It may seem a bit early, but after this summer, there is only one more World Championships before Tokyo.

As 8 teams qualify per weapon now (Top 4 in world plus one per zone), there are only 10 individual places per weapon left.

Of those 10, only 3 will go to Europe.

2 come from an adjusted world ranking taking out all the nations that have teams qualified already.

1 comes from a European zonal qualifier for countries that have no team qualified in that weapon and also have no fencers in that weapon in the Adjusted World ranking who have qualified.

I think individual qualification is going to be very tough, although once you take the 8 nations out after the team events, you may need to go quite a way down the rankings in some weapons to qualify.
