The Paris Olympics 2024 will take place this month.

The wait is finally going to be over for Indian sports enthusiasts as they will finally witness their favourite athletes taking center stage at the Paris Olympics 2024 in Indian Sports Calendar. Following India winning an ICC tournament after an 11-year hiatus at the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Indian sports fans would expect a similar outcome from the Indian Olympians as they will be eyeing to take their medal tally to 10 or more for the first time in the history of the Summer Olympics.

A majority of the sports will see participation of Indian athletes primarily in the Olympic Games, while in events like Athletics, Badminton, Golf, Table Tennis, and Tennis, Indians are also set to appear in non-Olympic events. Additionally, for some sports like Athletics, Wrestling, Golf, and Weightlifting, among others, the events are scheduled to begin from August onwards at the Paris Olympics 2024.

With this, let’s look at the Indian sports calendar for July as the Olympics are less than a month to go.
