Without a team, Brazil could have up to three gymnasts in Paris. Two vacant positions have already been filled. One, a consolation for the team that finished between 13th and 15th in the World Cup. It will be up to the technical committee to choose who will be called up, with good chances for Caio Souza, who will theoretically compete again at the beginning of next year.
The other was won by Diogo Soares, 26th in the overall singles, who had his passport stamped for Paris and the World Cup final – there are 24 places in the final, but Italy and Japan had three athletes ahead of them, and only two. He can fight for medals.
The event distributes eight Olympic places to gymnasts whose teams did not qualify, but in this parallel race, only six are in the final: one athlete from Kazakhstan, one from Israel, one from Armenia, one from the Netherlands and one from South Korea. .
The third and final wave
Brazil could still qualify a third athlete for the World Cup: Arthur Nouri. Bronze last year, he took eighth and final place in the static bar final, and is vying for the Olympic classification given to the best on the apparatus among those who still have not made the team. The dispute took place between Nouri, who scored 14.133, and Croatian Ten Srbić, who scored 14.433. If Brazil goes to Paris, they will be able to compete on all surfaces.
