    I do not think that was confirmed yet.
    According to their web site, Brezinova was nominated for the EC and the JWC will be determined after their junior nationals. It does not say anything abut OG. Perhaps they are waiting to see if Brezinova can repeat last weeks performance at the EC.

    That leads me to ask aquestion.
    As per the ISU instructions for the Olympics, those countries with a spot and all alternates should send a form with names of conmpetitiors to the ISU only, no later then 11/1/2014. This is before the EC begins. Therefore I am confused.

    Is the ISU only form due by 11/1 name binding and is the country allowed to also register a alternate competitor (just like to WC) or this is not binding and the final name will be sent to Sochi no later than 27/1/14? What is the purpose of sending it twice?

    How else will be some countries making decision based on the EC?

    I can imagine you can send one name plus one or more alternates, just like for ISU Championships.

    Since Brezinova didn't get to go to the Nebelhorn Trophy, she didn't have a chance to be the one to earn the spot.
    So the interesting question would be: How did they decide who gets to go to Nebelhorn, since that decision excluded anyone but Ukolova from going to Sochi?!?

    Many federation do tests after the summer break and assign competition based on the test results.
    Brezinova competed only in one or two B's competitions this year with very weak points. Ukolova did JGP and few senior B's with fairly good results.
    Nevertheless, Brezinova was clearly better in the their nationals.

    That is so cool!
    SaraM, I think you got the whole GS Forum to deeply care for her - even more than we did before! I wish her the best for Sochi, and to bring a smile to all those who watch her skate.
