    Trio Get Rio 2016 Tripartite Places
    http://bwfbadminton.com/2016/05/25/trio-get-rio-2016-tripartite-places/

    Summary:

    • The players receiving Tripartite places are: World No.407 Jaspar Woon Chai Yu (Brunei), World No.96 Niluka Karunaratne (Sri Lanka) and World No.284 Soren Opti (Suriname) will join at least 38 other competitors in Men’s Singles.

    • There were no allocations of Tripartite Places in Women’s Singles as none of the candidates met the required criteria of playing a minimum of three international tournaments. These three places have been returned to Badminton World Federation for reallocation.

    • As Brazil already have a player qualifying on ranking within the top 34 quota places, the host place has been reallocated also. Additionally, three places have been reallocated in Men’s Singles due to male players qualifying in two events. David Obernosterer (Austria), Martin Giuffre (Canada), Petr Koukal (Czech Republic) and Pedro Martins (Portugal) are in line to receive these four reallocated places.

    • Brazil’s Lohaynny Vicente will take the place reserved for the hosts. Six reallocated places have become available in Women’s Singles as a result of female players participating in two events and due to the reallocation of Tripartite places. Kati Tolmoff (Estonia), Laura Sarosi (Hungary), Chloe Magee (Ireland), Akvile Stapusaitye (Lithuania), Telma Santos (Portugal) and Sabrina Jaquet (Switzerland) are in line to take these places.

    • The 16 places in each of the three doubles events will have no Tripartite or host quotas. Continental representation places are reserved provided the pair is within the top 50 rankings on the date of eligibility (5 May 2016). One place in Men’s Doubles (Australia’s Matthew Chau/Sawan Serasinghe) and two in Mixed Doubles (USA’s Phillip Chew/Jamie Subandhi and Australia’s Robin Middleton/Leanne Choo) have been taken under the continental representation system. A National Olympic Committee (NOC) can have only two representatives under this system.

    • As Australia has four eligible representatives (Ashwant Gobinathan in Men’s Singles, Hsuan-Yu Wendy Chen in Women’s Singles and the two doubles pairs mentioned above), the Australian NOC must confirm by 31 May 2016 which of the two they choose for Rio. The vacated spot will then go to the next highest-ranked representatives of an NOC from the same continental confederation.

    A final list of qualifiers will be published after the deadline of July 18, which will include the allocation of quota for Tripartite Commission invitation and host country.

    All the invitations up to phase 3 have been accepted.

    Subsequent phases will take place if players withdraw or NOCs decline invitations; BWF will then reallocate according to rankings.

    The deadline for declining invitations is 18 July; the draw for the Olympic competition will be made on 26 July.
