FISA has given us an update about the qualified boats from the Latin America Regatta. Since a nation can only qualify one boat per gender some nations had to choose which event they will compete in meaning the other boat was reallocated to the next highest ranked nation. Also there was a slight change to the qualification format where the host quota reallocation now goes to the next highest ranked nation from the Latin America Regatta. Since Brazil has already qualified there will be seven quotas available in the single sculls for both genders. Here’s a list of qualified boats.
Men’s Single Sculls
Men’s Lightweight Double Sculls
Women’s Single Sculls
- Trinidad and Tobago
Women’s Lightweight Double Sculls
- FISA. 2016 Rowing Olympic and Paralympic Qualification By Event. Access on April 20 2016.
