There is no continental qualification. Best 6 at the world chamionships + 4 from Olympic test event + Host + best team from continental association that did not qualify. In this case the Americas and Canada.

That is what I mean. A wildcard sport will go to a Pan American country and that will be Canada.

2011 FIBA Women Americas Championship

Final: Brazil beats Argentina 74-33

Brazilian women earn Olympic Basketball berth.

Argentina (2nd), Canada (3rd) and Cuba (4th) are qualified for the 2012 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Women

Yes! Now our basketball team will be complete in London with mens and womens, as well as in football. If that does not also happen in volleyball will be a disaster because we are first in the rankings of men and women.

TOKYO -- Britain has qualified for the London Olympics, finishing eighth in prelims at the world gymnastics championships Saturday night.

men's teams qualification

Japan, USA, China Germany, Russia, Korea, Romania and Ukraine rounded out the top eight teams and qualified for 2012 Olympics

TOKYO — The British men will have to take the long route to the London Olympics.

China finished a surprising third in qualifying at the world gymnastics championships Monday night, the first time they’ve finished anywhere but first at a major competition since the 2004 Olympics. Still, it was enough to bump Britain’s men down to 10th place — and out of the running for the eight spots at next summer’s London Olympics that are available here.

Egypt cancels Olympic tournament over security concerns

CAIRO (Reuters) - Security concerns have caused Egypt to cancel plans to host an eight-team tournament to decide Africa's representatives at next year's London Olympics.

An Egypt Football Association spokesman said they had been requested to withdraw as hosts by authorities concerned over a clash of dates with planned Parliamentary elections on November 28.

The eight-team tournament is due to be played from November 26-December 10, with the top-three finishers going into the men's football tournament at the London Games and the fourth-placed side playing off against an Asian country for a place at the Olympics.

The teams still in contention are Algeria, Egypt, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Senegal, South Africa and former gold medal winners Nigeria.

Football: CAF Women's Pre-Olympic Tournament

South Africa booked their place as one of the two African nations to compete at the 2012 London Olympics

In case you did not know, Equatorial Guinea, one of the two representatives out of Africa for the just-completed Women's World Cup (Nigeria is the other), was disqaulified for this because the team featured ineligible players. So, African soccer (and fans worldwide) were robbed of see more of the Germany-based Anonma and the rest of this surprisingly solid team, which has some Brazilian-born players. And they did defeat South Africa (aka Bayana Bayana) to clinch a spot for it, and maybe Bayana Bayana could've qualified for Germany instead. But that's debatable and neither here nor there. This was ruled during the WWC.

The Olympic Qualification System of the Shooting Sport is based on two fundamentals: the Olympic Quota Places, and the Minimum Qualification Scores (MQS).

Each national shooting federation must earn "Quota Places" - one starting position to send athletes to the next Olympic Games. Only a total of 390 athletes will be able to compete in the 15 events across the Olympic disciplines at the Games.

Quota places are generally awarded when an athlete wins a gold medal at the ISSF World Cups or posts a top finish at the World Championships or Continental Championships - Africa, America, Asia, Europe, Oceania - in the first three years before the Olympic year.

The 2011 Pan American games guarantee a berth for some shooting events like the women 10m Air Pistol. I'm not certain if there's other quote criterias, but probably Dorothy Ludwig as gold medal winner is qualified for Olympics

Football: CAF Women's Pre-Olympic Tournament

Cameroon joins South Africa as Africa's representatives for the women's olympic football Tournament

Cameroon's women beat Nigeria to clinch Olympics spot

Cameroon's women stunned African champions Nigeria on penalties to clinch a place at next year's Olympics.

The second leg of the qualifier in Yaounde on Saturday ended 2-1 to Cameroon to make it 3-3 on aggregate.

With no goals in extra time it was down to spot kicks to decide the winners.

...

The 4-3 loss in the shoot out means this will be the first time that Nigeria have not made it to the Olympics since the 2000 games in Sydney.

The second leg was delayed in order to allow Cameroon to take part in the All Africa Games in Mozambique, where they won gold.
