With the publication of the final rankings of the 2019-21 Trampoline World Cup Series we can now determine almost the entire final qualifiers for trampoline. Six events were held over that period where the four best performances contributing to an athlete’s rank.
The number of quotas was dependent on the number qualified through the 2019 World Championships and continental championships (only valid if a continent failed to qualify through the world championships or world series rankings). In short, 14 athlete quotas will be determined through the combination of the three qualifying criteria while the final two were originally reserved for the host and tripartite quota. Additionally, only a maximum of four nations can qualify two athletes in the same event via a combination of obtaining a world championship and world series quota.
For the men, the World Cup Series quotas were won by Belarus (Uladzislau Hancharou), China (Dong Dong), Russia (Nikita Fedorenko), Japan (Daiki Kishi), New Zealand (Dylan Schmidt), Portugal (Diogo Abreu) and Australia (Dominc Clarke).
For the women, the World Cup Series quotas were won by China (Liu Lingling), Japan (Megu Uyama), Great Britain (Bryony Page), Russia (Susana Kochesok), United States (Nicole Ahsinger), New Zealand (Madaline Davidson) and Australia (Jessica Pickering).
With Japan already qualifying in trampoline and no tripartite invitation awarded the two remaining quotas will be reallocated to the highest ranked eligible athlete in the qualification round of the 2019 World Championships. Those reallocated quotas will go to Great Britain (Andrew Stamp) and Spain (Jorge Martin) for the men’s trampoline and Germany (Leonie Adam) and Ukraine (Maryna Kyiko) for the women’s trampoline.
Update: The FIG has decided to chance its reallocation policy at the last minute. The reallocated host quota will now go to the highest ranked eligible nation in the World Cup Series (Ukraine’s Mykola Prostorov for the men and Mexico’s Dafne Navarro for the women) while the reallocated tripartite quota will now go to the highest ranked eligible athlete at the 2019 World Championships overall (United States’ Aliaksei Shostak for the men and Canada’s Samantha Smith for the women).
The only quota remaining is the Pan American qualifier in men’s trampoline which will be decided this weekend.
