Hi. Been wondering about this issue recently. Clearly you need some sort of licence to be able to skate at all in all kinds of races of some magnitude. Then you have different levels of Events. This winter Soberanis from GUA competed in Inzell. Last year in SLC. The protocols from Max Aicher say that she skated out of competition at the International Competitions, whilst included in the main listings in the Frillensee races. Guatemala is not a member of the ISU. Is her goal maybe to be able to compete for her boyfriends country? What made her able to compete at the AmCup (International Competition) last season? Licence for another country? (USA?) or did she skate out of competition? Is she awaiting a "clearance certificate" to change the country which she is competing for, or a "go" from Switzerland? The ISU itself doesnt demand citizenship in order to compete for another country. Marreiros from Portugal is another example. Competed this season in Inzell. In ratified International Competitions and not. Included in the ordinary results in both cases. He obtained the reigning qualifying time on the 5k in an approbated International Event in order to be able to compete in the World Cup. But Portugal is not a member of the ISU. No? What was the case of the colombians "pre-2015" before they became a provisional member. Where they able to participate in International Competitions (i.e. not including ISU Events)? Mario Valencia changed from USA to Colombia anyhow. But wondering about the others. Seems just to have been lesser competitions for the others like Time Trials. Clearly Colombia wanted to take part on the international scene, an indeed they did. Most promising prospect today is Amaya. Another historical question; What happened to the chileans? National champs in 2017, then quiet. Is it correct that it was some kind of irregularity about that championship? Member of the ISU today. But only regarding Figure Skating?
