Still no detailed entry lists available on the ICF site, that´s nothing new from this federation..., but from what I read here and there around the web thanks different national federations websites and their nominations, here my small personal predictions.

 

M K1 is probably the most open and most balanced category and thus the most difficult to predict.

 

:CZE:FRA:GER:GBR:SLO:ITA:POL:AUS:USA:SVK:SUI:AUT:NZL:SWE:ESP:RUS all should be the favs for the quotas, if anyone othem miss the quota here that should be quite a surprise, but for the next 2 spots I expect a tough battle between :ARG:IRL  :POR with Antoine Launay (I am still not sure if he is eligible to compete at the Olympics though), :BRA:CANand :UKR with Igor Tsviet, :HUN:KAZ:LAT and :BEL Mathieu Doby (with favorising Portugal and Ukraine)

 

 

M C1, Only 11 quotas available at the Worlds is very hard, Expecting some surprises here. but the main favs for the quotas should be without doubts :SVK:SLO:GER:FRA:GBR:POL:RUS:CZE:ITA:USA and :ESP. However :CRO:AUS:IRL and :SEN are definitely not to be underestimated.

 

 

 

W K1, 18 quotas, :AUS:GER:CZE:AUT:ITA:SVK:BRA:UKR:POL:NZL:ESP:NED:USA:RUS:CHN:FRAand :SLO are the strongest bets for the quotas, :CAN:SWE:SUI and :AND the underdogs aspiring for a surprise here

 

 

W C1 Since Jessica Fox and Ana Satila will very likely qualify in the K1(same for Viktoriia Us for UKR and Luuka Jones for NZL) :AUS will have to believe in the help of her sister Noemie in C1 :ESP:CZE:FRA:AUT:USA:SLO:GBR:RUS all should qualify without much problems, but for the remaining 2 spots we can expect some really interesting battle between :AND :GER:CHN:ITA and :SVK

What's the deal with the Andorran lady? I remember she won a medal at the World Cup. Is this important? I guess it is, but I'm not sure how seriously the competition is taken by canoeists.

Well, she has one really good advantage, the WCH will be held in her prefered (basically home) venue, she trained a lot in La Seu, maybe even more than any other non-spaniard girls in C1. And we all know how much the home water advantage is important in this sport. Personally I see Doria qualifying here (that´s why I put AND flag in both events, if she fail in K1 I can perfectly see her winning the berth in the C1 the next day)

 

+ the W C1 is still far from competitive, + it ALWAYS depend on how the track setters build the tracks, many times the track for the girls was not easy at all, I know many "masochist" setters who loves to build real hardcore, put some upstream gates on the really most difficult places which results in many girls having enormous troubles and this again will favour only the home girls with the best knowledge of the local track they trained many different variants multiple times there
