a) The Olympic Channel screen does not show "technical scores" during programmes.
I found a link that shows it (lower right corner - next to the name of the skater on ice).
Here is one for the Ladies SP. During the event, below the list of names there is a line with info on skater currently on the ice (not here now, but during the event).

b) Can someone pls explain how the Team Event works (I looked and could not find info).
  • they are only skating FS, right?
  • who gets to compete in each category in his/her respective country? the one who won? or the Feds appoint anyone they want?
  • any other info?


Wishing I could go back to the Lake Placid JGP

Thank you. i am not maybe familiar with some terms. one more question: will the teams be "by country" or "mixed - by random draw"?
Definitely not by country - the event is "Mixed NOC (National Olympic Committee, I'm pretty sure) Team". From my reading of the team selection rules, they are first dividing the skaters into three groups based on placements, then will have a draw within each group, with a set rotation of the groups among the 8 teams to try to even out the teams a bit (e.g. team 1 gets a man and dance team from group 1, pair from group 2, lady from group 3; team 8 has man, lady and dance from group 2 and pair from group 3).

[they've got a bit of a problem already, though, because the groups are set up with Group 3 of pairs being places 8-10, and there are only 8 pairs - so obviously every pair will be on a team, but they can't have two teams getting a Group 3 pair].

Looks like it's intended to be more of a "fun" event, that gets the skaters to mix across countries - but not sure about having skaters participating in an event on a more or less random basis. If I'm reading the rules and the group allocations correctly, only 2 of the top 5 ladies will be in the team event (then 3 of the next 6, and 3 of the bottom 5).

Funnily enough, one consequence of this is that none of the previous six YOG ladies medalists have ever participated in the team event. We'll see if that streak gets broken this year.

Ranking the teams based on their free skate/dance results at YOG:

Team Courage - 22
Team Focus - 21
Team Discovery [Channel] & Team Determination - 19
Team Motivation & Team Vision - 17
Team Future - 15
Team Hope - 14

Team Courage sneaks an advantage because the sorting of the participants is done using overall placements, but Yoshida/Nishiyama ranked two places higher in the free dance than they did in the overall standings, which means they have two medalists and the fourth-place finisher in the segment; their man is complete dead weight, though.

Team Focus, meanwhile, has two highest-ranked people in the segment and two people right near the bottom.


Happily ignoring pontificators & know-it-alls
All the CDN skaters were drawn to participate with the exception of Alexsa Rakic - the two CDN dance couples will have to compete against each other in the team event.
