How is she third? In the list, she is at no 6. Even if there is one entrant per country, she will be no. 4. She will anyways be going to Tokyo and the best bet for a medal.

From the screen grab she seems 3rd as 201kg is higher than 188kg in terms of higher weight lifted.

It is because the Colombian has participated in one event in period 3. Her score is the total of 4 results. Mirabhai's score is of 3 results.

What is the qualification procedure ?

There are 3 periods of 6 months each. 

First period: 1-11-2018 to 30-4-2019

Second period: 1-5-2019 to 31-10-2019

Third period: 1-11-2019 to 30-4-2020

 

Every lifter trying to qualify must have one result from each period. The best score of each period is combined. They also add another score which is best of the rest in the 18 month period.

 

The athlete must participate in a minimum of 6 competition in this qualification period. They should have competed in gold level event and another gold or silver level event. ( The events are categorized as Gold, Silver and Bronze).

The athlete must have participated in atleast two events in Olympic categories.

Furthermore, top 8 athletes earn a quota place for every weight category. One country can have only one quota in one weight category. The next 5 quotas go to the lifters from five continents. The last quota is either for host or tripartite invitation.

New Swimming national records galore at South Asian games, multiple OSTs achieved, almost unreal. Perhaps the biggest news in the recent months.

Thanks a lot. So, Mirabai Chanu seems certain to qualify, very decent chance of a medal too at Tokyo.

 

Any other Indian currently in race for qualifying ?

The competition is being held in a 25m pool, so the times will not count for Olympic standards.

O Ok that's sad, thanks for the information, but I hope these count as NRs in short course.
