I get that IOC is pushing for more representation and whatnot, but I think they have gone over the top here.

 

2 individual quotas in all disciplines for North America (and British Carribeans, this doesn't even include Mexico btw)? USA and Canada will likely qualify all teams so they don't count. This leaves Bermuda as pretty much the only nation that could possibly earn them (only in jumping and maybe dressage). All remaining quotas there could already be assigned to the overall rankings...

 

There are also some very generous team quotas, like 2 team places for Group C in jumping. Countries like Hungary and Slovakia suddenly have a serious chance to challenge for team quotas. Same goes for Group G since Japan is already qualified.

 

Eventing has 7 quotas at the World Championships + 1 more for Groups F/G. If AUS and NZL finish in top 7, who will challenge for this additional quota? India or South Africa?

If USA and Canada both qualify teams at the World Championships in eventing things get very complicated. There are 550 riders in the North American rankings. All USA or Canada.

Mexico is in the Central/South Zone

It's unlikely that some other countries will appear, which is a shame because Bermuda's only Pan Am gold actually came thanks to the eventer MJ Tumbridge. They had a whole group of them at the Olympics between 1984-2004, but nobody these days.

In Sailing also some news have been released...

 

Total Quota Places available: 350 (about 40% of them being awarded at the Aarhus Worlds in 2018)

 

By Class:

 

Men's RS:X: 25
Men's Laser: 35
Finn: 19
Men's 470: 19
Men's 49er: 19
Women's RS:X: 27
Women's Laser Radial: 44
Women's 470: 21
Women's 49er FX: 21

Mixed Nacra 17 Foil: 20

 

moreover, the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 will have multiple races on the final day of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The 49er, 49erFX, Men's and Women's Skiffs will do Theatre Style Racing over a short windward leeward course with lane boundaries constricting the racing area. The Nacra 17, the mixed multihull, will conduct modern America's Cup style racing over a short course that will include a reaching start to a windward mark, then leeward - windward - leeward to a reach finish.
