The Germans are as usual traveling with two full teams and this year the German Girls Team looks really strong. The boy’s teams are a more inexperienced team with many new names.
The Girls Team:
Anne Bollrich, SG Arheilgen
Anna Nitschke, SG Arheilgen
Jasmin Ehm, BGC Celle
Vanessa Peuker, BGC Dormagen
The Boys Team:
Gerrit Below, MC Flora Elmshorn
Phillip Lewin, MSK Neheim-Husten
Thomas Sieber, MSK Olching
Robin Hettrich, MGC Dormagen-Brechten
Phillip Lau, MGF Hilzingen
Andreas Schneider, SG Arheilgen
Sebastian Peffer, 1. MGC Köln
We will most likely see many early nominations this year to secure that visa-application can be proceeded. It’s a really unusual procedure in Germany to not have the German Championships as a selection competition for the national teams.
In Sweden the nomination dates are set to the 21st of July only 2 weeks until the team are planned to travel to Russia. This dates seems strangely late in perspective of what happened to the Swedish Team for the Nations Cup.
