    Makedonas reacted to Griff88 in Archery WA Final Olympic Games Qualifier 2021   
    At least that person resigned..
     
    Our taekwondo team wasn't able to go to Asian Qualifiers because the guy in charge did not register them in the online registration system (but applied for visa and hotel lol). So after the poor athletes arrived in Jordan, but they weren't allowed to compete.
     
    To make it more ridiculous, one official from the Ministry of Youth and Sports complained to the Korean ambassador in Indonesia and asking him to make World Taekwondo president intervene and allow the Indonesian athletes to compete

    Well I wasn't totally wrong here. Today it was revealed the reason why our archers weren't originally on the entry list.
     
    Someone in the federation made an error and signed them up for the wrong event 
    This person has now resigned, but caused a lot of trouble to our archers who didn't know until a few hours before their flight whether or not they were going to be able to compete in Paris. And one of them ended up qualifying. Imagine if she didn't get the chance because some stupid lady who works for the federation (and probably never touched an archery bow in her entire life) accidentally registered them for a World Cup event instead of the World Olympic Qualifier. Such a careless and ignorant mistake.

    So incredible for  Evangelia Psarra to make it once again! She is going to her sixth Olympics! Only two other Greeks have also gone to six Olympics (one in sailing and one in shooting).
     
    In a sport where Greece is basically nonexistent, she has been flying our flag for two decades. Really proud of her. I didn't expect her to make it this time but so happy she did. She is 47 years old and made her Olympic debut in Sydney when she was 26 and never missed the Olympics since. I think she said that if she makes it to Tokyo this will be the last time for her. What a nice story.

    For Petrounias this will be harder than the Olympic final...it would be really amazing if he qualifies. Greece has had enough disappointments during this qualification period in various sports, really hope tomorrow won't be another one...

    Would have been really nice for FINA and the South African Olympic committee to not put the Greek team through an emotional rollercoaster.

    More WTA drama in Ostapenko vs Kasatkina QF. Lineswoman snitched on Ostapenko for telling "bitch" after a bad point.
     
    Then chair umpire fluffed the score in the final game in Ostapenko's favor (called 15-15 when it should have been 0-30).
     
    Ostapenko won the match in three sets.

    According to this, there is still a chance that South Africa's women will withdraw and Greece will take their spot. The FINA president informed Greece about it during the World League super final which was just held in Athens. 
     
    So now the Greek girls are still training (in a combined training camp with Canada). We even got two girls who didn't compete in the World League to come back to the team for this training camp.

    They can’t surely add them after next weekend.? Athletes will be trying their utmost to earn ranking points and then to find the lose a spot after all events are over? That would not be fair. 
    Also some countries won’t bother nominating anybody in Athletics

    Sad news.

     Martina Dominici has tested positive for a banned substance during the Pan American Championships.

    She will probably miss Tokyo and lose the medals she earned at the Pan Am Champs. I'll have to check whether  will still be able to qualify another gymnast to Tokyo via World Championships. If this is not possible, then I believe  Argyro Afrati will qualify to Tokyo because  Maria Kharenkova will probably refuse the quota since she's recovering from injury.

    I think it's the tension surrounding the question of the Irish weightlifting quota that has driven the debate on to a slightly less contentious issue. 😊

    Same with Ireland. Three now outside rankings and three more right on the edge. Very unfair to athletes to drop this on them with a week to go.

    Huge kudos to Iran for holding their own.
     
    This dual flag bearer idea really just removes individuality of the athletes and reduces them to their gender... It's patronizing and presumptuous. And all that to appease that tiny minority which obsesses over stuff like the exact gender count.
