Pan-Ams: The Next Olympic Qualifying Event

 

In less than a week, the first 2020 Olympic qualifying event begins in Los Angeles, California at Sender One. 48 athletes from nine countries will vie for an Olympic berth. Only the top placing male and female athletes will qualify for Tokyo, provided their country hasn’t already filled its quota. 

After Brooke Raboutou, Kyra Condie and Nathaniel Coleman’s Olympic qualifications, the U.S. has only one male spot remaining. Top athletes to watch include Sean Bailey, who placed 9th in the Toulouse Olympic Qualifier, and Zach Galla, winner of the recent Combined National Championships.
