Australia's men's Sevens weren’t the only team to book their Tokyo 2020 ticket last weekend, as the Olympic picture becomes a little bit clearer.
The Aussies took out last weekend’s Oceania 7s title, beating Samoa in the final, to secure their Tokyo berth in one of the key regional qualifiers.
Fijiana took out the women’s section to secure their spot in the 2020 Olympics, before finishing second to Australia in the Oceania championship final.
Further afield, Kenya’s men took out the African qualifier, beating Uganda in the decider, to secure their regional qualifying spot in the Tokyo games.
Kenya coach Paul Feeney said s solid block of training had paid off in their qualifying tournament.
"The boys played very well. We had a plan of how we wanted to play in this tournament," he said.
"The players worked very hard throughout the competition. They trained for 11 weeks non-stop.
“So, I am very proud of them. We will take a break, then prepare for the 2020 World Rugby Sevens Series."
China’s women also sorted their Tokyo qualification with a title in the Asia regional qualifier.
With the bulk of the qualification tournaments now run and done, there are just four spots left in the 2020 Games.
One of those will be finalised in the men’s Asian qualifiers on the weekend of November 23 and 24 while the rest of the hopefuls will compete for the final spots in next year’s global repechage in June.
The Tokyo 2020 Sevens competition kicks off on July 27 with the men’s tournament, followed by the women on on July 30.
