Badminton: Tripartite Quotas Announced

Badminton World Federation has announced the tripartite quotas for badminton. Tripartite quotas are given to nations which have qualified less than an average of eight athletes in individual events over the past two Olympics. Originally three men’s singles and three women’s singles spots were available, however, only the men’s quotas were given out. Sri Lanka’s Niluka Karunaratne, Suriname’s Soren Opti and Brunei’s Jaspar Yu were the athletes selected to compete in the men’s singles.

The tripartite quotas for the women’s singles have since been reallocated to the next highest ranked athletes in the Olympic Rankings. Specifically the following athletes qualified to the Olympics; Estonia’s Kati Tolmoff, Hungary’s Laura Sarosi and Lithuania’s Akvile Stapusaityte.
