Also what's with '19' couples? Are we having 19 at the Olympics and not 20? If that's so the host nation can have a spot, surely with it being in China, there is no need for this rule this time around.
What I don't understand is, if you are China and Japan and you have 'qualified' a team, but they still need to go to Nebelhorn, isn't that essentially a 're-qualification' test and so really, they haven't officially qualified a team :wall:
No one loves skating more than I do and I would be gutted for Worlds to be cancelled but Canada and the ISU are utterly delusional to keep this event going. When you live in Italy or the rest of Europe you start to understand the gravity of the situation.
The same mistakes were made in Europe...
