FISO OCR World Championships Qualification

image11

Qualification Overview

Qualification in each country is by the national governing body, known as a national association or federation (OCRA.) 


This is commonly done through a national series, national championships, races sanctioned / approved by the national federation and / or races in their continental region. Many associations use a ranking system that helps them select athletes. If a country fields a full team (5 athletes per category), they will have 90 athletes per event category. Additional athletes may compete in the open category under their country flag, 

How to Qualify

Qualification is through one of the national federation  members of World OCR, representing countries in Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe. If your country does not have a national federation (list below), please contact competitions@worldocr.org for how to qualify. Continental associations (OCR Africa, OCR Americas, OCR Asia-Pacific and OCR Europe) assist athletes qualify in their regions.


Visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for general information on World OCR.
