Only one Athlete per Nation rule: Keep it? Drop it?

Recommended Posts

Which would either mean:

1- that the number of olympics athletes will grow tremendously with the cost that comes with it (if you keep the same number of entrants per event)

2- that in many cases, the qualification process will be of much higher standard that the proper event during the olympics.(if you drop the number of entrants per event)

 

1- I'm totally in favor of increasing the number of athletes by reducing the number of judges and officials (by throwing off the games most of the sports where only personal and highly interpretable judging is the competition's decider...for instance, no more Trampoline and Rhythmic Gymnastics, no more Synchronized Swimming and Synchronized Diving, absolute "no" to sports like Skateboarding, Surfing and Freestyle BMX, no more Race Walking in Athletics - well, that's for another reason, but the final result is the same), with no increase of expense for the organizers of the Games (actually, with a proper policy for infrastructures - no socalled "cathedrals in the desert" - and less pretentious people around, costs should drop)...

2- In most disciplines it's already the bitter truth...so, it wouldn't change much in most cases...

no, I don't like it...but we don't live in a perfect world...:cry::facepalm:

so, if I have to choose the lesser of evils, I still go with the option "keep the limit"...:dunno:

Well, and we are talking about Slalom, where all nations had the chance of sending a member in every event, unlike other sports, so I don't see the point on really complaining.

Giving rich countrys the chance of upraising their chances takes the spirits of the games away.


And let's be honest, most Japanese people will find more interest in watching judo gold medal match between Japan and South Korea for example than between two Japanese judokas (even if they are best two in the World on paper)...

I already enjoy national selection competitions in events where various spaniards can took a spot.
