

    Predicting seems like shooting in the dark, but I'm going to go with Godorozha, Kim, Martinez, Ignatenko, Ciepulcha, and for the final spot, I've just got a feeling about Manella, though I'd be close to saying Keleman instead. Look for me to probably be wrong. Ladies and couples coming up this evening, hopefully.

    Question about the pairs event: why are Tatiana NOVIK / Andrei NOVOSELOV competing for Romania? There must be some kind of mistake.

    I had a look at the Nebelhorn trophy announcement and it said that if a nations wanted to gain an olympic qualification spot in a certain discipline through Nebelhorn, they were only allowed to send one entry for that discipline.

    I found nothing on the internet about this, no news, 0 (but that's not too relevant since Romania's interest in figure skating is practically non existent and the Romanian figure skating federation's site has not been updated since 2011 or close to that). I am very curious to see if it's true and what are they planning for the future

    I know I'm late but did V/T really receive +1.50 GOE points of the twofooted throw 3Salchow? Wow the overscoring has gone too far it's embarrassing.
