Great info, thanks!
Have a look over the Euro & Asian events again to rectify the double input.
Also, unfortunately... the New Zealand qualifiers from the Oceania event were replaced with Vanuatu players thanks to the NZOC.

The ranking qualifying spots were determined after the last World Championships and not the most recent rankings.

The ranking qualifying spots were determined after the last World Championships and not the most recent rankings.

Add to this that, in May of 2011 (after 2011 World Championships, Wang Hao was #1, Zhang Jike was #3, Ma Long was #5--Timo Boll was #2 and Ma Lin was #4) and that only the top two players from each country can qualify in this way. So that is how you get Wang Hao and Zhang Jike. The reason only the top two can qualify in this way is that somebody does not want China to win all the medals, and they would if they could qualify all their top players.

But Ma Long did qualify in the Asian qualifications and he is the only player China sent to those qualifications.

Here is the rankings from May 2011 which they used to determine direct qualifications:
