2014 Sochi Olympics Winter Games - Figure skating schedule


Figure skating at the 2014 Winter Olympics will be held at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi, Russia. The five events are scheduled for February 6–22, 2014.

For the first time at the Winter Olympics a team event in figure skating will be held. For this reason the competition will start a day before the Opening ceremony. This marks the first time in the history of the Winter Olympics that figure skating competitions will be held before the Opening ceremony.

A total of 148 quota spots are available to athletes to compete at the games. There is no individual athlete qualification to the Olympics; the choice of which athlete(s) to send to the Games is at the discretion of each country's National Olympic Committee. Each country is allowed a maximum of three entries per discipline A maximum of 18 athletes can be entered by a National Olympic Committee, with a maximum of 9 men or 9 women. An additional six quota spots were made available for the team event.

Countries were able to qualify entries to the 2014 Winter Olympics in two ways. Most spots were allocated based on the results of the 2013 World Championships. At the event, countries were able to qualify up to three entries in each discipline according to the usual system in place; countries which earned multiple spots to the Olympics also earned multiple spots to the 2014 World Championships. Every discipline qualified separately. The host country, if it failed to qualify in a discipline, could receive one entry. The remainder of the spots were filled at the 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy in late September 2013. Countries which had already earned an entry to the Olympics were not allowed to qualify more entries at this final qualifying competition. Unlike at the World Championships, where countries could qualify more than one spot depending on the placement of the skater, at the Nebelhorn Trophy countries could earn only one spot per discipline.

If a country declined to use one or more of its qualified spots, the vacated spot was awarded using the results of the Nebelhorn Trophy in descending order of placement.

For the team trophy, scores from the 2012–13 and 2013–14 seasons were tabulated to establish the ten top nations. Each nation compiled a score from their top performers in each of the four disciplines. The Grand Prix Final, taking place in early December 2013, was the final event to affect the Team Trophy score.

  2. Grazie Mille Laura ! Speriamo che funzionino i link della Tv Russa - visto che io non ho Sky e Cielo non trasmette nulla della giornata del 6 Febbraio la gara a squadre
    Iniziando le sue trasmissioni il 7 - dicono che copriranno tutti gli eventi in cui ci siano italiani ;-) speriamo perchè nel pattinaggio - ci sono molti Azzurri !!?

  3. Speriamo! Sto selezionando più emittenti possibile proprio per dare a tutti coloro che, come noi, non hanno Sky più possibilità di trovare uno stream funzionante.
    Che Cielo li copra non ne ho dubbi, è sull'accuratezza della copertura che ho dei dubbi. Molto probabilmente faranno dei rapidissimi highlights...
    Non ci resta che incrociare le dita!
