Team Great Britain at Rio 2016.

Recommended Posts

Since Tony is lazy

Britain has thus far qualified

One Dressage Team

One Eventing Team

A maximum quota contingent in Sailing

Men's trap

Women's Skeet

25 athletes in total.

With ongoing qualification

Britain is currently 3 points out of qualification in men's Rugby 7's behind South Africa, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia. One women's side, Britain is 4 points behind France for the final world qualification spot. Currently New Zealand, Australia, Canada and France occupy the 4 qualification positions.

Britain will have a smaller team from London with little hope of qualification in many of the team sports.

Tony do some research for once.

Britain qualified 311 in Beijing, 541 on home soil.

Britain will be losing:

24 spots in Basketball

18 to 36 spots in Football

7 spots in Synchronized Swimming

28 spots in Volleyball

26 spots in Water Polo

28 spots in Handball

plus reductions in quota spots almost across the board. Rugby and golf will add about 30 quota spots. But Britain is still looking at a team between 300 and 340. A massive drop from home soil.
