Not even the ICF knows who is qualified

ICF updated their qualification table.


The only difference is that :SAM Samoa got the place in MK1 200 and :COK Cook Islands got it in MK1 1000 (rather than the other way around). Not sure how this worked, but it doesn't really make any difference, as their athletes will likely decide to start in both K1 events anyway.

According to qualification rules





In the situation that a Continental Qualification Competition cannot be held, then the results of the 2019 ICF
Canoe Sprint World Championships for the relevant event will be used to determine the athlete quota places.
Quota places will be allocated to the respective Continent, for which the Continental Qualification Competition
could not be held


D.3.3.9. Maximum quotas at Continental Qualification Competitions
An NOC can qualify a maximum of two (2) athlete quota places in each category, that is, Kayak men, Kayak
women, Canoe men and Canoe women at the Continental Qualification Competitions. The unused athlete
quota places must be returned to the International Canoe Federation as outlined in Section G - Confirmation
Process of Athlete Quota places and Section H - Reallocation of Athlete Quota Places.

D.3.3.10.Qualification in the same boat class over two distances at Continental Qualification

At the Continental Qualification Competitions an NOC can only qualify one boat per class regardless of the
distance (ie. Men K1 1000m and 200m, Women 500m and 200m). Should the NOC qualify in both distances
in the same boat class then the NOC will be attributed the place in 1000m for Men or 500m for Women. The
unused athlete quota place in the 200m distance will be reallocated to the next highest ranked NOC in that
event, not yet qualified at the Continental Qualification Championship.


So, if I interpret correctly, quotas could be distributed like this:


W C1 200m: :BRA

W C2 500m: Should go to :USA but Nevin Harrison already qualified in C1 200, so not sure what they will do.

W K1 200m: :ARG

W K1 500m:  :CAN

W K2 500m: :USA



M C1 1000m: :CUB 

M C2 1000m: :CAN

M K1 200m: :ARG

M K1 1000m:  :BRA

M K2 1000m: :CAN

Sad indeed.


Hope the championships can be rescheduled in time, because Mexico's also at risk of missing the Olympics at all.
