Thirty-six countries have their tickets

The Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) has done its accounting: athletes from 36 countries have already won their tickets for the second edition of the World Beach Games, scheduled for next year in Bali. The qualifications have delivered the quotas in open water swimming, beach handball and karate. The qualification process established by ANOC will continue in the coming weeks in beach wrestling, multisport triathlon, beach soccer and beach tennis. The first edition of the World Beach Games, initially planned in San Diego (USA), but finally organized in Doha in 2019, had gathered about 1,200 athletes from almost 100 countries on five continents.
