4 more countries for men/women & 3 more countries for pairs/dance will be added after the results of the 2019 JGP series are known.
With the pairs events officially over, the highest placements for non-automatic countries are:

JGP Lake Placid: Canada (5th)
JGP Chelyabinsk: North Korea (5th), Canada (6th)
JGP Gdansk: Germany (3rd), Georgia (8th)
JGP Croatia: Georgia (6th)

The North Korean pair isn't eligible, who knows if they have another? Hocke/Kunkel obviously aren't eligible either, but I'd guess Germany has somebody.

With the JGP Italy results in, the dance spots are as follows:

Canada (2)
Russia (2)
United States (1)
Georgia (1)
France (1)
Ukraine (1)
Italy (1)
Switzerland (1)
Czech Republic (1)
Japan (1)

In line to take any vacant spots:

Estonia
United Kingdom
Israel

Switzerland had no teams at all on the JGP this season, and Georgia had only Kazakova/Reviya, who aren't eligible, so there's reason to believe some of these alternates may be given a shot. Fingers crossed for Nosovitskaya/Nosovitsky that things work out somehow.

Estonia does have a couple teams that would be eligible, but none of the British teams on the JGP are.

Hocke Kunkel are too old. But I think, Roscher/Schuster are eligible? He is born in may 2001 and she is born in october 2004

For pairs, the spots from JW were:
  • Russia (2)
  • China (1)
  • USA (1)
  • Israel (1)
  • Ukraine (1)
  • France (1)
And the final 3 spots from the JGP should be Germany, Canada and Switzerland (host automatically gets the last spot if they don't qualify it another way). Next in line for pairs should be Georgia and North Korea.

In terms of who actually has age-eligible teams, looking just at the JGP, Russia has several (Panfilova/Rylov, Artemeva/Nazarychev, Mukhametzianova/Mironov and Vislovobova/Bryukhanov), China has Wang/Huang, Ukraine has
Nesterova/Darenskiy, Germany has Roscher/Schuster and Canada has McIntosh/Toste (also Perreault/St-Louis). Canada and Russia also have eligible teams who didn't do the JGP.

None of the US teams on the JGP are eligible (Balasz Nagy and Danylo Siianytsia are too old, and Isabelle Martins is too young). They may have an eligible team at home though. I also don't know of any teams for Israel, France or Switzerland. I expect at least 1 or 2 spots will be given back. Georgia does have an eligible team, Butaeva/Berulava.

There are 10 spots total in the pairs event here, not sure we'll see a full event.

Olympic Channel using Alysa Liu and Stephen Gogolev to promote YOG (but will either even be there?).


I wish Alysa could compete at the Youth Olympics. It'd be great experience and she'll be an Olympian! Hopefully she'll make the 2022 Olympics but going to the Youth Games would be a great lead up to the main event! And she could make a little history if she lands both quads and triple Axels in the same FS there!

Per the YOG schedule, Womens SP is Jan 11, FS is Jan 13. US Nationals Womens SP is Jan 23. I don't see why she couldn't compete in both, even with the much longer travel time, there is still 10 days between the completion of one event and the start of the other.

I believe Alysa has since said she won’t be going.

Skate Canada has seemingly decided to not announce the team (or else just forgot about it), since they initially said that would happen on November 26.

I believe this is true but I can't find a link that confirms? Entries were due yesterday so hopefully USFS will announce their YOG nominations soon.

I think it's sad if Alysa's not going to the Youth Olympics. As I said in my previous post, it would've been great experience - and she'd be an Olympian! She might've made a little Youth Olympic history by landing quads and triple Axels in the same FS! ❤

And the elephant in the room that I didn't want to bring up - there are no guarantees as to making it to the 2022 Olympic Games. Sadly, sometimes life is cruel in sports. Knock wood Alysa WILL make it though!

I’ll be interested to see how many pairs we end up with, since that governs how many teams there will be.

China and Canada both have somebody to send. None of the other countries had an eligible pair on the JGP, but then, the US pair wasn't on the JGP, and with North Korea especially who knows what's going on with them; they could easily have a team in the pipeline that we've never heard a whisper about until they show up.
