Rankings have been posted. It looks like Egypt qualified over Ukraine in women's sprint.

Hmm. Perhaps the sprint and keirin has not updated the results yet from the Worlds. Something's wrong.

As I was going through the rankings, I noted that Great Britain has an exceded maximum quota in the women's events.  According to Rule B.2 "Maximum number of athletes", any NOC may have a maximum 8 men and 7 women. It also states that one additional place can be granted by gender only if that additional competitor comes from other cycling disciplines.

You are correct the UCI has not added the sprint of keirin points for either men or women.

 

As for Great Britain. Despite qualifying 16 athletes they will only send 15. Likely one of their women will compete in both the sprint and keirin.

You're right in that Becky James will likely compete in both events. I'm not sure that there will be too many cyclists competing on both the track and in another discipline, although there will be a few, so it is possible that one or two countries might exceed the total of 15 athletes.

Wait, so Egypt is qualified in women's sprint? That's a surprise.

It's weird though, she's listed with 200 points, but looking into the profile it only lists the African Championship in which she only got 120 points. Also if you add Ukraine's points she should have 179 points

Flipping backwards she had 80 points before the 2016 African Champs. Going backwards she had those 80 points since before the Feb 23 2015 update and the website won't let me go back anymore.
