I'm surprised Japan didn't consider giving a team spot and individual spots for ice dance to 2 separate couples.

I do not believe the rules permit that. Japan only qualified one ice dance team at Worlds, and thus to the Olympics. They can only use that one ice dance team in the team event. (the same with their pair team).

That's right (re: Japanese ID teams).

I saw yesterday that Vincent Zhou was on his way to Beijing. I think that might mean he is doing the team event. Although the men's event is very close to the TE, so might not mean anything, however I think he'll do team as well.

I believe Vincent will do the Team Event, but I'm not sure this post is evidence of that.

Tom Z was somewhat confusing in his post, by saying on the way to Beijing in the IG post but then in Twitter said "First Leg. Beijing Olympics". Ashley Cain-Gribble posted that she was flying to LA for team processing and training in the bubble, and Karen Chen posted a "travel outfit" in her IG stories.

My own guess, reading them all together, is that the US team is gathering in LA and flying from there. But it does take some connecting the dots, so I could be completely wrong. :)

A figure skating coach who will be going to the Olympics told me they are very strict with the rules of staying there and said people would have to leave the day after the event. However I am not sure if that only means staff or athletes as well. When we spoke, he did not know how the Opening ceremony would work and if there would be a parade of nations.

Obviously the skaters who are skating in the gala or those who did the team event and are then staying in Beijing until their individual events will remain in the village or at a separate training location (if rules allow). The schedule for figure skating of course shows a lot of extra practices throughout February which is of course required for everyone who needs to stay for the entire duration of the event and train for their individual, as well as Worlds.

Twitter seems to think Russia will use no alternates in the team event, and is using Kamila, Mark, Mishina Galiamov and Sinitsina Katsalapov for both programs. I am not sure why.

the reasons to do that is to make sure of the gold medal. Canada more or less did that in 2018... they only swapped Gabby for the LP and did not use their second alternate to make sure V/M or D/R would score as highly as possible, in case men or women didn't... In the end, Patrick won the LP... and the gold was a done deal but they alternates needed to be announced before the LPs, so nobody else was brought in to the ice.

I mean, it makes sense for the most part. Mark's been consistent (for a Russian man), Kamila's been consistent, M/G have been consistent. I would swap out S/K for S/B for the free dance because of Nikita's back. They might take a hit and lose the dance to the US, but it's such a small points swing that it won't matter.

I meant, I’m not sure why Twitter seems to think that because I haven’t seen any official announcements.

Ahem...sorry for being a bit of a whiner, but does Twitter think at all? Or do many posters on twitter think? Or does a certain person/organisation with an account on twitter think, and the followers or others who have an account and have seen that post agree?

Let me rephrase: I've come across a piece of information on Twitter that Russia has announced its plans for the team event. Has anyone found a confirmation of that piece of news?

The timetable for entry submissions is

With respect to the “exchange possibility” within a Team the following dates and deadlines apply to confirm the names of Skaters/Couples (possibility of exchanges) who will skate for the Team in the segment in question.

Right, that is mostly why it really makes no sense not to swap anyone out. I think they could definitely "risk" swapping out another event as well.

I am shocked they are not swapping out the women either. Or is that to keep it fair?

Same for pairs.

I guess we will see in time.

Mind you, it might not be true. It's just what I saw on Twitter, but no link or anything and I'm sure the Russian press would have covered it by now had it been announced or even discussed publicly.

@gsk8:

I wonder whether this thread is the place to talk about current overall team standings, because fans are going off on tangents in individual discipline threads, e.g., referring to the pairs sp event in the RD dance event thread. Or discussing other events and overall chances of certain countries in the individual discipline threads, which gets confusing. There should be a separate designated thread to discuss overall current result standings and outcome predictions going forward.
