    News 2014 Nebelhorn Trophy

    Last year the Nebelhorn Trophy was all about getting those final spots for the Olympics. We saw tears of joy and pain, some dreams crushed while others fulfilled. While we won´t have an Olympic qualifier this year it won´t be less interesting for sure. A brand new judging system will be tested out, optional vocal support has been added to the ice dance and pairs competition and we do have international stars and those who want to be one in the future.

    Oberstdorf will welcome the Olympic bronze medalist Denis Ten, the-ever smiling Gracie Gold who won bronze with the team at Sochi, Ekaterina Bobrova & Dmitri Soloviev gold medalist in the team event, Mr. Sledge Hammer Jason Brown, Batman Alexander Smirnov with his Batgirl Yuko Kawagutchi, the elegance in person Fleur Maxwell and of course many of the local heroes such as the promising couple Annabelle Prölß & Ruben Blommaert or the Gjersem sisters.

    A special highlight as in every year will be the Gala on Saturday where not only the top competitors will perform, but also a couple of guests!

    (Cross-posting from The Edge)

    ETA, the link to the multi-page discussion in The Edge:

    Per the event announcement (link below), the ISU will test a new judging policy at Nebelhorn this year. Excerpt from the announcement:

    ISU Test policy:

    Two of the skating disciplines (Men and Ice Dance) are to be judged by the panel formed in the way described below:

     The two judging panels will be selected by the Technical Committees and will be trained at a one-day seminar before the start of the event.
     The panel will consist of 12 judges
     GOE is evaluated by 5 judges
     Four of these 5 Judges also evaluate one component different from the components evaluated by the other of these 4 Judges
     The 5 components are also evaluated by the remaining 7 judges
    - Each of these 7 judges is evaluating only 3 components
    - The assignment of these components is done so that each component is finally evaluated with 5 scores.
     The final result is calculated according to the current ISU system using the trimmed mean of the GOE and components scores.

    Prior to the test a questionnaire will be prepared by the committees to evaluate the opinions of the judges used for the test. The success of the test will also be measured by the opinions of TC Members and Sports Directors and a final report will be sent to the ISU Council.

    Page 7 of the Nebelhorn announcement has a chart showing a sample configuration of how individual judges would take on different sets of responsibilities.
    http://isuprod.blob.core.windows.net...nouncement.pdf (the announcement is twelve pages total)

    ETA:
    Thx to Mathman for typing out a version of the Nebelhorn PDF's chart that is compatible with the limitations of GS formatting. From the thread in The Edge:

    Judge#2 TR PE CH
    Judge #3 PE CH INT
    Judge #4 SS TR CH
    Judge #5 SS TR INT
    Judge #6 SS PE INT
    Judge#7 TR CH INT

    Judge #8 GOEs and also SS
    Judge #9 GOEs and PE
    Judge #10 GOEs and CH
    Judge #11 GOEs and INT
    Judge #12 Just GOEs

    This way each of the five program components is evaluated by five judges, and GOEs are judged by 5 judges also. (Too bad the math worked out so that there was one GOE judge left over with no component to judge -- TR already had five judges. Oh well, nobody's perfect.) ...

    Cheers for posting it, I was busy with Wimbledon and the WC

    I want to add that there is always practice in the morning before the comp starts, but I suppose most people know the procedure by now

    Tickets are not on sale yet, should be soon though!

    As mentioned earlier, Annabelle & Ruben are going to compete at Nebelhorn this year

    Still no update on the tickets, but don't worry - if you decide to come and they can not be shipped to you in time we will find a way. The price should be around 50-60 Euro for an All Event.

    Exactly - seems even better!

    I'm especially happy about Brown (of course) and so many Russian guys! And Valtter Virtanen to be sure, he's from my hometown so I gotta root for him

    Does anyone know if there was a hard stop at 24 for the ladies. It seems strange that the local rink would announce German ladies and the ISU doesnt list them.

    I am not sure about that to be honest, maybe the line up changed after Tatjana wrote the announcement She is a lot closer to the scene than I am and I am sure she had a good reason for listing those names

    Personally I would love to see Sarah at Oberstdorf she is a great skater in my opinion
