so is it a 3 day event? are all the disciplines doing both programs?

i just thought it was a one day thing, one program from each, add up the marks.

Well I do suspect the federations want them to headline SC, SA and TEB. What about the three other ones? Say if V/M want CoR, D/W want CoC, and P/B want NHK, do they still have a draw? Or do V/M get to pick again first out of CoR CoC and NHK because they are the World Champ?

1. The first pick is from the host federations and they choose the upto three entrants they want (from the host nation).

2. The top three go from there. V/M get first pick as world champions from the federations that don't have a medalling team. Now, if the three teams want three different events, the draw is a mere formality. For example, the only way for P/B to avoid doing two events back to back is with CoC, but if D/W want it, they're SOL.

I've not seen anything posted for sure, but it seems that the team event in the Olympics is going to be similar to the WTT.

I would hope they have the individual events first. I certainly think they mean more to the skaters and where they want to put their focus. Plus you just know that the average 'joe' watching is gonna say 'Hey they skated to this a few days ago. Why are they doing it again can't they come up with something else?':rolleyes: Come on you just know you're gonna hear that.:lol:

no, the team event is first. tessa and scott at first didn't like it being first but marina convinced them that they would get a feel for the crowd, the vibe, and that would ultimately help them in their individual competition. now, they're okay with it. scott even says an olympic medal is an olympic medal.

i just hope that the individual events don't start the next day after the team event ends. i think they need to give the skaters time to recuperate. no one ends the fd at skate america and the next day start the sd at skate canada.

Well that just...stinks, but thanks anyway for clarifying.

At the Olympics, pairs always go first, so I'd imagine that they would have the least turn around time. The other three disciplines would have more time to get ready for their individual events.

Thanks! It sounds like they're in car, I wonder who is driving lol.
ETA: Now that I just thought of it the interviewer did say they were on transit to Detroit.

Was this from an interview? I don't like this setup. I feel like the individual competitions should get first priority and they should have the team events after the individual competitions are done.

No. At OG every team will have 1 pair, ice dance team, one man and one lady. At this WTT every team will have 2 single skaters.

If they want. In semi-final teams will skate SP. Then before final team could change some skaters.
