sad to be said, but this farce is the perfect end of a crazy, completely wrong and messed up qualification procedure...   WKF did everything to justify their exclusion just after the Tokyo O

Thank you @MHSN for sharing all of your knowledge about some of these sports, also weightlifting. Makes it a lot easier for us to understand these qualification processes.

I thought that was an Australian female tennis player....

:GRE Greek team :GRE

 

Men:

Panagiotis Kapsalis (Men's Kata)

Georgios Tzanos (Men's +75 kg)

Christos-Stefanos Xenos (Men's -67 kg)

Dionysios Xenos (Men's -75 kg)

 

Women:

Eleni Chatziliadou (Women's +61 kg)

Vasiliki Panetsidou (Women's -61 kg)

Maria Stoli (Women's -55 kg)

Georgia Xenou (Women's Kata)

 

Chatziliadou is the defending world champion. She only didn't qualify by ranking because she had some injury problems and missed a lot of events. Now she just came back and won bronze at the European Championships this year. She won medals at the last two World Championships and the last three European Championships. Really hoping she can qualify because she's a big medal hope for us in Tokyo, and obviously this will be her only chance for the Olympics as karate won't be part of the Olympic programme again.

 

With the Xenos brothers, it's a big risk. Christos usually competes in -60 and Dionysios in -67. Dionysios just won gold at the European Championships in -67. I understand our federation wanted both to have chances to qualify, but having them both move up in weight classes is risky to try to qualify both when Dionysios alone in -67 would've had a better chance even if it meant Christos couldn't participate.

 

Panetsidou has competed her whole career in -68 kg and now lost weight to compete in -61 kg. Just a few weeks ago she won silver at the European Championships in -68 kg so it will definitely be interesting to see how she does in this new weight category.

 

Tzanos has a few European titles and a lot of other medals from the European Championships but really did nothing in recent years until he won bronze at the European Championships this year.

 

Kapsalis, Stoli, and Xenou I think have no chances unfortunately, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong about them :d

 

It would be a massive failure if we don't qualify anyone. There are so many athletes at this event that it's going to be hard for us to really expect 3+ quotas imo. If we get 1-2 I'll be satisfied.

notable absence, Kazakhstan has chosen Nurkanat Azhikanov instead of the well known and higher ranked Yermek Ainazarov in the men's -75kg...

 

imho, this tournament is going to be absolutely unpredictable, but the women's -55kg and +61kg classes are even ,ore than that, they will be an absolute mess...there are at least 12/15 girls in each of the 2 classes with real chances to make it...and only 3 spots up for grabs...:facepalm:

Karate really should have been a 16 person tournament. I know the IOC wants to keep quotas tight, but it just doesn't feel like the tournament will do the sport justice.

This will actually still be one of the larger field sizes Karate has had at any multi-sports games. Generally, Karate only gets 8 athletes per event. This is true for the World Games, Pan Am Games, European Games, and Central American and Caribbean Games. The only multi-sports games that come to mind with more athletes than that are those that still have unrestricted entry limits (Asian Games, African Games, and maybe Mediterranean Games).

For me, the competition format is the only real problem.

 

Single bracket tournaments with 10 athletes? That's a joke right there. Should have been two pools of five athletes each.
