new Olympic qualification for Tokyo

May 9th we’ll learn more about how FIG World Cup meets will lead to Olympic qualification.

Silacci went on to say that the new rules will not affect the tournaments within the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, and will come into effect at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Silacci also stressed that time will be necessary to adjust and to test all the new procedures. …
