    So, he had better move quickly and start filling out the forms now!

    Z/Z have already qualified. Happy for them! So sad my lovely country declined him Estonian citizenship, otherwise they could go to Olympics(no chance of scoring high, but still)

    What are you talking about? This has nothing to do with it. Boyadji is not satisfying any of the requirements for obtaining British citizenship and even if he did, it would have taken 5 years at least.

    Good grief! I'll never forget the first time I heard him speaking during 2011 Worlds. Couldn't help thinking: Is he, ehm, Lina Lamont or something? Is he really ruling this sport? No wonder his decisions don't make sense.

    Cinquanta just said that if "a skater" gets injured or withdraws during or after the team event, he won't be replaced in the individual event. To get the repalcement he has to withdraws before the ISU reunion on February 5th. I'm not sure I got this right, audio is kinda low and Cinquanta speaks like a 6years old, so confusing

    Like I just said... nonsense. But Cinquanta stated rather proudly that figure skating needs "more controversy".

    We have Plushenko to thank for ISU staying on top of this before some mysterious "injuries" happened.

    But I thought there were special procedures in place for sportspeople to speed up the process and get them competing sooner.

    I'm just thinking about the number of people in althletics that have competed for Team GB at the past few Olympics, but were actually foreign born. Or the number of footballers that have played for England over the years that were foreign born.

    Admittedly, most of these were from former British colonies. But some, like runner Mo Farrah (Somalia) were not.

    So, if Christopher does have to go through the full procedures and it takes the full 5 years, it's already too late.

    Oh well! Our loss!

    Yes, I heard him interviewed by Italian commentators during 2011 Worlds (when he was caught on tape while mocking Takahashi's skate problems), and he was all smug and self-satisfied about Team event taking place BEFORE individual events at the Olys, because that would lead to "more controversy". I was just left speechless.
