Madden is automatically invited as defending champion and is joined on the Eastern Sub-League qualified list by fellow-Americans Molly Ashe Cawley, McLain Ward, Laura Kraut, Devin Ryan, Lucy Davis, Georgina Bloomberg and Mattias Tromp.
Extra eligible athletes from this series also include Germany’s Wilhelm Genn, New Zealand’s Sharn Wordley and Switzerland’s Beat Mandli along with Irishmen Conor Swail and Shane Sweetnam and the Canadian duo of Nicole Walker and Mario Deslauriers.
The three qualified from the Western Sub-League are America’s Richard Spooner, Eve Jobs and Kelli Cruciotti, while Egypt’s Nayel Nassar and Mexico’s Salvador Onate and Eugenio Garza Perez have also made the cut through this series.
