  1. Sadly, he fell victim to COVID-19. May he rest in peace.

  3. The International Canoe Federation has announced all ICF and international canoeing competitions scheduled between now and the end of May will be postponed or cancelled because of ongoing concerns about the coronavirus COVID-19. The ICF will continue implementing its coronavirus contingency plans to deal with the cancellation and postponement of Tokyo 2020 sprint, slalom and paracanoe qualifying events. The International Olympic Committee reiterated its commitment during a teleconference on Tuesday to staging this year’s Olympics, starting Friday July 24, but expressed its support for sports like canoeing which still has Olympic quotas to fill. The situation remains extremely fluid, with several key events already cancelled or postponed. The ICF and host organisers have now cancelled all continental qualifiers in sprint and slalom. The canoe sprint and paracanoe world Olympic qualifiers set down for Duisburg, Germany, will not be able to proceed on the weekend of May 21-24. However, organisers and the ICF are looking at the possibility of staging the event at the end of June. A decision regarding this will be made by the end of April, but the ICF will be guided by the ability of all athletes to take part in the competition. Under current international travel restrictions, many athletes are not able to cross borders. The ICF will use world rankings to allocate quotas for canoe slalom, and is currently in discussion with the IOC on using international results to determine which countries are allocated the remaining sprint Tokyo 2020 quotas. This decision will be taken by early April. If Duisburg is unable to proceed, the results from the 2019 ICF paracanoe world championships will be used to determine final Paralympic quota allocations, dependent on approval from the International Paralympic Committee. The IOC has expressed full confidence that the Olympics will proceed on time, and the ICF is working hard to ensure it is able to fill all available quota positions in the fairest and most appropriate manner. The ICF shares the disappointment of the canoeing community with the disruptions to the programme, but is acting to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone involved with our events. The ICF and competition organisers have also been forced to make changes for several non-Olympic discipline events. The latest competition status, current as of March 18, 2020, is as follows; Global statement: All ICF competitions and international competitions are postponed or cancelled from now until Sunday 31 May inclusive. For all ICF competitions after 1st June 2020, the ICF and host organisers are monitoring the situation daily, and will update as soon as new information comes to hand.

  4. The Asia and Oceania Boxing OQT is scheduled on March 3 to 11, not February.
  5. How about shooting? Did ISSF officially confirm and release its qualification criteria for Tokyo 2020?
  6. Where did you get the information about the qualification criteria in sailing for Tokyo 2020? Source please?
  7. Hi Mateusz, I've noticed that you named the flagbearers without any citation or source? How did you know this?
  8. Before the ceremony. It happened at the previous Games before.
  9. Because we still have one more day to spot and search for the most direct sources and cite them instantly on the forum. For example, Germany will announce its flag bearer within today. Surely, the sources related to the announcement will be identified and trending. Once we found it, we place it here.
  10. Most likely. Tomorrow morning (Brazil time). Dunno what hour. But I assure the IOC will publish the list on that day itself. Patience is a virtue.
