Top 36 ranked singles players qualify for Olympics. Country can qualify a maximum of 2 players in one event, provided both are in top 16. Other nations can qualify only one player in singles. Each continent is assured of one athlete in each event 

 

For doubles, it is top 16 pairs qualify for Olympics and both pair need to be in top 8. Each conticontinent is assured of one pair in each event, provided they are in top 50. 

 

A nation can use continental quota only twice. You can check the latest situation in the rankings shared by me previously

Anyone heard about Momota's case? There's a chance that he won't be able to play in the Olympics because of illegal casino gambling.

Indias second male quota in the MS looks down the drain ........................... poor year and no one in form .......................... and kashyap injured....... so It looks like we will have only one qualifier

It's official.. Momota won't go to Rio :(

 

Momota will get an indefinite suspension and Tago is expelled from his club plus removed from Nippon Badminton Association player list. Some sources also said that Momota will be given the chance at Tokyo 2020 though

Well that's extremely stupid from Momota, throwing away his chances like this.

It's illegal behaviour and I can very much imagine that they don't want people with criminal behaviour representing their country :) 

Probably the "rules" of the associations say something about athletes having to behave themselves in order to represent Japan, which makes sense if you ask me. 

 

Apart from all that, if Momota was smart and did not involve himself with criminal activities, like most athletes, he would have no problem at all. The blame is all on him, not on the people who punish him.
