Triathlon Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games



Recommended Posts

It's a national qualification event for Germany, maybe for other countries as well?

 

If Germany qualifies as a Team, the best german female and male competitor in Tokyo will be nominated for the Olympics, if they finish in the top 12.

It certainly was a qualification event, in terms of points, for the mixed relay - and quite a generous one, as it happens with the same 800 max points as a world series mixed relay event.

What's up with this week's Tokyo event named as olympic qualifiying event? There will be some direct quotas given? https://www.triathlon.org/events/event/2019_tokyo_itu_world_olympic_qualification_event

 

no...

 

it's just the olympic test event (with the usual ranking points up for grabs)...maybe ITU wanted to create some hype...:p

 

but if they have to face the same troubles the open water swimming specialists had to face yesterday in their test event (see dedicated thread), it's gonna be an interesting weekend...:lol::facepalm:

Does the event at least count for the Olympic Ranking ? It's a bit tricky and unfair from ITU to call it "Olympic Qualification Event" even if it is not :spank:

yes, it counts for the OQR (and with major points)...

I think only there may be only one mixed relay scoring event left, the World Series vent in Abu Dabai next march, before the cutoff on 31 March. I don't think there are any continental champs left to score in...https://www.triathlon.org/uploads/docs/itusport_2018-individual-oq-ranking_20171210.pdf

 

The top 7 nations in the rankings get an auto 2+2 athletes in both individual and relay race, while a further three can win 2+2 and relay spots in the final qualifier mixed relay race proper in May in Chengdu - the lucky top 7 will, of course, be excluded from that race, as will any lucky countries who've managed to hit 2+2 'organically' within the individual rankings  - the indy rankings will award 26 places 'sequentially' on rankings, but will a) ignore the first two for the 'lucky 7' (sensibly enough), and will also, of course ignore any from a nation that has hit it's max of 3 per NOC in that individual event - several US, GB and French, for example, will be skipped over - notably GB for example, hit it's women limit as high as world ranked number 7 (non standford, currently GB #4 - which is not to say GB can't select Non, they can, but they only get three spots, come what may) - the effect is that ranking qualifications could very easily go into the mid forties early fifties, and even into sixties and seventies, despite technically only going to #26

 

Given all that, my rough and ready calculation is that no team outside the top 7 can catch Germany, who are currently 6th, even if Germany don't even turn up in Abu Dabai - The Netherlands, currently seventh, can be caught, theoretically by Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and Canada, but Germany are simply too far ahead. 

 

so, to all intents and purposes the following teams have already mathematically secured a minimum 2+2 from the mixed relay: FRA, AUS, USA, GBR, NZL and GER.

 

The following has a guaranteed host 2+2: JPN

 

Slightly more mathematically tenuous, I think the following have guaranteed relay spots by dint of having athletes who cannot be squeezed out of 2+2 individual spots; Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Mexico, South Africa.

 

The three nations most likely to need the Chengdu event, it seems to me are likely to come from Canada, Russia, Portugal, Norway  and Brazil - decently strong relay teams, with some very strong individuals, but lacking in numbers (all 5 have an automatic 2+1 from individual rankings) unless a final qualifier makes a late surge. Canada, however, could still realistically take the seventh spot through the Abu Dabai event, in which case the netherlands are probably safe anyway, and it becomes three from 4.

According to German media, Germany is qualified in the mixed relay, since they will definitily finish among the top seven Teams. Since Germany is currently sixth, it means that at least six out of the seven Teams from World Ranking are already qualified; https://www.dtu-info.de/news/2019/tokio-2020-mixed-relay-qualifiziert-sich-fuer-olympia.html
