Tracking USA Selection Series for Rio Games
Published on February 8th, 2016
The selection series to determine the members of the Rio 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Teams has begun in eight of ten Olympic classes and in all three Paralympic classes. To help sailing fans follow the selection series in all thirteen classes, US Sailing has created a Team Tracker page.
For each class, the selection series is comprised of two major international regattas. The sailor or team with the best combined scores from the two events (lowest combined points) will earn selection in their class, pending approval by the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC).
Classes are listed on the tracker in the order that each selection series will conclude, with the earliest classes at the top. The United States has qualified for Rio 2016 in all ten Olympic sailing classes, and all three Paralympic sailing classes.
