I can read it. Also @Jeschke:I can't read the full article but Christian Nüchtern officially retired. https://www.wp.de/sport/lokalsport/...n-so-entschieden-id231142164.html?service=amp
Totally agree this Nationals are meaningless and should not be held under the current circumstamces to start with. There is not even a need to hold the Championships at this point in time as there is NO Europeans coming up in January. So, why not just postpone it to not risking the health of all the people involved in this Nationals.
Are we sure she is speaking of entire season or only of the year (and missing nationals)?Annika just announced the end of the season for H/K.
She has a failure in her balance organ she says.
To me it sounds like she is speaking of 2020 only. Hopefully she will be healthy soon enough to skate a good WC. And there is still hope that they'll postpone WC to a later date.Are we sure she is speaking of entire season or only of the year (and missing nationals)?
It's strange wording: 'season 2020' as it should be 'season 2021'
Either way. Good they take their time and let her get healthy again. There is no need to rush in these (uncertain) times.
If they miss (potential) worlds though, this might get ugly and end up with only 1 spot for olympics
Which at least would make things next season.
That’s too bad about Hocke/Kunkel. Wonder what Annika means by “balance organ.”
I really want to see Efimova/Blommaert.
Oh boy. Starting orders are looking scary
No Schott. No Isaev.
Only M/D left.
JvR/S are out with C-19.
It is totally not to unedrstand why this federation is going on with this Nationals. 1 Ice Dance team, no senior Pairs, just why not doing it in January or February?Nathalie will be champion again!
A shame though that they did not postpone nationals so that at least there would have been an ice dance competition.
And I also hoped Nicole would be able to compete.
As I said in the knc thread:German Championship without
Schott, H/K, H/S and Fenz
I thought 2011 singles results could not be 'topped' for a long time....
1. P. Liebers
2. D. Wieczorek
3. C. Berneck
1. S. Hecken
2. K. Häcker
3. C. Erdel
...but well. Thanks C19
Of course I am biased here, but just some facts:Schott scored 156 at Nebelhorn, I think if one of the ladies competing at Nationals can get a higher score, I'd send the Nationals winner to theoretical Worlds.
I would guess the same applies to Isaev and all the Oberstdorf Dance teams (the all seem to have pulled out)Update on Schott
After some positive C-19 tests at the rink in Oberstdorf in the last 2 weeks, she had to go for quarantine for some days. Thus she and her team decided to skip nationals.
Nargiz PB of 146pts would have put her on 22nd place at last Euros.Thing is, Schott placed 16th and 13th at last 2 Euros, and Nargiz has or at least had a consistent 3z-3t and other jumps, which would seem to possibly allow for top 10 finish. If Nargiz doesn't win this, I am thinking she's really out of form and its going to be a low scoring event, in which case Schott would be the one again. I don't have a ton of hope for Nathalie or Aya but I guess we will see soon...
