    News Olympic Technical Panel Info

    Re: Technical Panel Only: None of the Technical Panel at the individual events (not the team events), will have members from the countries whose skaters have placed in the top 5 at the 2013 World Championships.

    I hope whoever is on the ladies panels isn't a stickler for URs. I want to see some big scores and tough jumps rewarded!

    So has the tech panel members been selected or is this "news" only about the restriction to non-top 5 country federation members?

    Sounds purposeful in advance, not coincidental after-the-fact. In other words:

    Men: No panelists from Canada, Kazahkstan, Spain, or Japan (another Canada was #5).
    Women: No panelists from Korea, Italy, Japan or the USA (another Japan was #4).
    Pairs: No panelists from Russia, Germany, Canada, or China (another Canada was #4)
    Dance: No panelists from USA, Canada, Russia, or Italy (another Canada was #5)

    Is this correct interpretation? Now trying to figure out which skaters this affects either beneficially or negatively.

    This is an excellent idea.

    For the judging panels, historically it seems like they tried to go the other way. If there was a judge that was expected to be biased in one direction, that was balanced by another judge leaning the opposite way. This is better.

    Yes, but only for the tech panel, not the judging panel or the Referee/Assistant Referee. The actual names of the potential tech panels have not been announced although I am sure each country has sent names of their tech specialists to the ISU.

    I want the technical panel to be very sharp, scores need to be deserved, definetely no UR´s. A jump is not tough, if it is underrotated.

    This seems like excellent news for Nathalie and Fabian. And they are due for a little good luck.

    I would expect a Russian on the men's and/or the women's panel, I'd think.

    Perhaps an American on the men's and/or pairs panel.

    A Canadian on the women's panel.

    David Kirby has been nominated by US for tech specialist position in Pairs and Todd Goldstein for judge panel in Pairs, and Shawn Rhettstatt for judge panel in ice dance. Hopefully their names will be drawn.
