    Confirmed rosters Olympics 2014

    Great Britain as announced its team, see here.

    Great Britain
    Jenna McCorkell - ladies
    Stacey Kemp/David King - pairs
    Ice Dance - Penny Coomes/Nicholas Buckland - ice dance
    Mathew Parr - man in team event

    Team GB has qualified for the team event. I assume everyone will do the SP/SD (but not qualify for the FS/FD)

    Any other national teams announced so far for figure skating?

    GO COOMES/BUCKLAND! I thought they were a delight at TEB.

    They make a glamourous team, their skating is a pleasure to watch, and perhaps having them in the spotlight of the Olympics will help boost the popularity of skating in the UK.

    Good thread Sequins!

    Yes yesway, the team event may be a good way to rise the interest in a country that have middle good skaters. And what a great oppurtunity for Parr. I'm sure he will do better than his best I like the team event-idea more and more.

    I can give you the first nonofficial names for Germany.

    Pairs:

    Aljona & Robin
    Maylin & Daniel Wende

    Ice Dance

    Nelli & Alex
    Tanja & Stefano

    Men

    Peter Liebers

    While those names need to be confirmed this week, they are pretty much a given.

    Ladies

    Nathalie Weinzierl (she has not reached the qualification score, but since Germany has a team going on - it is very likely that she will also start in the Ladies)

    Do you have a Pair team with the minimum scores? Or do they not apply for the team event?

    Yup, officially confirmed just a few minutes ago... That´s great for the Wende´s after their long break to have such a great comeback... And a pity for Weinzierl (I have not read it, but I think she will "only" be in the Team Competition) that she missed the qualification score needed by less than a point :/

    There are four international competitions before the Olympics still.

    Yes Nathalie needed 145, but missed it by 0.4 points. The following competitions don't count anymore, as the DOSB had to make the decision for the Athletes today, at January they will nominate the staff like the coaches.

    Regarding the official DEU info it is happening Nathalie will start in the Ladies + Team. The team will be "selected" at a later date though out of the following athletes.

    Sehr erfreut nahm die Deutsche Eislauf-Union die soeben eingetroffene Benachrichtigung des DOSB entgegen, dass folgende Eiskunstläuferinnen und Eiskunstläufer vom DOSB für die Olympischen Winterspiele 2014 in Sotschi nominiert worden sind:



    Herren: Peter Liebers



    Damen: Nathalie Weinzierl



    Paare: Aljona Savchenko

    Robin Szolkowy

    Maylin Wende

    Daniel Wende



    Eistanzen: Nailya Zhiganshina

    Alexander Gazsi

    Tanja Kolbe

    Stefano Caruso

    Doesn't that press release say that Nathalie Weinzierl was nominated? So I imagine that she'll take part in both Ladies and team after all? I mean come on, give her a break, it's only 0.4 points!

    Yes, she will start at both - at least I don't see any reason why she shouldn't. As you said, she only missed it by 0.4 points + she showed at the nationals that she can skate much better than she had shown before, therefore the DOSB gave her the ticket. She said it herself "it was a relief to not have to skate with the Olympic Qualification score in mind at nationals".

    Those names mentioned above will compete at their respective categories - maybe I wasn't clear there before, sorry if that was the case.

    The team itself, those that compete in the team event - will be selected out of those athletes. As we only have one Lady and one Men, we can be quite sure that those will compete. As for pairs and dance - I assume Maylin & Daniel for the pairs and Tanja & Stefano for Dance, but a confirmation is still needed there at a later date.

    The Swedish team is Viktoria Helgesson and Alexander Majorov. Good luck to them

    Sweden will also send 3 judges.

    I am a little surprised with this announcement. Viktoria Helgesson has had a very disappointing season so far. Yes she is the national champion but I would wait until 2014 Europeans are over to name the lady.

    I agree. Helgesson had a meltdown this season thus far. However, I am confident she can turn herself around in time for Europeans, so I think the choice is okay.
