So I heard that Reece Humphrey will not be at OTTs this year, he is training for a tourney a week later to qualify the 60 kg spot for us.

A few things:
1.) Why wouldnt they send Reece in the first place? Hes separated himself from Bunch in my opinion and is a much more consistent competitor.

2.) does this give Reece some sort of inside track to the spot? It doesnt seem like hes earned that considering hes not a returning world medalist. It seems like it will be Reece v. Whoever wins OTTs to take the spot, which is an advantage Reece really hasnt earned imo. He should have to navigate OTTs like everyone else.

I dont have all the details so much is speculation. Interested to read what others think/know about this situation.
