An additional athlete, this time in women’s kiteboarding, will qualify to be nominated for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games Canadian Sailing Team following the 2024 Formula Kite World Championships to be held this week, May 14-19 in Hyères, France.
 
The 2024 Formula Kite World Championships will be the second and last competition that will serve as part of the qualification process for Canadian athletes, after the country earned an Olympic spot in women’s kiteboarding at the Santiago 2023 Pan American Games. 
 
Following the first qualification competition, at the 2024 Princess Sofia Trophy Regatta, Emily Bugeja (Vancouver – RVYC) took the lead in the Canadian qualification process by finishing in 25th position, followed by Marie-Ève Mayrand (Calgary), who was 27th. Nataliya Leshko (Toronto) was 32nd, while Martyna Dakowicz (Oakville, ON) was 33rd.

How Canadian athletes can qualify themselves for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games
For each class in which Canada qualifies a spot for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, except in 49erFX, athletes and teams can qualify themselves by being the athlete/team with the lowest score combined position from the 2024 World Championships in their respective classes and the 2024 Princess Sofia Trophy Regatta, added together, with selection being based on a sailing scoring system (lowest score first). 
 
If there is a tie, the athlete/team in the higher position (based on the sailing scoring system) at the 2024 Princess Sofia Trophy Regatta will qualify to be nominated. If an event is cancelled, it will be replaced by the classes’ 2024 European Championships.

Prior to being named to Team Canada, all nominations are subject to approval by the Canadian Olympic Committee’s Team Selection Committee after it has received nominations from all National Sport Organizations.
