    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.

    I sense an opportunity for France in Dance! I'll lay 10-1 odds Didier is scheming already.

    Just kidding. I think......

    Apparently, it is most likely that Didier will become the next ISU president after Cinquanta. It will be fantastic for a figure skater to hold the top job again but knowing his history its going to be interesting. Hold onto your hats....

    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 believe the source is our own KKonas, longtime member of the professional media covering figure skating, who sometimes shares inside scoop with us before it is published elsewhere. Thanks to KKonas' original reporting, "you heard it here first" on none other than GS.

    Thanks, golden411. My source is from a high level ISU judge. I know several.

    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.
