LA 7s & LAI
While an automatic berth in the 2024 Olympic Games is at stake in this year's Sevens World Series, there is something else at stake, too—staying in the circuit.
The LA Invitational, the tournament around the big LA Sevens international event, is building nicely with some more brackets starting to build.
There is certainly an international flavor percolating through. Here are some noteworthy developments and a reminder to get your team into the competitions:
New Zealand's men's 7s team has been dealing with roadblock after roadblock these past few years, but maybe they enter the LA 7s with some much-needed momentum.
Long known for their huge fan following at the USA stop on the Sevens World Series, Kenya is more than just a pretty face.
Despite some significant obstacles, such as keeping the program supported and having their players balance rugby, work, and studies, Kenya is a team no one ever wants to play.
Who will garner automatic Olympic qualification this Sevens World Series season?
Much remains on the line after the first three men's tournaments and the first two women's tournaments, but the picture for the women is much, much clearer than it is for the men.
