Alannah Yip won’t be heading to finals at the Toulouse Olympic Qualifying event but finished 13th overall, meaning she missed securing a spot in Tokyo by only seven spots. Her next chance to secure a spot at the Olympics is at the Pan Am Games in February.
The Toulouse event has been filled with ups and downs and the finals are set to take place for men on Nov. 30 and for women on Dec. 1. You can watch here
U.S.A. has now filled their Olympic quota thanks to Kyra Condie securing a spot at the Olympics. Other women who will be going include Laura Rogora, Julia Chanourdie, Julia Kaplina and YiLing Song. Mia Krampl and Lucka Rakovec are both from Slovenia and will be competing on Sunday to determine who will be heading to Tokyo.

Immensely proud of @alannah_yip for her amazing performance in Toulouse today. ❣️ You are one of the most passionate, strong, driven and dedicated people I know and I feel lucky to call you a teammate and friend. It was a nail bitter until the absolute very end with a huge fight from Alannah on the lead route. 💪Unfortunately it wasn’t quite enough to make the Olympic team today but she has another chance in February at Pan Ams!! #inspired
