Says top ten, PLUS host country and universality places. Which isn't the same thing, I think?
Itís due to the things you mention that there are 12 places. Iíve no idea why but from the start of the qualifiers itís stated that the top 12 will get places other than when the country quota is filled.
If Molly is 12 th she gets in.

So much to celebrate. As a nation managing to get a full quota of qualifying athletes. The emergence of the well named McBeast as a force to be reckoned with. Molly being an inspiration with her comeback from serious injury and her ability to put some indifferent results behind her to deliver when it mattered. Sad that Max and Jim can't be there too but I'm sure they'll both enjoy a few beers and some outdoor climbing over the summer instead!

Agreed. I imagine it stings much less knowing that other GB team mates are there instead. Would have been harder if the quotas weren't filled.

Not sure if it's been mentioned anywhere but our most glorious and revered Ondra has made the selection.
May his neck extend and receive the golden medal in Paris.

My google skills send me round in circles, is there a definitive final list anywhere?

Also is speed climbing the "shortest" Olympic event now? Fastest times are about half that of the 100m sprint now.

This is easy enough to read.

Also yes, speed climbing has been mentioned a few times by commentators/pundits as the "fastest" event at the Olympics, but this is obviously incorrect. It is true though that the times are shorter than any other speed based event - but I suppose "shortest" Olympic event is less snappy.

Great, thanks. Should have looked in the obvious place really. Not Olympics or IFSC sites.

That's mainly why I tried to caveat with "speed based event". In all sports, would something like shooting or archery be even quicker again? It does get a bit hard to define...  :-\

Haha, true that is what I get for not reading properly.

Things like diving, archery, shooting are all scored entirely differently anyway. Although in archery, diving etc you also get a combined score over several shots/dives etc. You also have the setup up and aiming time in things like archery. So I wonder which event has the shortest time overall when the athlete needs to 'perform'. A daft question I suppose but kind of interesting.

If you are a speed climber, you just get 2 "goes" in qualifying? So you could be participating for 12-14 seconds? Guess if you are qualifying for sprints, you are done with just one sprint in just over 11-12 seconds?

Two false starts, total time of zero seconds?


... or maybe track sprinter, with one false start, is twice as quick ;)
