Archery Qualification for Summer Olympic Games 2016

Recommended Posts

In the internal Dutch selections, Sjef van der Berg is so far on top. Rick van der Ven is in second and Mitch Dielemans third and they have quite a big lead on the other two archers (there's three places available, so the top-3 goes to Rio). They had three competitions in the Netherlands in the past days and there are two World Cups and the European Championships which will count as well.

Results for the Oceania Qualifiers are still unknown. According to a news article Fiji's Robert Elder and Tonga's Sifa Taumopepeau won the men's quotas while Australia's Semra Ferguson and Tonga's Lusitania Tatafu won the women's quotas.

Awesome, he'll be 55 in Rio :d 

 

He competed at 43 in the Athens Olympics, finished 62nd in the ranking round ahead of only the atletes of Laos and Mauritius. One place above him there by the way was Elder, Fiji's qualifier of this week :d 

 

Also, Tatafu will be Tonga's first ever woman in Olympic archery :)

Tonga is doing a good job, possibly on the road for their biggest team ever. They already have 3 athletes (without swimming and athletics). Their record is 7 (from their first Olympics in 1984). In 2008 and 2012 they had only 3.

At best they will tie their record of seven. The only other sport that they can realistically qualify in is rugby sevens. Maybe a tripartite in weightlifting is possible too.

Maybe also a tripartite in boxing, they competed at Asian/Oceanian qualifications.

Quite true, Tonga has had a rich history in the sport, it is also the sport in which they won their only medal.
