While T&T will have one representative in Wood some National Olympic Committees, in coordination with the national federations, will now have to choose their representatives in cases where several athletes from the same nation are inside the qualification quota.
For three years athletes from the five continents, representing 110 nations, including Japan as the host nation, have competed to earn the right to compete on the Olympic stage.
Wood currently has a ranking of 72nd in the +78kg category with 278 points and along with Nicaraguan Izayana Marenco secured their places in Tokyo via the ninth and tenth Pan American Continental quota spots of 11 respectively.
Overall, 20 countries will be invited to participate at the Budokan this summer, as well as six refugee athletes as members of the Olympic refugee team.
Last month Wood failed to get past her first opponent at the seven-day 2021 Judo World Championships at the Laszlo Papp Budapest Sports Arena in Hungary.
