Tokyo Olympics qualifying systems

Alar in the comments has already tried to clarify these:

  • AA World Cup applies only to 2020, not 2018-2020
  • Stuttgart 2019 Worlds All-Around is CI, not CII
  • More than 12 or 20 will qualify through Stuttgart CI All-Around to make up for spaces left from Apparatus Finals that don’t have 3 finalists NOT from the top 12 teams

These charts are somewhat clearer than the most recent FIG videos.

  1. Only that AA World Cup applies only to 2020, not 2018-2020. And they do not make it clear that Stuttgart 2019 Worlds All-Around means CI, not CII. It is actually not possible to present qualification rules comprehensively in less than 6-10 pages, including all possible if-thens, tie-break rules, etc.
    Actually a lot more people than 12 or 20 will qualify through Stuttgart CI all-around, because most of the event finals will not even going to have three participants from countries that did not make it to top 12 teams (if your team made it, placement in EF does not give you a qualification spot).
    My problem with non-comprehensive presentations is, that if people believe them to be complete, they will appear confused in the end :). All this is the FIG’s fault, of course :).
