Athletes’ Eligibility Information

We would like to remind all National Federations (NF) about the Canoe/Kayak Olympic Games Qualification System 2012 rule regarding Athlete’s Eligibility for the Olympic Qualification Competitions and the Olympic Games:

In order for an NOC to qualify a Boat Quota Place for the Olympic Games, each Competitor must be eligible to compete for their respective NF and NOC at the time of the particular Qualification Competition.

According to this, at the time of the Sprint World Championships 2011, to qualify a boat and/or an athlete quota place for the Olympic Games 2012, each athlete competing for a National Federation must be eligible to compete for the related National Olympic Committee (NOC) at the Olympic Games (which means carrying the nationality of the representing NOC and respect Articles 41 and 42 of the Olympic Charter).

Therefore, at the upcoming Sprint World Championships, the results of the athletes who do not comply with this rule (i.e. at the time of the World Championships they are not eligible to compete for their NOC at the Olympic Games) will not be taken into consideration for quota allocation to their NF and NOC in order to participate at Olympic Games.

If one athlete in a crew boat is not eligible for the NOC he is representing, then the entire boat is not eligible and the quotas (boat and/or athlete) cannot be allocated to the NOC.

The eligibility criteria for the athletes to compete for a NOC at the Olympic Games are stated in the Olympic Charter, Articles 41 and 42.
