Rowing Qualification for Summer Olympic Games 2016

Recommended Posts

Based on the form that they showed today, we might as well see both Bermuda and Bahamas qualifying in women's single sculls.

That's good, it makes sense that Caribbean nations would take an interest in rowing, especially former British colonies.

Mexico, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay qualify in men's single sculls. Brazil qualifies so the host nation quota in men's single sculls will be reallocated to the European regatta.

 

1st and 2nd nations from B final might have a chance to qualify on reallocation. Ecuador and Paraguay should be the best in B final.

Bermuda, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Chile, Trinidad and Tobago qualify in women's single sculls. This means that Brazil's host quota will also be reallocated to European qualifiers. Well done :BER and :TTO

 

Looking at the provisional qualifiers in single sculls and final starts lists for double sculls, we are guaranteed to have at least 2 reallocations in men's events and at least 1 in women's events.

If qualified tomorrow in men's Lightweight double sculls, Mexico probably will reject the single sculls quota. 

 

It's so unfair that only one boat can qualify through continental regatta.

The federation wants to qualify as many nations to the Olympics. It's also unfair that Canada and US can't compete here (or Australia and New Zealand in Asia/Oceania).

I understand that, but just think of the athletes who actually gave their best and earned that ticket being not selected by their NOC's because of this rule. It's not fair for them as rowers. On the other hand I agree, those countries should be allowed to compete in their continental regattas

Okay, this must be the worst live stream I have ever watched.

 

Seems like they have one or two cameras for a rowing competition and the announcer is screaming like a crazy person. :lol:
