The Olympic Games inagural event is edging closer, and in this procedure progressively numbers of athletes are affirmed as members of the Team GB every week. One of the very intriguing pick questions, especially from the Scottish view is whether Chris Hoy will be handed the scope to repeat his amazing 3-gold medal draw from 2008 Olympics.
Chris Hoy is engaged in a ferocious fight along with his team-mate of GB, Jason Kenny, for the only one available place in individual sprint. If Jason Kenny is liked, Chris Hoy will not be rejected the scope to reoccur his effort of 4 years before, as a rule alter signs that every nation is allowed to enter only a single rider each event.
Therefore, the selectors face the hellish dilemma of attempting to select which rider is better to get the gold on 6th August. Jason Kenny pipped Chris Hoy in semi-final of World Championships previous month, but Chris Hoy has been victorious in 3 of their previous five encounters, as well as was quite faster than the rival in the qualifying round at World Championships.
Here lies the trouble in selecting the Olympic squad: what elements must be considered first? Badminton has one year-long qualifying time that finishes with world ranking list portraying a fairly accurate turn signal of form via the last few year.
Other games, though, like swimming have a do-or-die trial. If one does not end in top 2 in trials, then he is not selected. After that there are games like cycling that take into bill throughout the year, along with few events being handed greater stress compared to other sports.
