The 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) will be held Jan 19 - Feb 1, 2024, in Gangwon, South Korea. The figure skating portion will take place Jan 27 - Feb 1.

It is an international multi-sport event organized by the International Olympic Committee in which the games are held every four years. The games are staggered summer and winter events consistent with the current Olympic Games format, though in reverse order with Winter Games held in leap years instead of Summer Games.

In the four individual events, the competing athletes will skate in both a short program (or rhythm dance) and a free skate (or free dance). Due to the number of athletes competing, there will be no cut and all athletes will skate in both segments, receiving scores based on their technical elements (TES) and their presentation and performance (PCS).

Meanwhile, the team event will feature only a maximum of eight teams; not all four individual segments need to be skated. Only the best three scores will count, meaning teams with entrants in only three of the four individual events are able to qualify for the team event. No short program (or rhythm dance) will take place, with only the long programs being skated. Points will be awarded on a sliding scale per segment, with eight points for the top team going down to one point. The team with the most points from their three best segments will win the event.

We already know how difficult it will be to find six pairs teams that fit within the narrow 2006-2009 birth year increment required by YOG.

It got me thinking how difficult it might also be to find a dozen ice dance teams, when you add citizenship-eligibility issues to age-eligibility issues. France and Canada have teams to choose from, other countries maybe not so much:

WINTER YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES GANGWON 2024:

There will be mini team event on the last day of competition consisting of FP/FD only. Countries competing must field entries in at least three disciplines. (If a country competes in all four disciplines, only the placements in the top three will count.) Up to eight countries may participate.

KOR (MWD), FRA (MWD), CAN (MWPD), USA (MWPD) should qualify to participate. It will be interesting to see if any other countries can jump through these hoops.

IK people have already said this, but this team event is stupid. it was so fun being able to watch the mixed NOC teams with athletes from different countries and experience levels cheering on each other. that was true sportsmanship

For the team event, countries have to have at least one entry in three disciplines. For those with entries in all four disciplines, only the three highest placements will count towards the team score.

Point distribution:
  • 1st 8 placement points
  • 2nd 7 placement points
  • 3rd 6 placement points
  • 4th 5 placement points
  • 5th 4 placement points

I see! Well, I'm glad that there are more than 4 countries on the list. (y)

Oh, sorry. Never thought of mentioning it in here.

It has been on her website since it was set up last season that she would be going. But there have been doubts since then because of the issues she has been having with injuries since the tail end of last season. So, I thought it better not to say anything until she was practically on the plane! :laugh:
