I think if we do not qualify in women's rugby sevens this should be a scandal. :lol:

 

Exactly, don't know why people think we're gonna lose the south american quota. On the other hand, I think we won't qualify any team in Basketball and might miss 1 (or both) in Handball.

Yea I agree with basketball. Its much tougher now to qualify. Also missing out in handball seems impossible on paper, but it always comes down to a one game playoff (most likely against Argentina, who might pull off the upset). 

 

Colombia is investing a lot into their women's rugby team and they might pull of the upset.

Women's rugby rarely allows any surprises, I think Brazil is safe for this cycle but we'll see the future.

 

Brazil can't possibly lose in women's handball. In men's handball Brazil losing seems unlikely right now, but Argentina now has a top level coach so I don't know what can happen in one year.

I expect Germany to qualify in mens basketball. Missing the qualification would be a big disappointment with all the talent coming through. Do we know how the qualification will work? How many teams from Europe can qualify?

I think qualification in m/w football, m/w hockey and m handball should be pretty safe. I don't see any chance in water polo, softball, baseball, 3 x 3 basketball or rugby. Personally i am not too sad about that, because in my opinion 3 of those sports should not be olympic anyway and the only sport out of those that is really popular world wide is rugby. In women's basketball i also don't see any chance. In men's volleyball it's probably about 50/50, in women's volleyball and women's handball maybe 30/70. It would be nice to have at least two more teams than in Rio, which would mean at least 7 teams. 8 teams would be great, 9 teams would be incredible.

The most Europe can get is 6, the first 2 will be the best european teams at the World Cup, the other 4 could be (in theory) the 4 places that are given in the final qualifier tournament.

By the way if it helps anyone’s predictions GB have agreed to allow a women’s football team to compete at the Olympics if they qualify, however they will not send a men’s team if they qualify.

Did they give an explanation why it would be ok for british women to have a team and not for men ? I'm curious.
