Updated Olympic Nomination & European Zone Qualification Event Selection Policy

BF has updated the Olympic Nomination and European Zone Qualification Event Selection Policy in line with the recent FIE announcements regarding the dates of the final qualification tournaments.

Following on from the recent FIE announcement (here), BF has updated the Olympic Nomination Policy (here) to reflect the new dates:

  1. The date which marks the end of the FIE direct qualification process and therefore acts as a key date for the BF nomination and selection process. This date was originally 4th April 2020 and it is now 5th April 2021.
  2. The estimated date of the BOA DRM meeting – changed from 6 July 2020 to 6 July 2021.

In addition the document has an updated link to the official FIE/IOC final qualification system (here).

The document also contains the selection policy for the European Zone Qualifying Competition which sets out the criteria under which selection will be made. Other than the date change covered in 1. above, there are no changes to this selection policy.

All changes in the document are marked in yellow.

Any athlete expecting to be considered for selection (for the European Zone Qualifying Competition) or nomination (for the Olympics) is strongly encouraged to re-read this policy. They are also invited to contact Johnny Davis [email protected] to confirm understanding of their current position in respect of the selection and nomination criteria contained in the document.

This document has been sent to the British Olympic Association (BOA) and BF Board for final approval.

Please note that if the dates of the final FIE direct qualification period competitions are changed, the dates in this document will be further updated accordingly.
