    Arrow 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy Announcement is online (Olympic qualifying & Senior B comp.)

    Since it's still too early for the 2013-14 Kiss and Cry forum, I hope it's okay to create a thread for the Nebelhorn Trophy Announcement (Sept. 25-28, 2013 in Oberstdorf, Germany) in GSD. This is the "ISU designated Senior International Figure Skating Qualifying Competition to fill the remaining open entries for the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia for Men, Ladies, Pairs and Ice Dance" as well as a regular Senior B international: 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy Announcement

    Summary:

    Preliminary Entry Form (A) deadline: 30 June 2013.
    Entry Forms (B02/1 [not trying to qualify for OWG], B02/2 [trying to qualify for OWG]: 3 August 2013

    Target field size: 24, to be expanded if there are more countries attempting to qualify to OWG

    Entries (no explicit limit on Organizing Member (GER) entries):
    Singles: Non-OM members who placed 1-10 at Nebelhorn can enter up to two, if there's room; all nations attempting to qualify for OWG can send one.
    • Men: JPN, RUS, USA, CZE, KAZ, CAN
    • Ladies: CAN, RUS, JPN, SWE, EST (AUS and FIN need to qualify and can send one)

    Dance/Pairs: Each ISU member, up to two, if there's room.

    No minimum scores are required to participate. In the past scores from the Olympic qualifier count towards the SB list. Since the preliminary deadline is after the initial GP selection, it is good strategy to use as many spots as possible to secure a SB score for skaters who are not invited to GP and where spots at championships are limited.

    As usual, any Olympic qualifier is bound to be one heated competition. It would be very advantageous for countries seeking to qualify to pick and choose their entries very strategically. Any early guesses on which country will send who?

    In pairs, it will be very interesting to see if the new Japanese team is ready for that big event. I am not even talking about the Turkish pair...that would be unbelievable to see.
    The Brits, Bulgarian, Polish, Ukrainian, BLR pairs should be there. It won't be a very competitive field for the 4 spots, since the traditional pairs countries already qualified spots.

    Do they really? That's entertaining in itself. It's not like they bother with the World Championships.

    For ladies, countries who sent representatives to 2013 Worlds but had yet to qualify a spot are:

    Australia
    Spain
    Austria
    Brazil
    Denmark
    Belgium
    Georgia
    Switzerland
    Finland
    Norway
    Lithuania

    North Korea will likely send a representative to this event to try and qualify for Sochi. (Who else?)

    At least 6 spots will be given out at this event (more if some countries with qualified berths decide not to use all or any of their spots), with the frontrunners likely to be Finland, Georgia, Australia and Spain.

    For reference, here's the link to the earlier Nebelhorn discussion thread in GSD with Sochi Olympic qualifying info: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...enior-B-comp-)

    Interestingly, there are several cases above where the skater(s) may qualify a spot at Nebelhorn in September, but it does not guarantee their spot at the Olympics.

    I think Belgium and Switzerland also have a good chance if Ira Vannut is healthy and if Ovcharova can compete for Switzerland
