    Since everyone seems to be at the airport, just host it there.

    It would have made more sense to construct a rankings with say your best 4 players. 100 is a bit ridiculous. It reminds me of weightlifting where they reward average nations rather than top athletes.

    Changes to the Youth Olympic program

    The big change will be an increase of athletes. One thing that hurt a lot of sports is the lack of quotas given to them. Of course some sports will have a reduction of events to prevent the number of athletes competing from getting too large. My goal was to keep it under 4500 athletes, currently 4000 are expected to compete. In total 456 more athletes would compete in my proposal. Cycling sees an increase of events (due to splitting team events) while boxing, taekwondo, weightlifting and wrestling see a decrease (mostly because those events had so few athletes). Also, the maximum number of athletes rule will be removed. If a nation is good enough to qualify a lot of athletes then they should be able to send them.

    The top 12 athletes in each event will qualify with a maximum of 1 athlete per NOC, should an athlete be ranked in more than one event they will be listed under the event where they have the highest FINA points. Qualified athletes may participate in other events should they achieve the A standard with a maximum of 2 athletes per event. 40 boys and 40 girls quotas will be reserved for nations with no qualified athlete where they may send 1 boy or 1 girl, with those with higher FINA points gaining priority. Relays will be composed of athletes already qualified in individual events.


     
    Athletics (+32 athletes)

    Athletes already qualified may participate in other events should they achieve the A standard (with a maximum of 2 athletes per event). Cross-country will have their own qualifiers.

    Here are my predictions based off of 2017 results. Note, not all events had world championships/equivalents, biggest being women's boxing and equestrian. Weightlifting has been adjusted due to many nations missing out (though the nations missing out aren't compensated). Also nations with only one medal chance have been rounded down to 0 and I have not excluded any athletes which have retired.

    They technically don't border the Mediterranean, but neither do Andorra nor San Marino. Macedonia and Serbia don't either, but they get a pass because they were all part of Yugoslavia when they joined. By adding Portugal you could make an argument for nations like Bulgaria or Jordan to join.
     
    I imagine Israel and Palestine don't compete for political reasons. I guess the UK could technically compete because of Gibraltar, but I doubt Spain would want that (even if it was just a Gibraltar team)

    I know most people are focused on the Winter Olympics, but I've been collecting qualification dates and results for the Youth Olympics. Overall I'm up to date on most things except for the continental quotas for athletics and an official word as to the top 16 nations in swimming (though that's less important). I also don't have the quotas for BMX freestyle, but the qualification event was such a flop I think the UCI has to recreate something different.
     
    I'm also still looking for the qualification dates for the following continental qualifiers.
    * Athletics (Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania)
    * Beach Volleyball (Africa, Asia/Oceania)
    * Boxing (Africa, Asia)
    * Futsal (Africa, CONCACAF, South America)
    * Rhythmic Gymnastics (Asia)
     
    Boxing should be little trouble, I'm just waiting for AIBA's calendar to update. I suspect Asia's rhythmic gymnastics qualifiers will be revealed soon. I think Africa's athletics qualifiers will be at the African Youth Games.
