    Announcer: I wish there will be more swimmers at the next Olympics. Little does he know each event will have a quota cut of 3 in Paris

    According the Refugee Olympic Team Media Kit, Sanda Aldass and Popole Misenga will compete in their individual weight class, as well as, in the Mixed Team Event. The other four judokas will compete in the Mixed Team Event only.

    There won't be. The UCI rankings will be used to seed the runs.

    I have to check things when I have the time but it seems they had different ranking for each weight (I mean not a combined ranking for 50kg and 55kg)
     
    terrible news for me that Alipour is not going to qualify ! and both +61kg quotas are filled now

    I believe WKF will announce the Continental quotas tomorrow but I double checked everything, I think these guys are going to qualify but this is not official until WKF confirms it
     
    Men
    Kata: Adnane El Hakimi
    67: Kalvis Kalnins
    75: Yahiro Tsuneari & Abdalla Abdelaziz
    +75: Brian Irr & Daniyar Yuldashev
     
    Women
    Kata: Alexandrea Anacan & Maria Dimitrova
    55: Radwa Sayed & Bettina Plank
    61: Alexandra Grande & Rozita Alipour
    +61: None
     
    ==================
    so we have 4 spots available for Tripartite invitation. but athletes have to be inside top 50 in the World Ranking.
     
    Eligible for women's +61kg:  (2 quotas available)
    Marina Rakovic
     
    Eligible for men's kata:
    Sayed Mohammed Al-Mosawi
     
    Eligible for men's 67kg:
    Emil Pavlov
    Nenad Dulovic
    Abdullah Shaaban
    Orges Arifi
     
    ==================
    per rules if they can't allocate wild cards
     
    I assume that means they will award those quotas to NOCs without a single quota in Karate. because it doesn't say "not already represented in that category"
     
    since there are 2 wild cards available in women's +61kg and only one athlete is eligible to take that. I think that means one will be reallocated at least.
    the following athletes are best ranked in those categories from NOCs with zero quotas in Karate
     
    Women's +61kg:
    Eleni Chatziliadou
    Miroslava Kopunova
    * Chatziliadou should qualify anyway. Kopunova goes only if Montenegro doesn't get that Wild Card.
     
    Men's kata:
    Sayed Mohammed Al-Mosawi
    * This Kuwaiti guy is the next best athlete (from an NOCs already represented) and he is also the only athlete here eligible for the Wild Card. I beleive one way or another he will take that spot.
     
    Men's 67kg:
    Camilo Velozo
    * highly unlikely because 4 athletes are eligible for the Wild Card

    sad to be said, but this farce is the perfect end of a crazy, completely wrong and messed up qualification procedure...
     
    WKF did everything to justify their exclusion just after the Tokyo Olympics...
     
    they wanted Kata in, sacrifying 2 weight classes for each gender in Kumite, they accepted to have only an odd number of athletes per event (10) when normally we have more than 100 competitors in each class at the world champs, they put on a shameful and not understandable (and even prone to manipulation) qualification system, they chose the more than controversial round robin system for the final phase of the one and only global qualification tournament and finally, this one...  
     
    with all the love I feel for the sport, this is just unacceptable and they deserve to be kicked out from the next Games...
     
    I truly hope they would eventually understand all of their mistakes and find the way to comeback with a better and fair product in the future, but I fear that's almost impossible with such kind of officials running the WKF...
     
    right now, I'm excited for the opportunity to watch the Olympic tournament, but at the same time I'm really sad for the poor management of all this and the consequential lack of perspective in the next future...

    Anacan failed to qualify but she was guaranteed a spot via continental quota
     
    that means Grande (61kg) is also guaranteed a spot no matter what she will do here.

    anything above 25 is good. 26 is great. but it seems refs are too generous here with the scores
     
    and as I said these scores are irrelevant for the next round. she can't repeat this Kata in the next round. you can see the name of Kata next to each competitor's name.

    that's a tough draw but I believe in this tournament there is no easy draw for anybody. there are lots of relatively unknown good guys who weren't able to participate in K1 events and were waiting for this opportunity. I don't know how Brose is going to handle his size difference (he was world champion at 60kg. this is 2 weights up!)
     
    btw you are not eliminated if you lose. there is still repechage if you lose to one of the finalists.

    I think I found out. The difference for it is being the points from National Chmapionships.... I can't remember if WS ranking was already counting those points before the Worlds...
     
    So that's it, the National Championship of Colombia, put Jhancarlos in at Olympincs and Decenzo out.
     
    Because without those points, Decenzo has the same pontuation that I mentioned previously....
