Indeed, Mexico could threat Brazil for a team quota place at the Pan Ams next year, as they are working nicely on getting respectable big tour combinations in the mix.
Turns out that replacing small tour with a mixture of small and big (Olympic level) tours at the Pan Ams has been a great success. Instead of participating at a couple of small tour internationals here and there, now all have some very good big tour combinations. are attempting to follow their steps, but their scores are not at the qualification requirements level yet.
Also, I suspect that might too get some big tour combinations before the Pan Ams next year, so it could get quite intriguing Olympic qualification-wise.
Thankfully the days when the likes of Colombia qualified a full team for the Olympics based on Pan Am small tour results are over. That happened before London 2012 and they ended up using 0/4 places as nobody was able to make transition and reach the minimum requirements during the short time frame.
