Rowing FISA African Olympic Games Qualification Regatta 2019

Recommended Posts

I wonder if there's anyone left for Tripartite places? Maybe only Malawi? If so, then the organizers should expect some delays during heats/finals. :evil:

IDK why Africa was given 5!! spots per singles event. Should be max 3

 Because it doesn’t matter. They bump their overall nations number up and nobody is hurt. No big deal

To bump up African participation overall. Whatever, it’s very hard for African boats to qualify for the other events in rowing.

 

It’s not like any single sculler with a legitimate medal chance is missing out because of this.

Also, as I pointed out during the African Beach and African Games, African rowing is having a bit of renaissance right now. The quality is getting a bit better, and there are plenty of nations fielding rowers. I think it’s good to reward that development.
