Who are the Major Players in the “Minor” Continents for Semifinals?

While the “Major” continents of North America and Europe wait to see how they will be distributed into the four and two respective Semifinal competitions, the “minor” continents do not have that stress.

All the qualifiers will participate in one Semifinal for their continent, with the opportunity to earn one of very few spots to the Games. Of the 38 athletes who will qualify directly from a Semifinal to the Games (two spots remain for the Last Chance Qualifier), 30 of them will come from North America and Europe. That leaves only eight spots from the other four continents; this article details who I believe are the most likely eight in both the men’s and women’s competitions.
