Recommendations from recent FIG meetings in Cape Town, South Africa:
only 8 teams from World Championships 2011 will qualify for the 2012 Olympics … in the past, this has been 12 teams. The final 4 teams would qualify through a different system.
team size to be reduced from 6 gymnasts to 5
… opening up additional spaces for more individuals

These changes will be controversial. But are inevitable, I think. Given the current code of points.
It’s good and bad, I think. Perhaps more good than bad.
Of course these are only rumoured recommendations. Leave a comment if you know more. Or have an opinion on what FIG should do instead.
