2022 USA JUDO SENIOR PAN AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS TEAM SELECTION CRITERIA


Updated January 11, 2022

The 2022 Senior Pan American Championships will be held in Lima, Peru April 15-16, 2022. The team will consist of 18 total athletes, 9 male and 9 female, based off the IJF World Ranking List (WRL) that includes all results through Sunday, March 20, 2022. This list will be used to identify the 9 highest ranking male athletes and the 9 highest ranking female athletes. The ranking will be based on IJF World Ranking List points. All selections will be based on the number of accrued points per weight division on the IJF World Ranking List (WRL).

There will be a maximum of 2 athletes in any single weight category. If a category has already been filled by 2 athletes, no other athletes may be considered for that category, unless there is a subsequent withdrawal from one of the two occupied slots. In the case of such a withdrawal, the next eligible person on IJF World Ranking List, will be selected to the team providing their weight division has unfilled slots. This will continue until all 9 slots are filled for both men and women.

These athletes will be named to the 2022 Senior Pan American Championships Team.

The above criteria is based on the current IJF eligibility rules. If the IJF changes eligibility rules, USA Judo reserves the right to modify the 2022 Senior Pan American Championships Team criteria.
