Ashwini Ponnappa will become third Indian badminton player to feature in three Olympics.

The Paris Olympics are just around the corner, with less than 100 days to go, and nations worldwide are focusing on the competition. Badminton, one of the primary sports at the Summer Olympics, made its debut at the 1992 Barcelona Games. Since then, it has been a staple event, and the 2024 edition will mark the ninth time the sport has been included in the quadrennial games.

The competition will feature five categories: Singles and Doubles for both Men and Women, along with a Mixed Doubles event. The 16 highest-ranked pairs in the “Race to Paris Ranking Lists” as of April 30, 2024, will qualify for the Olympics. The qualification period, which began on May 1, 2023, is concluded on April 28, 2024.

For doubles, the top 8 ranked pairs per gender qualify, with up to 2 pairs maximum per NOC. Additional pairs are then determined by ranking until 16 total pairs per doubles event.

Each continental zone must have a minimum representation of 1 singles player and 1 doubles pair. Host France receives 1 male and 1 female singles entry. Four universality spots (2 male, 2 female) are allocated for NOCs without qualified players.
