    She benefited from a rare set of circumstances. Had the BTF revealed a less favorable qualification procedure (like having the continental qualifiers in 2019) or if another Canadian athlete took prominence then she wouldn't have much of a leg to stand on.
     
    The combination of being one of the best athletes prior to getting pregnant, BTF screwing Pan American athletes hard and having the full support of the Canadian Federation gave her the opportunity to strike.

    Correct, as long as India has nobody else in those OST events.

    Universality athletes are only allowed to start in one event though, irregardless of whether they have OST or not.
     
    Invited OST athletes can participate in multiple events, but only if they get specifically invited for all those events.
     
    So to summarise, only the OQT and relay athletes are allowed to start in their OST events without special invitations.
     
    EDIT:. Ah, they changed it after Rio. Universality athletes with OST may start two events after all.

    I guess they called it "Universality" invitations just because of no Slovak swimmer achieved the OQT. But both invited swimmers have OST in both events. In fact 7 Slovak swimmers achieved OST in different events this cycle, FINA picked the two (M+W) with the closest times to OQT, and allowed them to race in 2 events each.
     
    But I am not very familiar with the whole swimming qualification format, this is just what I understood from our medias, NOC and Slovak Swimming sites.

    W87+:  (  will take  place in top 8 but there is no more Oceania athlete remaining, after  got tripartite)
    M67:  (if quota is reallocated to next best Oceania) or  (if quota is reallocated to next best NOC)
    M96:  (no Oceania athlete remaining)
     
    P.S.: If  is partially or fully banned, things may change as they have quota in both M67 and M96

    The shift from top lists to Rankings was driven mainly by the miracle results athletes get in obscure meets in the last few days of qualification. Hence, very high A standard and after that rankings. But, it has clearly failed because 1) still too many miracle results and 2) Pandemic resulting in many athletes not taking part in enough good competitions. 
     
    I personally feel the old system, basically top lists, is simpler and better but do understand why WA moved to ranking based system.

    If one thinks current qualification system is not good, they can propose some discussion before the document released for next Paris period. Each member could propose some preferred system including taking results point into account only or purely by best performance raking.
     
    The fairness I refer to is that once the qualification process is confirmed, everyone should obey it. You can't process this system for almost 2-3 years but find that you may exclude/excluded on the last week then you say it's unfair I think it should be counted by Toplist ranking instead of Road to Tokyo ranking and I would be qualified based on that ranking list.
     
    Basically the fairness I mean is that no matter the qualification system good or bad. It should be implemented equally for everyone and it should not give wild card for someone yelling it's not fair and I would be qualified if based on another qualification system.

    If I remembered correctly Ulitina already qualified since the original list by the virtue of 4 women players in multiple event (Lauren Smith, Selena Piek, Gronya Somerville, Doha Hany). Ulitina is 42nd in that list, the last spot. The Wiki removed Marin but hasn't added Azurmendi as her replacement.

    Day 1 has Women's 49kg Weightlifting, Women's 10m Air Rifle and Men's 10m Air Pistol. If we end the day without a medal, I would rage quit the Olympics.

    A lot of sports have bad qualification process but I think Weightlifting is among the worst. Only 4 per gender per NOC, complicated process, additional restrictions due to doping, very lengthy qualification timeline not giving much chance for youngsters and/or athletes with injury. I am sure other users would be able to list other problems as well. 
     
    But, on the plus side, this time around atleast we didn't have athletes lifting less than their bodyweight qualifying for Olympics.
