    Does Paul Parkinson already have the SP minimum score of 32? His TES at Challenge Cup yesterday was 31.77.

    He already has it. He needs the LP score today or he won't be at Worlds.

    Thanks! And he did it! Parkinson got 69.89 TES in his FS today (min. of 60 was required) and can go to his first Worlds (in the country of his birth).

    I am happy that after Samuel Contesti worked hard to gain two spots for Italy, the Italian Team is able to fill these two spots

    Excellent news about Parkinson. He passed the high original FS TES minimum.

    It's not to strange. Rodighiero failed to qualify for the free at Euros with 44.71, her personal best in the short this year is 46.85 at Crystal Skate.
    Bressanutti had her season best at Hellmut Siebt Memorial two weeks ago with 47.09. So the difference isn't so big, she get the chance now to see if she qualifies now. Francesca Rio had better chances as she has skated 3 times over 50 in the short this season, but failed to get the FS minimum, witch Bressanutti did.

    I think it's good that Bressanutti got the opportunity.

    RAIsport2 showed the interviews made by Arianna Secondini (journalist commentator for RAI) in Detroit and Novi, here is a quick summary:

    BH: we are not thinking of the medal anymore now. You think of it for, like, two weeks, then you move on and set new goals. It's nice, thinking back, to know that we have earned it, but now we are focusing on Worlds.
    Stefania: (showing her engagement ring) yeah Rockne asked me to marry him in front of his whole family, I dind't expect it at all but I want to sped the rest of my life with him.

    CL: winning the bronze was just the beginning, they are very satisfied with how Euros went and it's the first big goal they have accomplished, but there are many more now. As we have no chances at making the podium here, we just want to do our best without having to worry about placements.

    Marchei: my goal of course is to qualify for Sochi. the French team asked me when I came here to get accustomed to the time zone and I said: two years ago!! Detroit is home for me now.

    GF: we are excited for our second world championships.
    Charlene: it's gonna be cool to skate in a sold out arena, I loves when the public supports you, it means a lot to me when the public is cheering a lot.

    Della Monica/Guarise now in the commentating booth (is that how it is called?), I am taking some notes on what they say and I will post them later.

    By the way guys, if you have any question for a Team Italy's athlete, feel free to post them here or send a PM to Eleonorad or me, as the off season is almost there and we are going to make again the off season interviews

    Ok guys as I am getting many messages from people about Anna and Luca's performance, and yesterday on Stefania and Ondrej's performance, I thought it would be better if anyone who wants to tell something/congratulate/cheer up any italian athlete, you can send me a PM or post it here and I'll give to the skater. I am sure they're all gonna appreciate them

    Article in Italian about the Mayor of Sesto San Giovanni (the city where they train - it's north of Milan) who yesterday went to the ice rink to informally meet them and congratulate with them about their achievements. Stefi and Ondrej said that their goal for the next season is to make the top-six at the Olympics.

    Ivan Bariev wants to compete for Italy:
    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...1509228&type=1

    But he skated at Nebelhorn Trophy last year for Russia, meaning he won't be able to fight for the Olympic spot for Italy there this fall. Also will Russia release him so easily?

    And short update about Samuel Contesti:

    Let's see: last year's Nebelhorn was Sept 27, .2012 till Sept 29, 2012

    This year's is the 25th to the 28th. Sadly, he misses out on the qualifier by a couple of days, provided, of course, Russia releases him.

    However, if he competes after Nebelhorn for Italy in some senior Bs ,couldn't he compete for Italy in the team event? Italy has Carolina, Berton & Hotarek, and Capellini & Lanotte, and surely will be in the top 10 countries, and so will qualify for the team event?

    Apparently he also competed at Cup of Nice, so the schedule of Nebelhorn next season doesn't really matter.

    Cup of Nice was in October, so wouldn't he still be OK for the team event at Olympics then?

    In fact, does he need to have even competed for Italy (except of course at the Italian championships) to qualify for the team event? The article said his dad was Italian; I'm presuming he has dual citizenship with Italy already.

    In any case, there are always Senior B's between October and the end of January, if he had to compete as an Italian.

    I hope it works out for Ivan Bariev, he probably would have more opportunities to compete for Italy than he has for Russia. I am not sure about his waiting period, though. His last (international) competition for Russia indeed was the Coupe de Nice in October 2012. The relevant ISU rule states that in case you switch countries you need to wait 12 months for international competitions and 18 months for ISU Championships, counted from July 1 of the season you want to compete for your new country (which would be July 1, 2013).
    Rule 109:

    2.b ii) before July 1st immediately prior to his first International Competition as a member of the Member, he has not
    competed in any International Competition or ISU Championship for another Member during the twelve (12) preceding months;
    2.b iii) before July 1st immediately prior to his first ISU Championship as a member of the Member, he has not competed in any International Competition or ISU Championship for another Member during the eighteen (18) preceding months

    Rule 109 2b ii and iii refer to skaters who want to represent a country they are not citizens of, however, below it is stated that the waiting periods are the same for anyone who represented another country before:

    If a Skater, who has already represented one Member in an International Competition or ISU Championship, intends to compete in
    the future for another Member, regardless of the grounds on which the possibility of such change is based, such Skater shall be subject to the waiting periods set forth in subparagraphs 2. b) ii) and iii) above.

    If this is the case, Ivan would need to wait even though he has Italian citizenship, if I am understanding these rules correctly. The waiting periods are shorter for pairs and ice dancers.

    By those rules he'd have to wait until 2014-15, where he wouldn't have competed for another country within 12 months of 1 July 2014 for international competitions and within 18 months of 1 July 2014 for ISU championships.
