    doesn't change for . Ireland will have a chance if 1) India rejects the quota, 2) no wild card will be awarded in this weight
     
    but it will be important for Poland @rybak this way Albania qualifies in 81kg and Poland in 96kg.
     
    and again keep in mind I'm not sure about anything I'm writing here

    Thank you @MHSN for sharing all of your knowledge about some of these sports, also weightlifting. Makes it a lot easier for us to understand these qualification processes.

    I don't know how you do it @MHSN but big props for somehow being able to make sense of this qualifying process and answering everyone's (including mine) billion questions about it

    The weightlifting qualifying criteria are the most complicated thing I’ve ever read BTW so congratulation to anybody who has figured them out!

    no I didn't that's Ireland. Ireland is the best ranked NOC in that weight with no quota in another categories.
     
    I have to say I'm not sure at all about what I wrote so don't blame me if I was completely wrong the whole qualification process was mind blowing. (for example both of our Olympic Champions failed to qualify)
    as I said I still think India will take that quota but some Indian users told me earlier that this is guy is suspended (I can't find anything confirming that) if he is banned, there is nobody else from Asia to take the Asian quota. so the quota will be re-allocated.
     
    BUT even if India takes that one, there is another way left for Ireland, according to the rules, since Japan is qualifying maximum 4 weightlifters, there will be 4 unused host quotas. we still don't know in which weights because they have to award 3 wild cards first. in case no wild card will be awarded in this weight. Brown has a good chance to take the unused host quota.

    A large chunk of that extra time didn’t have any competition (times gained in a period of nearly 8 months weren’t counted) and it’s only at long distances really. The marathon is way over subscribed
     
    It’s the shoes

    I think he is partially right. the entry standards in athletics are really hard, but the long qualification contributes to the fact so many athletes achieve it. 
    The other part no one wants to talk about: you could do a lot of things  unobserved  in 2020 and has nothing to do with new shoes

    She beat a former world silver medalist (ex Brazil, now Portugal) but not the 2 seed. Not sure where I got that from!
     
    Has since lost in the QF to Dutch girl (who world number 5) and beaten another world top 10 (Brazil) to leave her with a fight for a medal now

    No. They changed that rule. I’m not sure of the exact new rule but it was mentioned in commentary at the Irish trials that Darragh Greene getting the A time at the 200m and 100m breaststroke was important as he wasn’t guaranteed to be allowed in both with only a B time

    I wouldn't base your conclusions on the delusions of one or two contributors here just because their boxers didn't get the result they hoped for. British boxing has little or no influence within the administration of the boxing world. What they have is a great programme and a long history of success. Only the US and Cuba have won more medals in Olympic boxing. The quality of the boxers is reflected in the large numbers who go on to success in professional boxing with significant numbers winning world titles.
     
    The same can also be said of Ireland where boxing accounts for more than half of all the medals won by that country in Olympic competition. The sport has been a part of British and Irish culture since the 18th century and attracts some of those countries top athletes. It is not surprising they do well in international competition.
     
    As far as the fight involving your countryman was concerned I had him narrowly winning the first round with his opponent doing likewise in the second. It came down to the last round and as Dragon said the British boxer just edged it on his finish. It really could have gone either way and that was reflected in the judges scoring. Who ever lost could consider themselves unlucky. I really regret that we won't be having a final world qualifier to give boxers a last chance to get to Tokyo via the ring as your man would have had a strong chance of still making it.

    Boxing does seem to have more losers complain of corruption than any other sport. With some fights it’s genuinely impossible for ‘normal’ viewers to separate the two
     
    The only Irish fighter I think was CLEARLY robbed was Michael Conlon against the Russian in Rio. Others have claimed to have been robbed but I wouldn’t agree
     
    the only British fighter I think who was given a fight they shouldn’t have was Joshua in London. He’s proven himself since but he lost that final in my opinion
