Recommended Posts

The only country whit a full rowing team is Australia. Coming close are Germany and the USA (one crew short), while Great Britain was two crews short of a full team. China will have eleven boats out of a possible fourteen.

Why is china not allowed to have a crew on every event as host nation?

Why is china not allowed to have a crew on every event as host nation?

Because the qualification rules from FISA and the IOC do not say a host country is allowed to have a boat in each category. It only says if the host nation has no boats allowed to participate they could send one male and one female athlete in the men's and women's skiff.

Well, qualification for Archery is now nearly completed (its done for the women's, 5 more spot to be given to the mens).

But first, there has been some reallocation of quotas. Indeed, Belgium and the Netherlands have decided not to send any archers to Beijing. This free up one men's spot (from the Netherlands) and three women's spots (one from Belgium and two from the Netherlands). The men's quota went to Germany while the women's quotas went to Venezuela, Canada and Belarus.

Now, to the actual qualification. The final Olympic qualification has been completed on the women's side, and the following five countries have qualified a female archer:

1. Germany

2. Iran

3. Switzerland

4. Cyprus

5. Czech Republic

That's so stupid. The Netherlands will not let go all international qualified athletes. Nice for other countries.

But the IOC and the ITF are going to start a procedure to let one male tennis player for the Netherlands (Haase) go. He has international qualified but not national. I hoped all international sport federations could be so nice. But the FITA seems not to be so nice :(

The changes in qualification hadn't been posted until today, so I did not know.

Canada really has only 1 female archer, so its fairly obvious the choice.

Can someone find out affirmatively how many Judoka we have, some say 5 some say 6.

Based on conservative estimates and recent corrections Canada's team is at 298, with provisions for at least 12 track and field athlete's that are sure to get selection, we will have a 300+ team.

Also what is going on with female MP, everything I have seen says 1 female for Canada, but others have said 2.

Actually FITA doesn't appear too happy whit the situation. On there website they actually question the Netherlands decision, noting that the male athlete that they qualified for the game was a bronze medallist from Sydney and that they want to work whit the IOC to prevent NOC from waiving quotas in the future. Here is the quote:

On Wednesday 25 June, FITA has been informed by the NOCs of Belgium and the Netherlands that the places obtained by the respective countries were rejected due to the fact that the archers concerned did not fulfil the internal criteria of the respective NOCs.

FITA regrets this decision but the decision to accept quota places under the Olympic Charter belongs to the NOC. FITA is convinced that these talented archers will compete at future Olympic Games and in the case of Wietse van Alten he has already shown with his bronze medal in Sydney that he deserves to be at the Olympics. FITA will discuss with the respective NOCs how we can avoid such scenarios in the future and will also address it with the IOC in relation to the way the qualification system will work for London 2012.[/quota]

This is why Aussies love beating the poms at any kind of sport! Guess this is the first win they have had for a while lets hope it’s the last. What goes around comes around.

SMH 02July

AUSTRALIA'S greatest Olympic medal hope in the modern pentathlon, Alex Parygin, has been ousted from the Beijing Games by the Modern Pentathlon Association of Great Britain.

His place will be taken by the British representative, world 35th-ranked Nick Woodbridge, who celebrated his 22nd birthday this week having been given his Beijing place - not from his abilities on the world cup circuit, but from Parygin's misfortune.

The Australian champion has been "regrettably deselected" from the Games after losing an extraordinary case in the Court of Arbitration for Sport - all because of the equine flu.

"We are stunned by the decision," the Australian Olympic Committee's director of sport, Fiona de Jong, said.

"We are deeply disappointed with this result and we have exhausted all options to try and keep Alex on the 2008 Australian Olympic team.

"It is regrettable, but as always we respect the [court's] decision. Our selected athlete must now be deselected."

There are no avenues of appeal.

The president of Modern Pentathlon Australia, Jason Pennell, said the decision was extremely disappointing and had shattered the previous close relationship the Australian body had with its British equivalent. "We had a close relationship, but their actions [in pursuing Parygin] have put that on a completely different level now," he said.

Parygin, who won gold at the Atlanta Olympics representing his native Kazakhstan, had relied on information from the International Modern Pentathlon body that ruled the Australian Championship results would be adequate to qualify for Beijing.

This came after equine influenza had ruined the southern hemisphere's summer modern pentathlon calendar. Parygin had won the Oceania Championships - conducted without the horsejumping component - but relied on his Australian results to underpin his selection, an approach officially ratified by the international body.

But the British association contested Parygin's selection because Woodbridge was next in line for selection based on world rankings points if the Oceania spot was deemed vacant.

The court yesterday ruled there needed to be at least two national federations contesting the Australian Championships for it to be deemed worthy of a qualifying event for Beijing.

Parygin, who would have contested his third Olympics and was striving for a top-10 position, said he was shattered.

To add to the indignity, the court ruled the Australian and international bodies each contribute 2500 Swiss francs ($2550) towards the British association's court costs.
