  1. It likely comes down to how quickly the vaccine is administrated in Japan. At the very least, if they are going to allow foreign spectators they may force them to be vaccinated before entering the country. We'll know one way or another by the end of March/beginning of April.
  2. I agree, but you could run into a scenario where in the last match one team is qualified and thus doesn't play as hard.
  3. With South Africa deciding to take the African quota for the first time ever the final qualification tournament has become as tough as ever for the European nations despite there being two extra teams at the Olympics this year. I guess it's slightly easier with no Canada, but still two good teams will miss out.
  4. Hey, how is everyone doing. It's been a while and it seems a lot has changed since I've last been here.
  5. That's still a preference, "I'd rather compete for Ukraine, because I have a better chance to move my career forward." Regardless, we won't be able to classify all athletes is my argument. Some people have strong ethnic ties, others have ties to where they were born while others would compete for whoever gives them the best option.
  6. I don't think there's a way to split medalists from former nations. Would an ethnic Russian living in Ukraine during the USSR compete for the former or latter? It comes down to the preference of the athlete so we can never know.
  7. I think it was more to clarify that people born in 1997 would still be eligible to compete.
  8. Most of them are non-Olympic sports. Based on that list athletics, swimming and taekwondo may have it tough (at least among athletes that will compete at the Olympics)
  9. If Oceania nations participate then Australia and New Zealand will battle for gold. Even if they don't compete I'd take Fiji/Samoa over anyone from Asia.
  10. Yeah, while a lot can still happen, Trump is currently the favourite to win come November.
  11. The qualification formats themselves will likely remain the same, just with different dates for events or cut-off for world rankings. There might be an option to increase quotas in some sports to allow athletes that greatly improve over the year to qualify, but couldn't due to their sport completing the qualification period. Though I feel that's unlikely or the quotas will be given in rare circumstances
  12. Yeah, trying to use world rankings for events with more than one weight class is a bad idea. Some events are more competitive than others.
  13. Weird that they didn't keep things consistent. That adds... to men's -67kg to men's +75kg to women's -55kg to women's +61kg
  14. As all tripartite nations must be in the top 50 of the Olympic Standings here are those that are eligible. Men's Kata (ranked 18th) Men's -67kg (ranked 18th) (ranked 20th) (ranked 29th) Men's -75kg (ranked 24th) (ranked 45th) Men's +75kg (ranked 45th) (ranked 46th) Women's Kata (ranked 36th) (ranked 44th) Women's -55kg None Women's -61kg None Women's +61kg (ranked 26th) Slim pickings on the women's side, it is li
  15. Yeah the lower half of the -86kg was wide open given that they essentially put the top three guys in the top half. Huge opportunity for to grab a quota. Argentina looked the best in the first round, but Peru has yet to compete.
