Home safe aboard Seigneur Medicott.
Now he will have exactly one attempt for the CCI4*-L level. Either Montelibretti (May 20-23), Baborowko (May 27-30) or Millstreet (June 3-6). My guess would be Baborowko.

Cook Islands got awarded the quota for the men's K1.
They now have four (!!) canoeists qualified.

Um, what? We just won a quota in women's C1 200m? This qualification system is bizarre.

Netball is women only from what I know. Korfball is mixed, but not open. Flying Disc is also mixed, but not open. Air Sports has events that are open.
Wheelchair Rugby is open from what I know.

Yeah, technically Hong Kong and Taiwan are first in, but since they have no hope of attaining MERs, it would be Canada as the next best from WEG.
As for China, a lot of their riders disappeared after the pandemic started. My guess is they returned to China and got stuck there (oh boy). Aside from already qualified Zhang Xingjia, only Zhang You is trying to get his MERs in order right now (but not succeeding).

Equestrian events are open, not mixed. There are no gender-assigned places as with the mixed team events.

Agreed, which is why I don't much care for events where men and women compete against each other head-to-head (like in athletics). They often come across comical and are just insanely hard to follow, even worse when there is no set order.

Either 2020 or 2021 is fine. Only standards obtained in 2019 needed to be re-confirmed.
MER status of each athlete / nation can be checked here (for jumping, only).

None of the French fencers was, of course, bought with a check - all of them are French born.
Have a read on Guadelupe and fencing: https://tokyo2020.org/en/news/amp/guadeloupe-a-small-island-of-great-fencers
And if Guadeloupeans are too black for anyone's taste, try adjusting the color settings on your tv
