Amazing story for Marie Horáčková. Her mom Barbora represented Czech at the Beijing Olympics but passed away 3 years ago. Her daughter follows her footsteps and I am pretty sure it's gonna be her to

Unless there is some miracle, it will be the first time Greece is not represented in archery at the Olympics since 1996.

 

It's already going to be the first time since 1964 that we won't be represented in weightlifting, and first time since 1984 that we won't be represented in rhythmic gymnastics.

 

Not to mention our men's water polo team almost didn't qualify for the first time since 1976. So embarrassing to see our decline.

Archery is unpredictable but greece is quite a lot away from the best sadly. Even Phillipines and Mongolia are better. Funding issues?

Probably funding issues but also a lack of interest in the sport. Our legend Evangelia Psarra competed at the last 5 Olympics, however she has regressed a lot as she is getting older so I don't expect her to qualify this time around. And there's really no one else after her it seems. We had a girl at the 2010 Youth Olympics who won a medal in a mixed team event, but she seems to have disappeared.

 

Aside from Psarra, Elpida Romantzi is our only archer to have qualified for the Olympics in recent memory (excluding Athens 2004 of course). Romantzi reached the round of 16 in Beijing and seems to have retired after. A shame because she was only 27 years old in Beijing. Psarra competed in Rio at age 42. Romantzi is 39 now, turning 40 next month.

Nevermind, I already found the entry list: https://www.ianseo.net/TourData/2021/8757/ENC.php

 

For the Oceanian Continental, only :AUS from Oceania is there (2 women). So the women's quota is for them, but what about the men's one??

Wasn't there a rule a min. Number of countries has to compete?

Wow, incredible that we aren't sending anyone. We just sent a full team to the European qualifiers. Sad that Psarra isn't getting one last chance to make it to her sixth consecutive Olympics. She had only a very small chance anyways, but after this it seems like Greek archery is dead. This is the final nail in the coffin. A shame because I actually like the sport :cry:

:ISV Anne Abernathy is the only female Tripartite athlete. I have a feeling she'll get an invite. :d

 

And she damn right should, considering some athletes who already got selected (Matvei Petrov and such).

Wow, incredibile che non mandiamo nessuno. Abbiamo appena inviato una squadra al completo alle qualificazioni europee. Triste che Psarra non abbia un'ultima possibilità di arrivare alla sua sesta Olimpiade consecutiva. Aveva comunque solo una piccola possibilità, ma dopo questo sembra che il tiro con l'arco greco sia morto. Questo è l'ultimo chiodo nella bara. Un peccato perché in realtà mi piace lo sport :piangere:

I see GKORILA Anatoli Martha and PSARRA Evangelia into entry list
