How did he qualify?
By all means neccessary
For those who don’t understand and/ missed the back story: A Win Is A Win. :D:D:D
Eric Moussambani Malonga (born 31 May 1978) is a swimmer from Equatorial Guinea. Nicknamed Eric the Eel by the media, Moussambani won brief international fame at the 2000 Summer Olympics for an extremely unlikely victory. Moussambani, who had never seen an Olympic-sized swimming pool before, swam his heat of the 100 m freestyle on September 19 in the unprecedentedly slow time of 1:52.72. This was the slowest time in Olympic history by far, and Moussambani had trouble finishing the race, but he won his heat after both his competitors were disqualified due to false starts. Although Moussambani’s time was still too slow to advance to the next round, he set a new personal best and an Equatoguinean national record. He later became the coach of the national swimming squad of Equatorial Guinea.
That’s a good question. Olympics have qualifying time for races. For example if you run outside 10:50 in the 100m, they won’t even invite you.
He gained entry to the Olympics without meeting the minimum qualification requirements via a wildcard draw designed to encourage participation by developing countries lacking full training facilities.
The guy only learnt to swim the same year in a 13m long swimming pool. He had never seen an Olympic-sized pool before.
After that the entry requirements were made stricter, making it nearly impossible for anyone to follow his example: the International Olympic Committee (IOC) instituted what became known as the Eddie the Eagle Rule, which requires Olympic hopefuls to compete in international events and be placed in the top 30% or the top 50 competitors, whichever is fewer.
Different territories have different qualifying times though. Otherwise, sports would be dominated by one country.
If Olympics stated that qualification would be purely on time, all runners in the 3000m steeplechase would be Kenyan, Ugandan and Ethiopian. Sprinting would be almost purely Jamaican and US atheletes
Dafaq is wrong with Africans?
