Will the South African men's singles quota be reallocated to Uganda?

 

It depends on whether the tripartite quotas plus quotas from potential athletes which have withdrawn are reallocated. Technically South Africa can qualify through the world rankings without the stipulation of being the highest ranked African nation which means the NOC will accept him.

Sadly all Lithuanian athletes failed. Oh well...

 

Lithuania has a small chance in the men's singles if a couple athletes withdraw (which has happened in the past)

Has Australia allready hinted which disciplines they might chose ?

 

All of the players/pairs are equally eligible based on Australia’s nomination criteria (all have less than 36000 points). The following criteria will be used to make their decision.

 

- Results  and  performances  at  BWF  international  sanctioned  tournaments (Within the last 12 month)

- Head to head wins at BWF international sanctioned tournaments that indicate that a top 8 placement at the 2016 Olympics is realistic. Matches won against top 30 BWF World Ranked opponents will be considered. (Within the last 12 month)

- Results  and  performances  at  the  2016  Individual  Australian  National Championship to be held from 29 Feb – 2 March 2016 at the Melbourne Sport and Aquatic Centre.

 

Without looking at results I want to say that the pairs will have an advantage while the men’s singles will be the least likely.

Thanks :)

 

Both doubles looks indeed like the logical choice.

Just to clarify, it should be Thailand in Men's Pairs and Russia in Mixed Pairs the NOC's that shall benefit from the rejection on continental places for Australia.

 

In the case the Thai pair advance, one of their athletes is already qualified, so that would add one more spot in men's singles.

 

Also, I don't know if USA place in women's doubles should be counted as continental as they actually secured their spot without taking  a place from other elegible pair... let's see what BWF has to say in two weeks...

Why is Koukal on the MS list here while he is not on the list on BWF website?

Oops forgot to note them.. If Phillip Chew is selected in two events, so Petr Koukal will get a quota. Otherwise he's not qualified.
