    ^ No big surprises in your neighbour countries either, but GO Sondre and Isabelle in your first big international senior competition

    Norway
    Ladies: Anne Line Gjersem
    Men: Sondre Odvoll Bøe

    Sweden
    Ladies: Viktoria + Joshi Helgesson and Isabelle Olsson
    Men: Alexander Majorov and one to be decided… probably Ondrej Spiegl if he is injury free. I 'm not sure if there is another man with the required scores….

    The Norwegian olympic comitee has stated that Anne Line needs to be top 8 in euros to be be considered good enough to get to go to Sochi, even though she qualified a spot at nebelhorn... and shes been injured lately. So happy for Sondre, hes been in top form all season!

    The second Swedish man is 15 years old Ilya Solomin, the new Swedish Junior Champion. I didn't think he had the required scores, or maybe he will compete somewhere before Euros. Congrats, how exciting it must be for him.

    His SP from 3.12.45
    His FS from 5.00.10

    I can't believe the stupidity of having someone qualify the first spot for your country in fifty years and then leaving her at home. Send Anne Line to Sochi!

    I checked and he has the minimums from Ice Challenge Graz. Ilya should be good to go for Euros.

    Her chances of making the top 8 are sadly pretty much none. Her spot will go to Januleviciute who hasn't had a good season so far (he only good performance was at Nebelhorn IIRC).

    He got both the SP and FS TES at 2013 Ice Challenge (competing in Junior Men).

    Sadly more skaters might meet this fate. Hendrickx needs to be top 12.

    That's far more achievable for him than a top 8 for Gjersem. And it just seems even more galling when qualifying an Olympic spot is such a breakthrough for a country and a skater.

    BTW, no shenanigans this time from the Israeli Olympic committee. Davidovich/Krasnapolski and Bychenko have been confirmed for the Olympic team.
