  1. Equestrian FEI World Games 2018

    Hopefully Canada can sneak one in, but we should be relatively safe in qualifying through the Pan Am Games.
  2. Asian Games 2018

    Hopefully it stays for the Olympics.
  3. Swimming Pan Pacific Championships 2018

    Too bad the men's team is almost non-existent. Only one medal and several races where they didn't make the A Final. Though to be fair Brazil did make it harder for the men vs. the women.
  4. Summer Olympic Games 2020 Team Sizes

    There will also be a quota given from the mixed team competition which will allow athletes to compete in both the mixed and individual events
  5. Sailing ISAF World Championships 2018

    Yeah, only four events which will have free spots to Pacific nations (though sadly Laser Radial isn't one of them). There's still the 2019 World Champs...
  6. Women's Softball WBSC World Championship 2018

    I think the discipline will be safe until the other sports become gender neutral. It at least keeps the difference slightly smaller. So basically until Greco-Roman wrestling adds women events or gets kicked out of the Olympics.
  7. Women's Softball WBSC World Championship 2018

    Remember when that vote happened water polo was protected because the vote was by sport (and no way aquatics was going to get kicked out). I'd argue that water polo is the most likely team sport to be kicked out, not only is it played by relatively few nations the ones that do play it come from mostly one continent with a bunch of token nations around the world. At least in field hockey and rugby sevens the top and secondary teams are more geographically diverse. As for softball, they are better off trying to bring in a men's team than to try to get a 24 person baseball tournament that will likely never get MLB to agree to join.
  8. There's a chance, but they definitely won't be the favourites. The core teams are still a step ahead of the other teams and the final qualification tournament will have at least three of them competing, not to mention Ireland whom is a bit of a wildcard now that they are starting to care about rugby sevens. Germany's best bet is to hope Great Britain (England) and France qualify through the world series and then go all in at the European champs and defeat Spain/Russia/Ireland
  9. Women's Softball WBSC World Championship 2018

    I'm just upset that so few quotas are available in baseball/softball. It likely won't matter for Canada in softball, but baseball will be quite difficult to qualify in.
  10. Sailing ISAF World Championships 2018

    Poor Austria, they capsized and lost the gold...
  11. Women's Softball WBSC World Championship 2018

    Huge win by Canada against Australia. This also guarantees an American nation will win the quota (even if the US was a huge favourite pre-tournament) and likely means Chinese Taipei won't qualify a team. Of course in a six team tournament there was always going to be snubs.
  12. Shooting ISSF World Championships 2018

    Probably to guarantee there would be enough entries for the event. In the unlikely scenario that an entirely different set of 29 countries qualified in the two individual events.
  13. Shooting ISSF World Championships 2018

    They won't have to, as you said they could be double starters. Honestly I doubt a nation would use three athletes over the individual and team events, they'll most likely return an athlete quota.
  14. Shooting ISSF World Championships 2018

    No because in the qualification document it states that the athlete can still qualify their NOC a quota in the individual event. Also if you were to add up the athlete quotas the mixed team event quotas are separate so in theory you could have a completely different athlete competing in the mixed team event than in the individual events.
  15. Women's Softball WBSC World Championship 2018

    It's a winnable match, IMO
