    Shooting CAT American Championships 2018

    Yeah on paper, Gil and Crovetto are next in line in terms of talent, but because the US already qualified two quotas at the World Champs we essentially have a free spot, possibly two if the loser can qualify at a World Cup event. We could see Barbados qualify normally.

    I forgot how shallow the talent in women's skeet is in the Americas. Though with that said both Rhode and English have a chance for the qualification world record if they can manage a perfect last set.

    International Olympic Committee News

    Basically a professional circuit for swimmers. FINA is threatening to issue 1-2 year bans for athletes that compete. So far a lot of high level athletes have signed up though. Here's the current list of athletes.

    Sport federations need to adapt. The International Swimming League would not exist if FINA created a league with a proper prize pool.

    Going into the elimination stage, it's pretty much Beard's to lose. Perez has a slight chance.

    Shooting Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games

    Not yet, because there's a chance she (or any other athlete) may not be selected by their NOC to compete. We should wait until they have been confirmed by the team.

    That's 3 medals, this is 29 spots, it's much easier to have a 20-30% chance at qualifying and be ranked, say in the top 40-50.

    I think you are underestimating them because they are among the best from the continent. Besides if you say they were "lucky" then what's stopping them from being "lucky" again? Again, I'm not saying they are favoured to win a medal, but to say they have single digit percent chance of qualifying as the 25th-29th best athlete is wrong. Especially in a sport like shooting.

    I didn't say they were top 15, just that once you are outside of the top 15 you aren't guaranteed a spot in a 29(+double starters) athlete field. It's also unfair to use the 102, especially since he got 118 here, more than enough to qualify in an international competition. Of course comparing two different events is bad for shotgun events as weather plays a big factor. Pan America may be weaker than Asia and Europe in shooting, but we aren't so weak that our best shooters wouldn't qualify to the Olympics without continental quotas, especially since none of the World Cup events have occurred so outside of the 4 USA quotas won at the World Championships we are more or less at full strength. Now quotas won at the Pan American Games may be a different story, but the Olympics does want universality.

    Not everyone can afford to go to Europe/Asia to compete. If you look at their performances here, it's consistent with what you'd expect a top 30 athlete would get. Is there a chance that they would miss out in a non-continental qualification system? Perhaps, but you could say the same about anyone who isn't consistently in the top 15.

    Shooting CAT American Championships 2018

    To be fair these athletes would have all been able to qualify if continental quotas didn't exist. There are 29 quota places for each event...

    Did anyone hear that Guatemala got the Olympic quota? Very good performance by Ruano, after the men's trap team all failed to reach the finals.

    Yes they will be eligible to compete in the event.
