New Zealand, Australia, and the United States are now the top three teams, and all three have already mathematically assured their places in the Olympic Games.
After France, who finished fourth, qualified as the hosts, the three countries vying for the final spot are Ireland (64 points), Fiji (62 points), and Great Britain (60 points).
After defeating Fiji to earn bronze and keep their aspirations alive in Hong Kong, China, Great Britain enters the contest on a high note.
The championship will officially be relinquished by New Zealand with a ninth-place overall finish or better.
To grab a 22-point lead over Argentina with two events left, their male counterparts, meanwhile, are needing to win three straight matches after winning in Singapore and Hong Kong.
If the All Blacks 7s finish first in Toulouse, they can win the men’s World Sevens Series title, surpassing all other teams even if they lose the series finale in London.
Olympic champions Fiji will try to overtake Argentina, which is now 10 points ahead. Argentina and Fiji both have a chance to get to the Olympics in Toulouse since only New Zealand (and France, as the hosts) have already qualified for the 2024 Games in Paris.
Both teams are now 28 and 18 points ahead of Australia, respectively, so they may both qualify as long as they amass enough points to have at least a 22-point advantage going into the London competition.
