This afaik is the first quad where the mid quad worlds has had a qualification process, rather than being open to all comers. It’s basically going to be like Tokyo, sans pandemic hopefully, for every non-individual world championships now. Clearly we’re going to need a thread for this, so I’ve bravely stepped up and those of you who actually understand it can do the hard work.
Full teams need to be qualified through continental championships, all still to be held. To the best of my knowledge there’s no pre qualifier for those, so anyone who wants to can enter.
Individuals can qualify through the world cup series and also through continental championships. There is information about the world cup series below.
Baku is on this weekend and is the final one. Still ongoing so I don’t think there are full qualifier lists, but some gymnasts have won all or nearly all the events. So we know Chusovitina has qualified through WAG vault and Kovtun for MAG parallel bars. Seeing that Ireland MAG have qualified four too. Not Dom Cunningham so he presumably wants to try for an AA spot at Euros.
Further information, corrections, speculation and bullshitting all welcome.
