  1. Ba Lipota give us the true and full story. At the Olympics Africa has more than three places. Why are the top three the only ones going to Rio?


  2. It’s 3 spots plus a playoff spot between the fourth African team and an Asian fourth placed.
    So it could go either way but I want to believe that an African side will clinch this spot to make us hv 4 representatives.
