Since Brent McMahon is back, a lot of people (well maybe 12 itu addicts) are asking the question. Is it possible for Canada to get 3 spots?
FYI > Kyle Jones is 61, Simon Whitfield is 64. Brent McMahon is 132.
And right now. France, Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Australia, Suisse, USA, Portugal and Spain have at least 3 athletes in the TOP 50. You can consult the ranking here. It’s not over yet, but we need some serious performances.
A maximum of 8 NOCs may have a maximum of 3 athletes per event. All other NOCs may have a maximum of 2 athletes per event.
• The maximum of 3 places will be allocated to the first 8 NOCs to have three (3) athletes eligible through the Continental Olympic Qualifying Events, the World Championships and then the Olympic Qualification Ranking (in that order).
• In case the third athletes from two different countries have the same points in the Olympic Qualification Ranking, the order between the countries will be determined by the better ranked second best athletes from those countries in the Olympic Qalification Ranking.
• In case the second best athletes also have the same points the order between the countries will be determined by the better ranked first athletes from those countries in the Olympic Qalification Ranking.
• In case the first athletes are also tied the same procedure will be used with the results from the 2008 ITU Triathlon World Championships.
