Here is what the qualifying situation looks like for the M73 category if the allocation system is applied to the rankings for eligible athletes at the end of the second qualifying period.
The top eight athletes in the one-athlete-per-nation world rankings are allocated places, along with the next best athlete from each continent. A final place will go to either an athlete from the host nation (Japan) or be awarded by the Tripartite Commission. See our qualifying guide for the full details.
Note that these rankings will likely change during the third qualifying period and athletes who have earned Robi points in other categories may become eligible for this category. Some of the athletes listed here may not be selected if their country is offered more places than their maximum quota. Those slots would then be reallocated, meaning that athletes lower down the ranking may get a slot.
These athletes would be offered a slot at the Olympic Games based on their current ranking, which their National Olympic Committee could accept.
