@dcro the qualification system will be finally approved in February 2022?

Yes. Some changes will likely happen next month, but I don't think it will be anything substantial.

Three-member team formats got approved, once again. But there is a controversy around it.

 

Apparently, out of the NFs who voted for 3-member teams, less than 10% have actually competed at the Olympics, while out of the NFs who voted for 4-member teams, 90% have competed at the Olympics.

 

So you have a situation where an Olympic competition format is being decided by small federations, and they are pretty unanimously voting to have smaller teams (and thus more nations). Smaller nations overruling the big ones sounds fun in theory, but the thing is, most of those federations are not even putting a serious effort to build their teams. I guess they are just kind of hoping some individual from their nation would pop-up and benefit from this decision?


Here is one detailed opinion on it. https://www.worldofshowjumping.com/en/News/FEI-General-Assembly-Food-for-thought.html

I think it would be a fair trade-off to have less teams, maintain four member teams (except maybe in dressage?) and keep the same number of nations overall.

I agree, I would go with 4 member teams in eventing and jumping and have 12 and 15 teams respectively.
