Each NOC can have a maximum of three athletes per event.

A total of 1,810 athletes comprising 905 women and 905 men will be participating in the track and field discipline at the Paris Olympics 2024.

As per regulations, each National Olympic Committee (NOC) can have a maximum of three athletes per event and two teams for team events, with one relay team allowed per NOC for relay events.

With seven out of 13 athletes who have already breached the qualification standards for Paris 2024 being in the men’s 20km race walk, India will face a selection dilemma due to the cap of three athletes per event. Furthermore, Universality Places are also granted to NOCs without qualified athletes, which will allow them to enter their highest-ranked male or female athlete in the 100m, 800m, or marathon event.

Following Neeraj Chopra’s historic gold at Tokyo 2020, Indian athletics has gained momentum and showcased strong performances at major international events.

As the qualification window narrows, the Indian track and field athletes are gearing up to solidify their spots through international competitions like the World Athletics Race Walking Team Championships, which concluded recently.

Neeraj Chopra will prepare for his title defense with strategic appearances in the Doha Diamond League and Paavo Nurmi Games. Additionally, in the men’s javelin category, Kishore Jena and Manu DP are poised to join Neeraj in Paris.

Avinash Sable and Parul Chaudhary qualified directly for the Men’s and Women’s 3000m steeplechase events, respectively, by meeting the qualifying standards. Meanwhile, athletes like Jeswin Aldrin and Annu Rani will continue to strive to secure their spots.

Athletes aiming to qualify for the Paris 2024 Games have two avenues for qualification: 50% of qualification spots are based on meeting the entry standard for an event within the qualification period, while the other 50% are determined by the World Athletics Ranking during the ranking period.

With each qualifying standard meticulously crafted to reflect the highest levels of performance, Indian athletes will stay on course to meet and surpass these benchmarks as they pursue their dreams of representing our country in the Olympics.
