"All athletes who qualified for the Olympics in 2020 will remain qualified for 2021" , the IOC had said...


One month later: "Sorry that was a joke haha".


Just to remind - WKF announced the quotas BEFORE the scheduled day of closing the ranking, because they couldn't have held the remaining ranking events by then, but didn't know yet, the Olympics will be postponed and there will be time for that later. I think it does have a certain meaning in that.

WKF is extremely quick in updating the ranking   I made some calculations, this is the list of athletes with realistic chance (even small chance) to qualify directly to the Olympics. I remov

and for women   Women's Kata Sandra Sanchez - 10582.5 Q Viviana Bottaro - 6585 Q Grace Lau - 5790 Sakura Kokumai - 5197.5 Dilara Eltemur - 3667.5    

WKF updated the Olympic ranking. we have lots of changes because of the continental championships. someone corrects me if I'm wrong but it seems right now only except Oceania we have continental Champ

First, making only the 2021 European Championships as part of the qualification process does not make sense - either the ranking period is extended for all continents (in that case also previous results in other continental championships, 2019 or 2020, would be removed) or it's not extended at all. The purpose of including 2019 Euro/African/PanAm Championships in the ranking since the beginning was to be sure to include a continental result in the case the 2020 editions were not held in time. This is exactly what happened but now they changed their mind.

Secondly, when an IF officially communicates to the public and the member federations the list of qualified athletes and there's no calculation or procedure mistake, they shouldn't change the process anymore - no one forced them to decide but they did.
