well, thats unfortunate.

 

I think the world ranking quotas are for names not NOCs so I do not think other dane can replace him, or maybe I am wrong ?

It is for the NOC. However you have to be ranked high enough to be eligible.

Slovakia failed to qualify first time since 2008 Gajdošová was in last position during the wole last 2 weeks just to throw the quota in the very last race   I swear we will not even have 35

If I can be of help Blog  2020 Tokyo Olympic Qualification https://clasificacionolimpica2020.blogspot.com.es/search/label/Triatlón  The changes of the Olympic Program in Tokyo, with respect to Ri

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.  

Just watched in our TV news Richard Varga so disappointed :cry: real heartbreaker. Explaining how he missed the qualification with that already mentioned stupid DSQ in Leeds (swimming in front of everybody else as usual and turned the buoy from the wrong side) and that finish in Mexico where he lost the quota by literally 6 seconds (exactly 4 places)

 

Now he´ll stay in Slovakia, (he was informed to stay prepared as being the first reserve for any eventual reallocation that can be announced from any time now until 1 week before the Olympic race,... however he personally does not believe it will happen) and continue to train individually but will have hard time to find the moral strength to continue his career, if it will be in vain...

The relay is a sprint triathlon while the individual race is standard triathlon. While there is a lot of athlete overlap between the two types, I can see an athlete who is better in one only competing in a single event.

 

With that said, I don't think limiting our women to just the relay event will increase our medal chance by a lot.

It’s also a slap in the face to every woman who was on the verge of qualifying in the individual event.

Worth noting that an official at Triathlon Canada was recently sanctioned due to a Safe Sport violation…
