2022 Winter Olympics - Beijing, China

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

It seems sport and politics are not far away from each other. Given the political situation right now, I wonder if Canadians will even be allowed to go. I pray for a swift resolution to the present crisis, mostly for all the individuals involved.

Re: 2022 Winter Olympics - Beijing, China - FS qualifiers & judges

Post by Elizabeth » Tue Sep 28, 2021 11:12 am

After the Nebelhorn Trophy, the full list of countries qualifying to send an entry/entries to Beijing have been identified.

During the Nebelhorn Trophy events in Oberstdorf the draw took place for the judges to be part of the Winter Olympics panels.

The full document pertaining to both the entries and the judges is here: https://www.isu.org/docman-documents-li ... ation-2428

The relevant section about the judges shows that only Canada and China will have judges available to be selected in the on-site draw for all four disciplines:

I expect that now there will be no problems getting Canadian athletes into the Olympics. It's nice to know that Meng Wanzhou is safe & back home. They'll have to be very careful about Covid-19 being carried in by people from all over, but I expect they'll have a good system for checking that.
I hope everyone had a good summer.

I think it's going to be a great Olympics. I'll also be interested in the Men's & Women's hockey.

With 100 days to go to the opening ceremonies on February 4th, the design of the 2022 medals has been revealed. They echo the jade-inlaid ones from the 2008 Summer Olympics. In 2022 Beijing will become the first city to host both the summer and winter Olympics.
