Creating a thread for the new season...

The Council determined that the Skaters/Couples participating in the ISU Championships 2023 must
have reached the following Minimum Total Elements Scores during the ongoing season (2022/23) or
the two immediately preceding seasons (2021/22 and 2020/21):

ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2023:
SP/RD FS/FD
MEN 34.00 64.00
WOMEN 32.00 53.00 (previously 30 / 51)
PAIR SKATING 29.00 46.00 (previously 27 / 44)
ICE DANCE 33.00 49.00 (previously 33 / 47)

ISU European, ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships 2023:
SP/RD FS/FD
MEN 28.00 46.00
WOMEN 25.00 42.00 (previously 23 /40)
PAIR SKATING 25.00 42.00
ICE DANCE 28.00 45.00 (previously 28 / 44)

ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2023:
SP/RD FS/FD
JUNIOR MEN 25.00 44.00 (previously 23 / 42)
JUNIOR WOMEN 25.00 40.00 (previosuly 23 / 38)
JUNIOR PAIR SKATING 23.00 34.00
JUNIOR ICE DANCE 24.00 38.00 (previously 23 / 37)

Note regarding the Covid-19 situation:
In case that due to the Covid-19 pandemic an extended number of Competitions are cancelled during
the fall 2022, the Council will review the situation in regard to the Minimum Total Elements Score again
at the time of the October Council meeting.
The required Minimum Total Elements Score for the Short Program/Rhythm Dance and the Free
Skating/Free Dance to participate in Senior ISU Championships (ISU European Figure Skating
Championships, ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, ISU World Figure Skating
Championships) can only be obtained in Senior International Competitions. Likewise, the required
Minimum Total Elements Score for the Short Program/Rhythm Dance and the Free Skating/Free
Dance segment to participate in the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships can only be
obtained in International Junior Competitions.
The Minimum Technical Elements Score (not including Component Scores) is a Technical Score and
must have been reached in an ISU recognized International Competition (as per Article 39, paragraph
7 of the ISU Constitution and Rule 107, paragraphs 1 to 10 of the ISU General Regulations) during the
ongoing or two preceding seasons (see above-mentioned Council decision) in both segments, Short
Program/Rhythm Dance and Free Skating/Free Dance (See ISU Special Regulations Single & Pair
Skating Ice Dance, Rule 378, paragraph 3).
While the Minimum Technical Elements Score must be reached separately in each segment (not a
total of the two segments), the Minimum Technical Elements Score for each segment may be reached
at different competitions. The Minimum Technical Elements Score must be reached 21 (twenty-one)
days before the first day (first official practice day) of the Championships concerned (same as entry
deadline).
If it would become evident that the number of entries based on the Minimum Technical Elements
Scores listed above would be significantly higher or lower than expected, the ISU Council reserves the
right to adjust the Minimum Technical Elements Scores in order to achieve the above-mentioned
objective.
ISU Members will be informed latest 45 days prior to the entry deadline of the respective
Championships if the announced required minimum Technical Score will be adjusted or will remain as
announced. In case of the continental Championships the announcement for both European and Four
Continents Championships will be made 45 days prior to the entry deadline of the earlier
Championships, in this case the European Championships.

The communication has been revised and scores in season 2020/21 won't count any longer.

What's the point of raising minimum scores this season when they're simply going to lower them in 2 years and go to the qualifying round format at Worlds? Sheer stupidity.

The men´s technical scores are way too low, IMO and should be at least:

WC 38/68
EC and 4C 32/50

For a split second I got excited and thought that Australia had qualified two teams for 2023. Then I realised this meant AUT (Austria).

As expected, many skaters achieved TES minimums for Junior WC in Courchevel and Ostrava JGPs.

However, I would like to highlight two achievements at SEA Open this week.
Pagiel Yie Ken Sng (Singapore) and Douglas Gerber (New Zealand) achieved the minimum TES for Four Continents. So far, they are the only male skaters from their country having the minimums for 4CCs.
Last appearance for New Zeland in the Men discipline was 2010 (Cameron Hems finishing last). I don't think Singapore ever took part to 4CCs in Men.

Unfortunately, no. Because

The required Minimum Total Elements Score for the Short Program/Rhythm Dance and the Free
Skating/Free Dance to participate in Senior ISU Championships (ISU European Figure Skating
Championships, ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, ISU World Figure Skating
Championships) can only be obtained in Senior International Competitions.

Osipova/Epstein earned their Worlds FS TES min at Lombardia Trophy this morning. They already had the Worlds SP TES min, and Danilova/Tsiba have both of the increased Worlds TES mins, so Netherlands will be able to use both of their Pairs spots at Worlds this season.
