Success of the recent World Team Trophy competition in Japan has Mr. Cinquanta now considering the addition of a team competition to the Olympics. He invisions such a team event taking place before the individual Olympic events and NGB's could use the same skaters from the team, in the individual events, or possibly other skaters.

Cinquanta told Philip Hersh that such an event would have to be test tracked, most likely at a near-term World Championships before being accepted as an olympic event. 2014 is the earliest that it might be added to the Olympic calendar.
