    M1x  Top Two Finish to Qualify
    Daire Lynch  W4- Top Two Finish to Qualify
    Fiona Murtagh  Eimear Lambe  Aifric Keogh  Emily Hegarty  LW2x Top Three Finish to Qualify
    Margaret Cremen  Aoife Casey 
    That’s the  squad for the qualifier. They’re confident of the women’s four qualifying and hopeful for the lightweight double
     
    At the recent European championships the fours won silver. The young crew LW2x were 5th

    There's loads of factors at play. Triathlon was mentioned earlier but that's mass start and the difference between 35 starting and 55 starting isn't that much logistically.   The same way they're going to allow over 80 now in the marathon in Athletics.  Others are a bit more difficult to keep a rein on but they've even tightened up in swimming with the removal of the B time automatically allowing A time holders competing in multiple events. 
     
    There are plenty of sports with only one entrant per NOC too; sailing, rowing, weightlifting and all the combat sports. 
     
    All of which is to say that we all have our favourite sports, and we all know which sports give our countries a better chance of medalling, but it's not an easy job for the IOC and the sports federations. It's OK that we don't all get our wishlist

    This is absolutely normal for like 90% of summer sports. There is simply not enough space for everyone within the 10,500 athletes maximum.

    this is good for me, you just have to filter particular relay and 50m pool and in advanced filters - you can set the qualifying period from 01/03/2019 till now

    dodge got a reaction from Oldira in Poll 16/100 | Who will qualify from the Final Men's Rugby Sevens Qualifier   
    At the European event, France beat Ireland by 19-12 but since then France appear to have invested in their team.
     
    Shamefully, as far as I'm concerned, Ireland have pretty much ignored sevens rugby

    But you can't change that now as plenty of countries have targeted this meet to qualify. They can argue that there hasn't been enough races available to improve their ranking.
     
    And lets face it, relay rankings are not a great indicator at all

    Ireland’s biggest hope for Olympic gold is O’Donovan and McCarthy in the lightweight double and they pretty handily won gold here so that’s a good sign
     
    our women’s 4 haven’t qualified yet but silver here shows they’re in good form
     
    our men’s pair were a big disappointment finishing 7th overall
