With the Paris Olympics 2024 drawing close, only few events are left in the Indian Sports Calendar. Several Indian athletes are still in contention to qualify for Paris 2024, while some athletes will use these events to wrap up their preparation for the Summer Games.

For Indian archers, the Archery World Cup in Antalya will be the last World Cup before teams can qualify through rankings. Both Indian teams are more or less secured of a ranking spot via the world rankings route until some disaster happens. Neeraj Chopra will also be in action this week at the Paavo Nurmi Games.
