    And is the sixth and final team to qualify.
     
    After leading late in the round robin with a 7-1 record Norway loses *five* games in a row.

    Let us look at tomorrows womens qualifiers 
    My take .......
    50 kg : 5 only ..... The top place would definately go to susaki of Jap ...... A double world champ ....I am suprised to see her here ....
    I would give the second to indias seema n this field maybe the mongolian tsogt would also be a contender ....
    But seema for me is definitely a strong quota prospect
     
    53 kgs : tatyana in the upper draw and aktenge of uzb in the lower draw 
    The 57 : the upper draw definitely Anshu from India 
    And mongolian in the lower
     
     
    The 62 : upper draw definately sukhegin of MON ... A world gold medallist again suprising to see her here 

    Lower draw - Sonam looks the one to beat ....China always have a strong team and long jia could upset sonam but I will say Sonam 
     
     
    68 : upper draw CHN and KAZ both have really good players....edge to KAZ 
    Lower draw : all the three are relatively unknown but will give the edge to UZB as she had beaten the indian in junior asians and Kor has been weak 
     
     
    76 : 5 relatively unknown wrestlers so very open ...but still may prefer Aiperi of KGZ and second either of IND or MGL ...

    I have no idea about the list. But the Asian champions allows 10 athletes per gender so it’s still not easy to say who will grab the Olympic quota. I am pretty sure only Asian champion will get the quota still it’s not a guarantee. Based on my searching, all 2019 WCH champions are preparing for it.
     
    Edit: I found a list of 11 athletes per gender attended a NT internal competition for the preparation of Asian CH on March.
     
    Women: Hou Zhihui, Jiang Huihua, Liao Qiuyun, Li Yajun, Luo Xiaomin, Deng Wei, Huang Ting, Zhang Wangli, Wang Zhouyu, Kang Yue, Li Wenwen
     
    Men: Li Fabin, Chen Lijun, Huang Minhao, Feng Lyudong, Shi Zhiyong, Yuan Chengfei, Lyu Xiaojun, Li Dayin, Tian Tao, Tian Fuxuan, Yang Zhe

    Hasibagena and Menghejigan are ethnic Mongolian, they usually don’t have family name.
     
    Habila AWUSAYIMAN and Walihan SAILIKE are the order we call them. They are Uighur and the order for them is given name first, family name second. The family name is farther’s given name and it changed by generation.

    I think it incorrect to translate their name in mandarin romanization. It’s better to translate their name directly from their mother tongue.

    Is “The team formally known as the Russian Curling Federation team” acceptable?

    I wonder if Yuzuru Hanyu will cause an International incident at the 2022 Olympics when his fans will throw hundreds of Xi Jinping plushes on the ice.

    Three weeks after the previous post, and things went as horribly fast as they go with this....her family has just announced the death of Bibian Mentel, 48 years old. Truly one of the most well-known and well-liked athletes in the Netherlands (granted, not so much because of her athletic career, but more because of her fame on TV in recent years), and an absolute legend in parasports in general.

    Figure skating is the only sport for which the Dutch NOC has not published their internal selection criteria yet.
     
    There's a very realistic chance they won't accept the quota yet though, as the philosophy is that every athlete that will go to Beijing has to prove that they have a realistic chance of finishing top 8 in Beijing. I don't think a top 16 here is sufficient.

    I know there is a whole other group left, but unless some absolutely insane things happen this is basically done.
     
    Women's singles quotas, assuming there isn't any meltdown of historical proportion:
     
    3 quotas:

     
    2 quotas:

     
    1 quota:

     
    Countries that can earn an extra spot:

     
    The USA needs Karen Chen to finish third or better to be able to earn a third spot.

    Assuming my reading of the qualification rules are correct (they are vague enough that there are competing opinions...) Mexico is guaranteed a spot as long as Carrillo completes the free skate.

    Men's single qualification after the short program:
    3 spots:

    2 spots:

    1 spot:

    Countries eligible for an extra spot:

     
    Japan is basically a lock for three spots. The big questions are whether Italy and China can keep two spots. If one fail to keep two spots Germany will qualify, if both fail to keep two spots Azerbaijan will qualify.

    1 spot:

    * countries that have the chance to qualify an additional spot at the Nebelhorn Trophy
     
    It appears that every country that qualified a skater for the long program got a spot, the question is will something weird happen near the top to allow a country that didn't qualify for the long program to get a quota.
     
    It will be pretty hard to qualify out of Nebelhorn with the USA, South Korea and potentially Canada all trying to grab an extra spot, along with France who still hasn't qualified.
