  1. The top 4 continents in the K4 need to be represented. This is done through the World Championships The three best continents (minus Europe) will get a spot to qualify in the K2/C2 events at their respective continental qualifier For K1/C1 events all continents will have a qualifier at the continental level.
  2. No because they can only qualify two athlete quotas, though an athlete which qualified in the C2 can compete in C1
  3. I think Japan keeps its quota unless it qualified in one of those four events. This is different than 2016 where any qualification would cause the removal of the athlete quota from that boat type.
  4. No, double athlete quota obtained in both K1 events will be reallocated to the smaller distance. The pool is only used for athletes which qualified in different boat sizes (K1/K2/K4)
  5. I think this was Belgium's first team title at the European championships
  6. A clear for France and a fence for Italy for their first rider makes things less likely for an upset.
  7. vs in both genders for the Olympic quota Not surprising.
  8. They can start in the K2 as double starters. Basically the point of the boat quota is that the nation must also start in that event (eg. they can't qualify four athletes in the K4 and not compete in that event at the Olympics)
  9. Yes provided that they did not qualify in the K2 event. They can qualify only one athlete quota (or decline the K1 quota) and are not allowed to use any of the five athletes that qualified previously.
  10. Yeah, it's a bit confusing, but I think it's written so a nation won't automatically get four athlete quotas due to the whole one athlete, one quota mantra. At the same time it would be unfair to force a 200m athlete to compete in the 500m event.
  11. While true, they mean they are filling the K4 boats. So lets say the next highest ranked boat had an athlete that already qualified a spot in the K1 event so they would only use three quotas to fill the boat, but should that K1 athlete not compete in the K4 they would be given four athlete quotas
  12. Yeah, so basically, if all five of those nations qualify in the women's K2 and K4 events then two more boats will qualify in K4.
  13. That's what happens when a nation wants to maximize its athlete quotas. Though it may have worked for China (if they finish in the top 6)
  14. China has had a great qualification period. They already have 19/24 individual quotas and unlike the United States who has 21/24 this was all done without the need of the continental qualifier. The down side of course is that they have yet to qualify anyone in men's skeet, but they are in good position in Lahti after day 1 and besides they should qualify at least one athlete at the Asian qualifier.
