If the guy from the one Japanese pairs team (I forgot his name, sorry! Boudreau something?)doesn't change his nationality and Japan has no other outstanding pairs team will they be unable to participate in the Olympic team event?
Thanks for asking!
I think you mean Francis Boudreau-Audet. There is no chance that he and his partner will get to go to the Olympics. Japanese citizenship is notoriously difficult to get and he will not get it in time.
Japan wouldn’t be unable to compete in the team event without a pair, so long as they qualify a dance team. A country has to have skaters qualified in three divisions to qualify for the team event. So it may be that Japan will still qualify with a dance team.
