The Relay & Sprint World Championships 2022 took place in Montréal on the weekend of 24th - 26th June offered the first opportunity across all sports to qualify a direct place at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

 

The top finishing mixed relay team (apart from France, who are already pre-qualified to the Olympics as the host nation) would win a spot at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Therefore, 2 athlete quotas where on the line and it was the French mixed relay team who were victorious in the mixed relay event. Therefore GB, by virtue of finishing as runner-up grabbed the first Olympic quotas of the Paris 2024 cycle across all sports.

 

Ireland did not have any representation in the mixed relay event at these championships. Ireland's best chances to qualify for Paris 2024 will come in the individual events and will likely have to qualify by virtue of the Olympic qualification rankings and subsequent qualifying simulation ranking.

Chances for Ireland qualifying in triathlon are probably lower than in recent Olympic cycles and thus far no Irish triathlete has accumulated any Olympic ranking points. However, there is still a huge amount of time and events to go so still all to play for.

The FEI Equestrian World Championships for Dressage and Jumping took place in Herning this week and offered a first chance for nations to book their place for the 2024 Olympic Games. France as hosts in 2024 have an automatic berth for the Olympic Games, so the battle was on for the other nations to finish inside those coveted Olympic quota positions.

 

First up was dressage where the top 6 nations (excluding France) would secure there tickets for the team dressage event at the Paris 2024 Olympics.

Ireland reached new heights in the last Olympic cycle in dressage, culminating in a team qualifying for the Olympic Games for the very first time. A series of unfortunate injuries and horse retirements, led to the ultimate decision from the Irish federation to decline their team quota on that occasion.

Nevertheless, Ireland are back with a new campaign to qualify for the Olympics. It will be a much more difficult task on this occasion as they do not have the experience of Judy Reynolds and Vancouver K to draw upon on this campaign. However, the good news is that unlike in the previous Olympic cycle, Ireland is actually fielding a dressage team at the World Championships which is an indication that dressage in this country is still in a relatively strong place in comparison to times gone by.

 

 

It was always going to be a mammoth task for the Irish team to make it into the Olympic quota positions but they will have gained invaluable experience here and the team of Anna Merveldt (Esporim), Alex Baker (Dutchman), Abigail Lyle (Giraldo) and Sorrell Klatzko (Turbo) put in a valiant effort, finishing in 16th place of the 19 competing nations.

 

The Olympic quotas were claimed by Denmark, Great Britain, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands and United States.

Ireland will have another shot at qualifying a dressage team at the 2023 European Championships in Riesenbeck, Germany where the top 3 currently unqualified nations will gain tickets to the 2024 Olympic Games. Based on the result of these championships, the competition will come from the following nations:

 

7. :ESP Spain 215.808%

9. :AUT Austria 212.344%

10. :POR Portugal 210.979%

-----------------------------------

11. :FIN Finland 210.606%

13. :BEL Belgium 209.301%

14. :SUI Switzerland 207.019%

16. :IRL Ireland 201.723%

17. :NOR Norway 201.708%

18. :POL Poland 193.587%

 

 

So we can see that getting riders scoring an average of 70% will be essential to make the step up to qualify for the Olympic Games in the team event. At these championships, our team riders were averaging around 67%, so a lot of work to do but the dream is certainly not dead.

 

 

 

 

Up next were the Team Jumping Championships, a crucial first chance for nations to book their Olympic spots, and an event in which Ireland has not had positive results in the past few Olympic cycles. Gaining an Olympic team quota here would take a huge amount of pressure off our riders for the rest of the qualification cycle and tasked with this goal were Denis Lynch (Brooklyn Heights), Bertram Allen (Pacino Amiro), Cian O'Connor (C Vier 2) and Daniel Coyle (Legacy). The top 5 nations (excluding France) would secure their tickets to the 2024 Olympic Games.

 

Things didn't look too good after the speed round on Day 1. Ireland were languishing back in 11th position after the speed round and knew they had work to do to make it into the Top 10 nation team final on Friday.

Ireland continued to make hard work of things but did squeeze into the Top 10, a clear round from Cian O'Connor helping the team climb up to 9th and keep the dream of Olympic qualification alive.

 

The final round proved to be a war of attrition with many nations dropping fences and dropping places in the leaderboard. Meanwhile, Ireland started with a bang with a clear round from Bertram Allen and just a single time fault from Denis Lynch helping the Irish climb the table. A solid round of 5 faults from Cian O'Connor kept the team on track for qualification, and despite a nervy finish after Daniel Coyle failed to improve on the team score, qualification was ultimately secured and in the end, Ireland finished less than 1 fault behind the bronze medal. A 4th place finish from Ireland, securing Olympic qualification in Team Jumping and taking Ireland's first Olympic 2024 quotas across all sports.

 

Fantastic result for our team jumpers and as with all Irish jumping teams, they will head to Paris 2024 with ambitions of taking home a medal. It of course means Ireland will also have the full quota of riders in the Individual Jumping event at the Olympics as the 3 team riders will also take part in the Individual competition.

It looks like we have our 37th member of Team Ireland with Brian Fay breaking Alistair Cragg's long-standing Irish record in the men's 5000m tonight in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium. His time of 13:01.40 mins dips well below the Olympic qualifying time (13:05:00 mins).

Rhasidat Adeleke becomes the 39th member of Team Ireland with a second place finish over 200m at the Gold Label meeting in Hungary this evening. Her time of 22.36 secs is well inside the Olympic qualifying time of 22.57 secs and just 0.02 secs off her own Irish record she set earlier in the year.
Her main event of course being the 400m which she will hope to achieve the Olympic qualifying time at the Monaco Diamond League on Friday!
