Last night in Klagenfurt the drawing of lots was held and the Olympic pools were decided.
In the men’s, due to the new continental cup qualification system, almost every pool has at least one bunny, so unless there are some major upsets, all of the favourites should progress without too much trouble.
The women’s draw does not seem to have so many holes, and there are a few pools that look harder to pick, such as pool E:
Maria Antonelli/Talita Antunes, Brazil
Sara Goller/Laura Ludwig, Germany
Louise Bawden/Becchara Palmer, Australia
Madelein Meppelink/Sophie van Gestel, Netherlands
