Sprint Canoeing 2016 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

As a reminder Africa won’t be in contention for any K2 boats since they were the worst continent at the World Championships.

 

Also a nation cannot qualify more than two athlete quotas in the canoe events and cannot qualify multiple boats in the same boat category (eg. Men’s K1 200m and K1 1000m), should this occur the athlete spot will go to the boat with the longer distance while the 200m athlete quota will go to the next highest ranked nation.

 

Like all continental qualifiers South Africa will likely decline any quotas won here so the spot will eventually go to the next eligible nation.

Also, only nations that competed at the 2015 World Championships are eligible to earn quotas. And this sadly means no chance for Libya even though their athlete won his heat in C1.

 

Eligible nations are actually marked with * on results lists.

Does anyone know which events have quotas up for grabs, and how many quotas there are in those events?

Is that what the star next to the country name means?

Mozambique defeats Sao Tome and Principe by 0.13 seconds in C2. :cry: Heartbreaking.

 

Sao Tome and Principe were also 2nd in C1 1000m... Last chance is in 200m, but I'm not hopeful.

Looks like we have a reason why Sao Tome and Principe underperformed so much. Frustrating.

So unlucky, I think they are essentially guaranteed a tripartite quota. STP has always had good relations with the ICF and I can't think of a nation more deserving of one of the two spots.
