    No official one. But all trials finished and I watched most of them so I can guess the squad. The only unpredictable part is that Cao Yuan withdrew the last trials due to injury. Here is my guess
     
    Men's 10m single: Yang Jian, Lian Junjie
    Men's 10m synchro: Chen Aisen & Cao Yuan (back-up Yang Jian)
    Men's 3m single: Xie Siyi, Wang Zongyuan
    Men's 3m synchro: Xie Siyi & Wang Zongyuan
     
    Women's 10m single: Chen Yuxi, Quan Hongchan
    Women's 10m synchro: Chen Yuxi & Zhang Jiaqi
    Women's 3m single: Shi Tingmao, Wang Han
    Women's 3m synchro: Shi Tingmao & Wang Han
     
    Total 6 men and 5 women. If Cao Yuan absent it would be 5 men and 5 women.

    Vic Liu reacted to MHSN in [OFF TOPIC] Politics Thread   
    not as simple as that. things are more complicated than that in Iran. Khameneyi has the ultimate power obviously but he doesn't necessarily use it every time. because he always wants to wash his hands from possible disasters. all 4 presidents during his era are now "bad guys". it was always their fault, not him !
     
    if Khameneyi dies today there is nobody to replace him. absolutely not. but it's clear that in past 3 years they are trying to image Raeisi as some kind of superman who solves everything. to me this is a clear sign of what's next for him. of course politics in Iran is unpredictable. who knows what will happen when Khameneyi dies . but I believe that's the plan.
     
    he lost an election. you can't be the supreme leader when you are a loser, you are supposed to look "popular".  he had to win an election to be ready for that position (in case). the guardian council (directly appointed by Khameneyi) disqualified everybody to make sure he wins. if you check the official results. the number of "void" votes beat the other candidates and finished 2nd !
     
    internationally I don't think that changes much. at least not at the moment. they are not going to start a war because they want Raeisi to improve the economy. ( or at least let people think he did) from now on the world will hear just one voice from Iran. the ultraconservative voice. but most of these guys are highly uneducated. I read from western diplomats how much they were pissed off when they had to talk with someone like Jalili. there won't be someone smart like Zarif around to solve the problems.
     
    domestically. maybe it helps the economy. (just maybe I'm not sure) they didn't want Rouhani to succeed, they created lots of problems for him. that won't happen when one of their guy is in office. but it will be disastrous for people's freedom or things like that. I'm 100% sure we will have more internet restrictions. they are going to monitor people much more. more restrictions for women, I won't be surprised if they completely cut off Iranian people from the global internet. (probably not from the start, but they are going to that direction slowly, or at least they are thinking about it)

    Tian Tao and Deng Wei are both injured. So it's not surprising that they are not selected. Tian Tao underperformed in the Asian Championships which also served as national trial and Deng Wei was absent.

    It’s not that fair as it looks. it’s humanitarian but not fairness. For example, I lost in semi final but my opponent found COVID positive after that so I advance in final. And then I cherish this opportunity a lot, I defeated my opponent in final so I am the champion. To conclude I lost semifinal but I am the champion just because my opponent got a specific virus called COVID. But if he withdrew due to diarrhea then it’s a another story.

    oh well. lots of reasons for that. the economy is sick in Iran. it never gets better. it's just about not getting worse.
     
    but these 4-5 years were 10 times worse because of the sanctions. just to give you a simple idea. 4 years ago 1 dollar = 40,000 Rials. now it's 230,000 Rials. (that was 300,000 last year) you can imagine how that affected price of everything here. and coronavirus also was the last nail to the coffin.
     
    most people prefer to take their money and invest somewhere else. in Turkey, in Iraq, in Canada. that means less jobs
     
    and there are internal reasons of course, the corruption, the IRGC taking over of everything in economy, poor management. but again they all got worst because of the sanctions. when you can't deal with the world, somebody will take benefit of that. the corruption grows.
     
    and there is no light at the end of the tunnel , things will get much worse after the election in few days.

    yeah that's what concerns me. I really don't care about these athletes . they are mostly "leftovers" only 2 or 3 of them (Mollaei, Beigi in Taekwondo) still would make the Iranian squad. but the genie is out of the box
     
    15-20 years ago it was a very bad thing to go represent somewhere else. that was a taboo, nobody would dare doing that. but then when it started to happen. it's not a very bad thing anymore. some people (who are upset with the regime here) even go to their social media supporting them for doing that.
     
    in past so many athletes used to live abroad for different reasons but still came to compete for Iran during the competitions. it's the opposite now. we have people living in Iran but represent Azerbaijan for example!
     
    btw there is simply one major reason for that. financial situation. people in Iran suffered big big time in past 4-5 years. amateur athletes too, you never see someone in football, volleyball or basketball asking to be a refugee, they are getting paid well. but what's really sad is that they are lying to get what they want. and lying big time. stupid funny lies sometimes. and since the Iranian regime is notorious (and they should be) people in west simply buy these stupid lies. believe me when they speak to Persian media they say something else. something like I was good enough to make the national team but coach was mean to me, they never gave me a chance to compete blah blah. these kind of reasons will never make you a refugee. but hey IOC buys it and I somehow think IOC knows they are lying. but blaming Iran is the easiest thing nowadays. that makes you a "human right" activist. western media praises you for that.
     
    this is political from IOC to let these number of Iranians participate as part of the refugee team. when you hear the word "refugee" someone who had a tough life and suffered a lot comes to mind . hell no. Alizadeh was living like a queen here. (she received financial support more than any other amateur athlete in history of Iran)
     
    but yes the future doesn't look good. doesn't look good at all. I mean in every aspects and sport is just one of them.

    I don't think so, rules were completely different back then. this year they award the quotas to the athletes, not the NOCs. even if someone gets hurt, the next weightlifter in the world ranking will go.

    Basically you can presume the highest point holder among all unqualified athletes of your nation combined with both genders will receive one continental quota.
