Triathlon Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It's a national qualification event for Germany, maybe for other countries as well?

 

If Germany qualifies as a Team, the best german female and male competitor in Tokyo will be nominated for the Olympics, if they finish in the top 12.

What's up with this week's Tokyo event named as olympic qualifiying event? There will be some direct quotas given? https://www.triathlon.org/events/event/2019_tokyo_itu_world_olympic_qualification_event

 

no...

 

it's just the olympic test event (with the usual ranking points up for grabs)...maybe ITU wanted to create some hype...:p

 

but if they have to face the same troubles the open water swimming specialists had to face yesterday in their test event (see dedicated thread), it's gonna be an interesting weekend...:lol::facepalm:

Does the event at least count for the Olympic Ranking ? It's a bit tricky and unfair from ITU to call it "Olympic Qualification Event" even if it is not :spank:

yes, it counts for the OQR (and with major points)...

points 1.3 and 1.4 of this document
