  1. I was not clear enough that i was referring to Mens team sports & Argentina Mens teams. In womens team sports the situation and the competition level is very different
  2. Congrats to Argentina team sports. They managed to qualify mens team in Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Handball, Hockey & Rugby sevens. Unique achievement. (missed just Baseball, Water Polo and Basket 3x3). Only USA could match this.
  3. I have posted two days ago in womens' thread, now in mens' as well: Kazakhstan was selected as a host country. It was planned that the tournament would be held in the capital of Kazakhstan Nur-Sultan (previously named Astana) in the middle of February (12th – 16th). But, yesterday, Kazakhstan refused to organize the continental championships. The Government of Kazakhstan suspended all passengers traveling to and from neighboring county China. It also suspended the issue of visas to Chinese citizens because of an outbreak of a new coronavirus spread. After this government’s decision, the Aquatics Federation of Kazakhstan had to give up the organization of the tournament. The Asian Swimming Federation and FINA have to find a new solution quickly. The Asian Championships have to be finished before the World Qualifications. Source: https://total-waterpolo.com/problems-on-road-to-tokyo-kazakhstan-refuses-to-host-asian-championships/
  4. That is exactly the concern : earning the Olympic qualification. SA players have not swim a single meter to earn it.
  5. The following countries were supposed to compete in the Women’s Competition China Japan Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Singapore Uzbekistan Kazakhstan Source: http://swimming.org.sg/SSA/NEWS-MEDIA/Latest-News/Archived-News/2019/Singapore-Women-s-National-Water-Polo-Team-to-comp.aspx# Surprise Thailand is not listed.

  7. Having SA in the OG tournament will be another negative point for the sport. 1 It will produce negative publicity for the unbalanced matches 2. It will showcase how underdeveloped the sport is outside Europe and North America 3. It will provide negative motivation for highly competitive European teams that have one less place to qualify. Once more FINA is well below the par, when it comes to Water Polo
  8. I would appreciate some info or link to the current status of World Cup Apparatus rankings for OG 2020 qualification. Also: Is there any criteria of who athlete qualifies in case the same country has more than one athlete at top across the apparatus? For instance, China may have 3 different athletes in top at PB, SR and PH (men)
  9. is there any information or web link for the Asian Olympic qualification tournament in Kazakhstan, next month?
  10. That is the most sensible approach. SEA region (Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam) has geographical proximity to Oceania and will provide some depth in competition. It will also give some extra boost to those countries (since they will have to compete one sport giant (Australia) rather than three (China, Japan, South KOrea).
  11. What are the technical and competition rules to be used in the qualification events and in the Olympic Games? In essence, the AIBA competition rules will be respected. Any changes and/or adaptation to these rules will be limited to those without a direct impact on the athletes’ preparation and will be communicated by 14 November 2019. source: https://boxing.athlete365.org/faq/ One more day!
  12. Is there any information available on the draw process of Continental Qualification tournaments? Is there any qualification standard, will be simple KO tournament and most important: Is there going to be any seeding for the draw - if yes on which criteria?
  13. What is the case if both Yang and Petrounias reach the same points? Let's say three wins. Who gets the quota?
  14. What about France? They have top team, worth qualifying. Does the French Federation promoting points collection?
