According to this article (second to last Paragraph) all Qualification Systems but Boxing are now approved by the IOC: https://www.olympic.org/news/ioc-executive-board-to-appeal-cas-decisions-on-russian-cases

 

Here's the relevant text:

 

Quote

With the approval of 31 Qualification Systems by the IOC Executive Board in February, the last outstanding system is for boxing. The weight categories and qualification system will be ready for presentation in July, subject to the status review of AIBA.

 

It would seem that AIBA isn't out of the doghouse yet, then.

One of the Polish webiste's is referring to the source close to FIVB saying, that the volleyball qualification system for Tokyo 2020 is going to change drastically. They say it's sure and it's been accepted by FIVB Board.

Details:

- September 2019 - 6 round robin tournaments of four with TOP24 in FIVB ranking participating (serpentine of course) - winner with the quota.
- 5 continental quota
- Host

Is it possible to change it after the IOC confirmation?

Anything that puts emphasis on world ranking (and volleyball WR in particular is very deficent) is a bad system.

 

In men's for example we would have something like this today:

A- Brazil, Egypt, Bulgaria, Netherlands

B - USA, Serbia, Belgium, Tunisia

C - Poland, Germany, Australia, Slovenia

D - Italy, France, Cuba, Venezuela

E - Russia, Iran, Finland, Korea

F - Canada, Argentina, Mexico, China

 

EDIT: I forgot Japan shouldn't participate in this.

Do you have a link to this Polish site?

Wikipedia says the same, citing the Asian Volleyball Confederation meeting: http://asianvolleyball.net/2018/05/avc-ba-meeting-agree-to-boost-social-media-strategy/#more-24454

According to Dr Eom, a total of 12 teams will compete in the Tokyo Games including hosts Japan. Another six tickets will be given away to the winning teams of the International Olympic Qualification Tournaments. A total of top 24 teams based on the FIVB World Ranking as of January 1, 2019 will be split into 6 groups of four teams. Only the winners of each group will make the cut for the Olympics. The remaining five places will be decided in the Continental Olympic Qualification Tournaments, minimum 20 teams split into 5 groups. The winners of each group advance to the Tokyo Games.

I agree when talking of team sport, definitely.

I keep on thinking that for team sports there should be 16 teams tournaments to result in fair representation. It’s strange to see that only men’s football has 16 teams, it makes me laugh every time.

I agree at 100%

 

p.s. with this groups' lineup, Italy are really at risk of missing the qualification...:facepalm:meanwhile group F is a joke (with all respect for ARG and CAN...good for them, in any case)...

I would imagine before, to make only unqualified teams at the continental tournaments
