Given my own experience with the US immigration system I always thought it seemed unlikely Humphries would get US citizenship in time for the 2022 Olympics. It appears she won't get citizenship until 2023, and thus probably won't be eligible to compete in the 2022 Olympics.

Where is the qualification thread?

 

Anyways, according to the provisional standings, :VIE Vietnam is currently qualified for women's monobob, while :CAM Cambodia is only 8 pts outside of the qualification zone. Crazy. :d

And imagine if the IOC allowed the monobob to have 25 entries like it did with the other two individual events from the IBSF, both would be qualified, and have room to spare...

@heywoodu What are the chances the Netherlands declines the 4-man quota its likely to receive?

Based on the qualification document, the Netherlands either needs to finish in the top 12 in the ranking list or have a top 8 World Cup result. They only have two more races remaining and their best result is 11th. Seems unlikely, but possible...

Yeah, we will probably need the Netherlands to withdraw. :whistle:


Meanwhile, talk about dumb qualification system, GB is currently gifted a second spot in the 4-man, even though their second crew is ranked below some unqualified nations...
