Summer Olympic Games 2020 Qualification Systems

Recommended Posts

This also means we will get changed qualification systems for all sports and enjoy this whole process for another year:thumbup: at least something good...

 

It will be the same qualification process surely? Just events and tournaments not held in 2020 are held in 2021. All rankings will be frozen until 2021. Anyone who has already qualifies remains qualified. Seems only fair way.

Karate already closed (one week ago) the ranking that was supposed to be closed on 6th April, so it's not like everywhere it will be this way. Canoe also made the decision they will change the system, but no final decision was done and thanks to that it might only end with postponing the qualifying event to 2021. But it all depends on the date of the Olympics itself - if it will be Summer 2021, the no problem - it will be done more a less as it was supposed to this year. But if it will be earlier, like spring, then the qualifier that was to be held in May 2020 cannot be in May 2021 but let's say March 2021. That already changes a lot in preparations (which we don't know when the athletes will be ready to start). Also for the rankings - there was to be three more World Cups and its Final in Modern Pentathlon. So there might either less time for rest between the World Cups or less events aka less chance to get points.

There will definitely be some adjustements to the systems and will be interesting to see which competition will become the qualification ones. Even those systems, based on rankings, will have to adjust & I expect new rules on which athletes are eligable to compete, new deadlines....

The qualification formats themselves will likely remain the same, just with different dates for events or cut-off for world rankings.

 

There might be an option to increase quotas in some sports to allow athletes that greatly improve over the year to qualify, but couldn't due to their sport completing the qualification period. Though I feel that's unlikely or the quotas will be given in rare circumstances

i think all qualification systems should remain the same , that'll be fair enough for all athletes , only those direct qualification tournaments which were cancelled should be rescheduled for another dates whether on the same country or another

I think thats highly unlikely as its still the 2020 Olympics not the 2021 Olympics. obviously some atlethes and swimmers will improve in the next year and make the time but theres no legislating for that.

Football rules do not mention the age of the players, it only says that "All players participating in the preliminary and final competitions of the Tournament shall be born on or after 1 January 1997", so everybody who was eligible to play this year, will be eligible to play in 2021.
