    Not too many more opportunities for new nations to qualify prior to the end of this year. We are down to four more direct qualifying events.
     
    World Artistic Gymnastics Championships - Very unlikely to qualify a new nation, the best chances IMO would be Turkiye in the men and Canada in the women, but again it's very unlikely.
    European Women's Handball Championship - Again unlikely with the best chances going to Hungary or Montenegro.
    Shooting Championship of the Americas - We could see a few nations qualify. The United States will eat a lot of the quotas (assuming they are sending a relatively strong team), but I suspect we will see Cuba and/or Mexico qualify their first athletes. There are a few other individuals (Argentina, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Peru, Puerto Rico) which could also qualify.
    Urban Cycling World Championship - This is for BMX Park. This event despite occurring first is of a lower priority, but until the Olympic Qualifier Series is completed the quotas will likely be awarded to an already qualified nation. Perhaps Argentina, Costa Rica or Croatia might surprise.

    goes 8/8 for Olympic quotas and are in a good position to do it again at the 2023 Worlds. This will open things up for the other Asian nations at their qualifiers.

    Yeah, finding 180 quotas for a bare minimum tournament is a hard ask. Most sports are already at their limit so the IOC would have to kick out a sport with significant quotas for it to work.
     
    Also a 6-team tournament would be useless (like it was for baseball/softball). Even from a money point of view, sure is the big prize, but and are the 5th and 8th most populous nations and a 6-team tournament likely leaves two nations with relatively minimal Olympic interest off the table.

    In Canada's defense, the Olympic qualifiers haven't been favourable. Our best chance so far was probably in football and equestrian and we were far from the favourites, heck even for the remaining qualifying events in 2022, our best chance will be in the Pan American Shooting Championships and that also is a bit of a long shot.
     
    Typically sailing has a qualifying event by now which is usually when Canada qualifies their first quota. The beginning of 2023 looks pretty light (though to be fair many events still have dates as TBC), but there is a good chance that our first quotas may be in athletics or swimming.

    The drop off of the West Indies is sad, but as other countries continue to invest in cricket the region is getting left behind. Perhaps a new generation will step up.

    To be fair, events with less than 12 entrants should not have continental quotas. At that point you are causing top entrants to miss out.
     
    Though if I was in charge I wouldn't have any events with less than 12 competitors. If your event doesn't have at least 12 competitive nations then maybe it doesn't deserve to be in the Olympics (yes I understand that for some events the low number of entrants is due to athlete quota limitations, but I'd also increase the athlete quotas to account for that).

    The big winner of the South American Games was clearly Brazil who sent a much more competitive team relative to 2018. Despite the downward pressure caused by Brazil, Argentina also had a great games. Despite losing the most gold medals relative to 2018, Colombia still won more medals, thanks to an increase in events. As hosts, Paraguay was able to win a good amount of medals, but struggled to convert them to gold. The previous hosts, Bolivia saw a huge drop in medals getting less than 25% of the medals won in 2018. Venezuela saw large drops while Ecuador and Peru saw drops in the total medals only.

    Preview: 2022 World Triathlon Mixed Relay Championships
     
    Sport: Triathlon
    Events: Mixed Relay
    Dates: June 24th to June 26th 2022
    Location: Montreal
    Olympic Quotas: One team of 4 athletes
    Canada's Chances: < 1%
     
    Triathlon kicks off its qualification process with the 2022 World Championships. Only the winner (or second place if France wins) of the mixed team relay qualifies two men and two women to compete in the individual races and together in the mixed team event at the Olympics. Canada will be competing with Jeremy Briand, Charles Parquet and Tyler Mislawckuk (two of which will compete in the mixed relay) in the elite men's race while Dominika Jamnicky and Emy Legault will compete in the elite women's race.
     
    While I feel Canada has a decent chance to eventually qualify a mixed relay team (or two men and two women via the individual rankings), they are far from being the best team in the world at this moment and while home field advantage may improve their performance, it would likely take a series of mistakes from multiple nations for Canada to win the entire race and grab the sole quota. With that said, there will be many other opportunities for us to qualify in this event.

    Yeah, it looks like Chile will have a similar performance relative to 2018. That's not a terrible thing when you consider Brazil came to play here and won over 100 more medals relative to 2018. A result like that essentially pushes everyone down so staying the same can be seen as an improvement.

    Venezuela still has almost twice as many medals as Ecuador so it's not as bad as it looks. They are just struggling for golds while Ecuador has made the most of their chances. You are correct that Venezuela has dropped off. They are clearly a step below the top three nations now and depending on how funding continues post-2023 Pan American Games they may be competing with Chile for the foreseeable future.

    Even from a quotas perspective it wouldn't be too difficult to keep the individual event. Obviously all nations which competed in the team event would compete in the individual event and then you only need a few more to round out the event.
     
    I personally have a soft spot for the elimination race and would love to see it at the Olympics one day.

    Looks like they figured out three teams from Oceania could finish in the top 4 at the women's world series so they made a similar rule as the North American qualifier and thus they won't allow a free quota to Papua New Guinea or Samoa.
