the  participating countries ???

 

23-24 February 2019 African Championships - African Qualifying Competition, Cairo (EGY)

:EGY Egypt for sure, probably also :RSA  RSA (Oosthuizen, Burger) and some totally unknown individuals (four years ago there was someone from :KEN Kenya, :BUR Burkina Faso, :MRI Mauritius and :MAD Madagascar). But let's be honest - Egypt will get both quotas for sure. The question is if they will use it after possible qualification from World Ranking and the second nation (RSA probably) will get the quota reallocation.

The reallocation of unused quotas goes to the next highest ranked athlete from the Olympic Ranking List, as long as the minimal continental quota is respected. So as long as Egypt still competes African athletes would have to qualify the hard way.

 

The only exception would be if the winner of the African championship also wins the World Cup Final in which case the African quota would go to the second place athlete.

Oh, so there is something new this time. I think it's better, because the old way the coaches could have chosen the rivals for their athletes.
