And another thing in the rules for OQT
 

Quote

 

"The three (3) highest placed NOCs at the 2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament will each receive one (1) quota place to the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. Twenty teams per gender are eligible to participate in the 2020 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament as per the following criteria:

1. The Host NOC of the OQT, if not yet qualified in the corresponding gender through the Federation Ranking List (see above);

2. The three (3) medallists of the 2019 FIBA 3x3 World Cup (if not yet qualified for the Olympics directly);

3. The 16 (or more, if Host NOC of the OQT and/or some of the 2019 FIBA 3x3 World Cup medallist teams are already qualified for the Olympics) highest ranked NOCs at the 3x3 Federation Ranking List of 1 November 2019 not yet qualified to the Olympic Games through the Federation Ranking List (including in any case the Host Country of the Olympic Games if not yet qualified);
4. Subject to the last 10 berths in each gender will be allocated following the Federation Ranking List only if the respective NOC has not already a team in any gender qualified;
5. Subject to a maximum of 10 teams per gender from the same Continent shall take part."

 


 

Look at the rules 4. "Qualified .. to the Games or what"

So for example Man's team qualified to the Games through the ranking. And Woman's team of the respective NOC is in the last 10 berths. So woman's team can't play in the OQT?

But if man's team and woman's team from the same country are in the 16 which can play in the OQT, they still both can qualified to the Games?

Basically the host nation, the 3 medalists and teams ranked 1-6 will be allowed to have a team from both genders to compete while teams ranked 7-16 will only be allowed to have one team between the two genders. They do the same thing for the Youth Olympics to increase diversity
