  1. I believe Argentina is qualified in mixed Rifle 10m, as the male guy who got the Quota in 3 positions has the MQS for both.
  2. Yeah, I put the sailing ones just out of respect to the defending champions and the sport (?). Racquetball and pentathlon I don´t see it, maybe tennis, but who knows. Shooting could be, but USA came with the full team bar Hancock.
  3. Late to the party, but just for fun some gold predictions. Safe bets: Basketball men, Basque Pelota x2 (both Trinquete), Boxing (L. Sánchez), Canoeing (Vernice), Field Hockey (2), Judo (Pareto), Rowing (M2-), Rugby men, Sailing x2 (Lightning, Snipe), Skating (Artistic x2), Softball (men), Surf (longboard men), Swimming x3 (Pignatiello 400, 800, 1500). Contenders: Basque Pelota (Fronton Cuero), Beach Volleyball (Women), Boxing (D. Sánchez), Canoeing (K2 1000, K4 500), Cycling (Molina in BMX, Soto in MTB), Handball (men), Karate (Y. Benítez), Rowing (M2x, M4x, M4-, LW1x, LM2x), Sailing (RS:X men, both 49er, both Laser, Nacra 17), Shooting (F. Gil), Taekwondo (L. Guzmán), Waterski (E. De Armas). I´ll go optmimistic and say 25.
  4. Why that? What about the other disciplines?
  5. The ones who should have a medal as a main and realistic goal: Paula Pareto (judo -48), Lange/Carranza (Nacra 17), both hockey teams. The ones who can dream with some hopes of it (a couple not yet qualified): Federico Gil (skeet), Lucas Guzmán (TKD -58), Delfina Pignatiello (swimming, 1500 free), Rugby 7 men, Maybe if the planets align (again, if qualified): basketball and volleyball men, tennis men (?), surf men (??), football men (???), another saling boat, boxing women and BMX men. Overall, it´s always between 3-6.
  6. Also, when the decision was made I don´t think there were real expectations that she would be doing potential world medal times at this point of the season.
  7. #3 in the world this season, behind Ledecky and Wang. And she is not going to Gwangju
  8. Agustina Apaza and Sofía Gómez Villafañe. http://www.ciclismoxxi.com.ar/el-mtb-confirmo-su-equipo-para-el-panamericano-de-lima/
  9. Delfina Pignatiello W 800m Free (8:24.33) in Canet, That´s a south american record. And she did it with her airpods on
  10. Only Del Potro, if he plays, but tennis starts the next day, so no.
  11. Isn´t there a continental qualifying championship? She won silver last year at the PanAm. I´m not saying she will qualify, but if a couple of american climbers win quotas in the intercontinental qualifiers, she has a shot.
  12. Valentina Aguado has a shot in sport climbing IMO.
  13. Don´t rush. Remember Toronto
  14. Epic game. But for some reason I think neither will make the Super Bowl.
  15. Pretty much agree with this. Not that confident with so many in athletics (will have to wait for standards) and swimming (right now we would have one swimmer with A mark I think) and I´m quite pessimistic about teams. Football who knows, basketball will be hard, handball is always a coin toss... I only see rugby and both hockey teams as sure things.
  16. Between 2-4. Judo, hockey and saling the usual suspects, with tennis and other teams sports there too. Let´s see what happens two years from now, but with the current economic crisis hitting the budget and the YOG class developing for the next cycles I don´t expect big things in Tokyo.
  17. Hi, used to follow the blog before Rio and a couple of days ago found the forum while searching for Tokyo qualifying systems. Decided to stop lurking and here I am
