Ranking and ranking will dictate athletics qualification for Tokyo2020March 12, 2019
The qualification for the Tokyo2020 Olympic Games in athletics will depend on brands and the ranking, today decided the advice of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), which did not integrate the 50 kilometers marching women.
This distance, in which the Portuguese Inês Henriques is world champion and European, has not yet been integrated by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The athletes will be able to ensure their presence in Tokyo2020 by obtaining the minimums – which may be different from those demanded by the Portuguese federation – or the world rankings.
This year, only three Portuguese athletes overcame the qualifying marks – although only those obtained between May 1 and June 29, 2020 -, all in triple jump, and in covered track.
Pedro Pichardo, with 17.32 meters, Patrícia Mamona, with 14.44, and Susana Costa, with 14.43 – the qualifying mark will be 14.32 -, are the only ones that exceeded the minimums this year, while Nelson Évora, with 17.11, was within three centimeters of the 17.14 required.
The exceptions to this clearance window are for the marathon and for the 50 kilometers of men's marches, whose marks are valid from the beginning of the year until May 31, 2020, and for the 10,000 meters, 20 kilometers of march and for the combined tests, which also runs and continues until June 29, 2020.
Regarding the rankings, the best placed are Pichardo and Évora, who occupy the second and fourth places in the triple jump, followed by the marchers Ana Cabecinha (seventh in the 20 kilometers), Inês Henriques (ninth) and João Vieira (18. In the 50 kilometers).
Patrícia Mamona (20th) and Susana Costa (21st), both in triple jump, Francisco Belo (23rd) and Tsanko Arnaudov (27th), at the weightlifting, and Irina Rodrigues (21st) and Liliana Cá (23.ª), at the album's launch, also occupy top places in their respective hierarchies.
