I agree that the trials are awesome, but I still can't get past the argument as to why should the USA (or Japan) get this special treatment...

Or why other countries would want to give the US a break...

The reduction in numbers is happening across a lot of sports mainly because of the addition of several sports or events in the Games and the IOC desire to keep the number of athletes around 10,000 (yep, 10 thousand).
