Canada in Rio.


Recommended Posts

I have read through the ICF's regulations and the only thing like what your describing is that no country can qualify more then 2 athletes for C events through continental qualification. Is there an Americas specific thing or is it from Canoe/Kayak Canada?

I just found this paragraph on Canoe/Kayak Canada's website

In Men’s Canoe, a maximum of two additional quota spots can be earned. Depending on which events are qualified, assessments will go to World Cups to determine which event has the best international medal potential.

So based on ICF and CKC it does look like Canada could qualify in the C1 200m and the C1 1000m.

According to the qualification document Canada can qualify only the C1 200 or C1 1000. They could have qualified also the C2 1000 as well (if one of the athletes in the boat also raced the C1 1000).

However this has all been avoided as Oldershaw is the only one who qualified.

Not really, unless Cuba uses one of their athletes from the C2 1000m, the C1 200m will go to Canada. You can only get two athlete quota places from the continentals. So Cuba has to return one of their quotas since they got 3. So either way redistribution should result in Canada getting a C1 200m.

Which is what I originally thought as well,

BUT

"Qualification in the same boat category over two distances at Continental Qualification Events At the Continental Qualification Events an NOC can only qualify one boat per category regardless of the distance (For example: K1 1000m and 200m or K2 1000m and 200m). Should the NOC qualify in both distances in the same boat category 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 reattributed to the next best ranked NOC in that event, not yet qualified.:

No K2 boat is disappointing for men... the women now can also start in the K4 500 event.

The final volleyball qualifier starts today. Canada has a realistic chance of qualifying. France, Canada, Poland and Iran are the top four ranked teams but they have a hard start to the tournament against Poland and Iran. Hopefully going 1 for 2 in those games would be a great start. Venezuela and China should be wins. It is Australia and Japan that are going to be the really important games.

1 point against Poland is not bad at all.

Nestor is in his final tournament before end of Olympic qualification. Rn he needs 3 players (2 are on the same team) to lose at least one round before he does (all have made it to the third round).

Horrible lose to Iran in Volleyball. Up 2-0 and lost 3 straight sets. Poland and Iran were their toughest games, but still up 2-0 they should have finished them off.

Cycling is complete

Based on my reading of the qualification rules it finishes as follows:

Road:

Men's 3 in race, 1 in time trial

Women's 3 in race, 2 in time trial (wikipedia says 1, but it is top 15 regardless of WC qualification)

Track

Men: 1 keiran

Women: full team

BMX

Men: 1

Women: hahahahahah 0

Mountain Biking

Men: 2

Women: 2

Total quotas 21, total athletes 19. Slight improvement over Beijing.

Also Modern Pentathlon is finished and Canada added an addition quota. So 2 women, no men.

Canada has one of the most female dominated teams for any of the major countries (those with over 250 athletes)

With only one week to go before June 6th (deadline for the ATP and WTA ranking), Eugénie Bouchard, Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil are assured to be at Rio.

For Beach Volleyball, the date is June 13th, We are now assured of the presence at Rio of two women team, Pavan-Bansley and Broder Valjas. For the men, only one team will get is ticket for Rio, Schalk-Saxton. Unfortunelly Binstock-Schachter with only one tournament to go (in Hambourg) won't be able to earn enough points to pass in front of the two german teams who got presentelly the two last places for Rio.

Canada finally got a 3 point win and now plays France tonight. A win would put them in good position to qualify, given it would mean 10 points and I am thinking 12 is going to be necessary. Iran and China going 5 sets would also help, same with Australia and Japan doing the same.
