English Vocabulary

qualification slot

About the allocation of qualification for the London paralypic games, I can't translate in French the word SLOT in this sentense:
the qualification slot is allocated to the NPC not to the individual athlete or team (npc= national paralympic comite)
Thank you for the response


  • As it is about the number of athletes cleared to take part in a competition, I for one would tranlate slot by "place".
    There are 3 slots for that team.
    Il y a 3 places pour cette équipe.
    La place de qualification est attribuée au Comité national paralympique, non à l'athléte individuel ou à l'équipe.
    How does that catch you?
  • Thanks a lot,it's the good translation for "slot",It's not in my dictionary
