17 March 2007   -   The World Team Championship has a new format. The top 8 teams Ladies and Men in the world have qualified for this event. On the first day qualifying competitions are held. Both for the Ladies and Men 4 teams skate together in a competition what is called a bracket and there are two brackets. A bracket consists of an individual 1000 meter, 500 meter, 3000 meter and a relay-race. From the bracket the winning team qualifies directly for the final on sunday. The second and third place goes to the repechage-competition on saturday-evening. The team on the fourth place goes directly to the B-final on sunday. An Other important difference with traditional competitions is that the coach of a team can decide himself, just a few moments before the start of a race, which skater he wants to go on the ice to do the race.
