Lithuania had qualified an entry in the ice dancing event when Deividas Stagniūnas and Katherine Copely placed 14th at the 2009 World Figure Skating Championships.[1] However, Copely is an American and did not have Lithuanian citizenship, required to enter the Olympics for Lithuania. Her special request for citizenship was denied by President Dalia Grybauskaitė.[2] The spot was left unfilled.
