    Lots of < calls in Senior Ladies SP.

    Weinzierl confirming her status as clear front-runner for the German Olympic spot.

    Poor skate for Joshi Helgesson. I guess she still hasn't fully recovered. :(

    Sad for Joshi. I've been waiting for her breakthrough for some time, she's so talented. But with repeting injuries, that's tough :( Wondering also about talented Sarah Hecken. Suppose she had problems that I don't know about. Will Germany send skaters to Sochi whatever? I remember Germany being strict, like skaters should be among the tenth best or....

    Hecken was never consistent. German Olympic Committee is going to impose high TES minimums, IIRC.

    Senior Men SP

    Denis Ten won Senior Men SP but not at his top shape still: 4toe<, 3axel, 3flip/2toe

    Tomi Pulkkinen landed his first 3axel in competition, I think!

    Not a lot of point difference between Bacchini, Righini and Zandron. The battle for the Olympic spot will be a bloodbath.

    Senior Ladies FS

    Nathalie Weinzierl won comfortably. I guess she has the Olympic spot in the bag now, provided she makes the TES minimums. Simancikova still in terrible shape. :(

    Joshi Helgesson withdrew after the SP. I hope that she didn't re-injure herself. :/

    Senior Men FS

    Ten didn't skate to badly but again not in top shape yet. Murakami won the FS.

    Bacchini was 3rd, Zandron 4th and Righini 5th. Who would have thought?

    German Ladies still did not reach the minimum of points necessary to get the Olympic spot but a good recovery for Sarah Hecken... but Wende/Wende with 162.91 points have reached the minimum, I guess... I read it was 155, so they reached it while Vartmann/van Cleave will need to stay home with 10 points behind... I am happy about that, I prefer Wende/Wende

    Do you know what the minimum points requirement for Ladies and Men is?

    I would respectfully disagree.
    Both have earned enough points to compete at the Olympics and the worlds. Please keep in mind that the points could have been earned "during the ongoing or immediately preceding season in both segments".

    I was asking about what the minimum points required by the German Olympic Committee is. They always set very strict criteria for German skaters. In the past, they required top 8 finish at Euros directly preceding Olympics but this time round they have set (high) minimum total score values.

    Again, Carmen95 was referring to the minimum points required by the German Olympic Committee.

    What has happened to Simancikova? She used to be very promising.

    I wonder myself. She's had a very poor season so far. :(
