    Thanks. I see they got them at Nebelhorn Trophy.

    Roll/Forsgren got injured during Nationals (they withdrew from the FS). This is why they aren't competing in Budapest.

    Ladies - 40 entries but it could go down to 34 if the skaters without the TES score dont get it soon. I hope the HUN girl gets it since it will be a shame for the hosts to not have a full team. Why Ventard is not even listed as a substitute oh stupid French fed. And yeah, wonder what happened to Ovcharova, she seemed so happy a few weeks ago. Any podium that is not 2 russian girls + Kostner will be a shock here.

    Pairs: Why oh why is the SWE federationg not sengind Roll/Forsgren? They have the minimun scores. Lavrentieva/Rudyk are being sent despite being the 2nd team who got the oly spot in Nebelhorn. Good to see ITA having a full pair roster and even with alternates.

    Dance- The Euro dance field despite lacking lots of top contenders is full with second tier very interesting teams and many will not skate past the OD :(. Fingers crossed for the swiss, slovakin, spanish and finnish teams. Im torn about R&T versus S&Z, i think the former deserve the olys more but they have really stagnated while the S&Z are a better team but just not up to oly calibre yet.

    Oh , I see, that's too bad, I was hoping to finally see SWE skating expanding among other disciplines. Thanks for the information

    I think that Szakacs' chance of making the minimums is very low. Here are her protocols from 4 Nationals (16th SP, 14th FS):

    This makes me so angry. Yes, Ventard only has two consistent triples: toe-loop and salchow. But she actually lands them quite consistently and she's an absolutely incredible performer. Her programs are usually well choreographed, she skates to the music and presents them very well. French Federation's continuing snubbing of her is just absolutely appalling.

    That would be horrible. :(

    He has done a fantastic job developing Ice Dance in Finland. Given the relatively short time he's been working there, he has managed to develop some very decent teams already.

    I he does indeed move to the US, I hope that the Finnish Federation can find another good coach to replace him.

    Thanks for the info. Too bad. :(

    I thought they've been coming along quite nicely this season. I hope they can make a full recovery soon.

    Is there any info why Anna Ovcharova isn't competing? I really like her programs this season.

    She doesn't have the minimum scores and did not try to obtain them at Ukrainian Open, New Year's Cup or MNNTC. I wonder why, given at least for MNNTC some late entries were made and accepted. Maybe Swiss Fed didn't want to make a last minute decision and selected national silver medallist, given she had the required scores already?

    One more lady with minimal technical score : Danielle Montalbano (Israel) reached it at the New Year's Cup.
    Bernadett Szakacs failed from 0.23 points at the short program. Marco Klepoch competed in junior and senior but didn't obtain the 25 points.

    He has earned TM for SP during Santa Claus Cup 2013 (02.12.2013 - 25.50), and he got TM for LP in Bratislava. So Marco can go to Euro!

    Which means all men have the required TES .
    Keep fingers crossed for Clara Peters, Marta Garcia, any Hungarian and Greek lady and Grigoreva/Maestu!

    Oops, I didn't realize that he has already the TM for SP, good new! So if there is no withdrawn we will see 5 more men as last year!

    Me too!
    What now? Who's left? Bobrova/Soloviev and Péchalat/Bourzat gone, will Ilynikh/Katsalapov actually become European Champs, and thus get the boost they need after their poor performance at Nationals? Or Cappellini/Lanotte?
    The only bright side to Péchalat/Bourzat's wd is that Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron get to compete at Euros.
    I'm curious if the FFSG has left some wiggle room to determine who will be the second pair to go to Sochi: What if Papadakis/Cizeron beat Carron/Jones in Budapest? They seem to have such big potential if they stay clean...
    omg... will Zhiganshina/Gazsi get a medal with their hot chick/dork with glasses programs?!?
