Tokyo 2020: Sailing keeps 10 medals, but athlete allocation cut by 30 sailors

Friday, June 9, 2017

SAILING ILLUSTRATED has just learned that the IOC has reduced the athlete quota for Sailing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games from 380 to 350, a cut of 30 sailors. The IOC's Executive Board has increased the total number of events by15, but with an overall reduction of 285 athletes from the numbers in Rio 2016. More events, fewer athletes. In Tokyo, the number of mixed (male-female) events will double from nine in Rio 2016 to 18. All new events will make use of existing venues.


World Sailing President Kim Andersen said, "The IOC Executive Board decision to confirm our 10 medal events for Tokyo 2020, but reduce sailing's quota by 30 sailors, is disappointing.""We will now need to review the quotas for 2020 and any impact on our event programme, and we will discuss this matter further with the IOC over the coming days."
