World Athletics has released the qualification system for Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

With the games set for kick off on July 26th to August 11th has attracted 23 women’s and men’s events as well as two mixed events – the 4x400m mixed relay and the 35km mixed team race walk.

For the 10,000m, combined events, race walks and relays, the qualification period runs from December 31 2022 to June 30 2024. For the marathon, the qualification window is from November 1 2022 to April 30 2024. For all other events, the qualification period runs from July 1 2023 to June 30 2024.

Nassau in The Bahamas will host the World Athletics Relays, the main Olympic qualifying event for the relays, in April/May 2024 (dates to be confirmed).

For the marathon, any athlete ranked higher than the 65th athlete on the filtered Quota Place “Road to Paris” list on 30 January 2024 will be considered qualified. After 30 January 2024, the remaining 20% of the quota will be determined by the same dual pathway qualification criteria outlined above, without displacing the athletes qualified per 30 January 2024.

Any national Olympic committee may choose to reallocate a quota place to an unqualified athlete, provided the athlete in the qualification window has achieved at least a 2:11:30 (men) or 2:29:30 (women) performance. 

As was the case for the Olympic Games in Tokyo and the World Championships in Oregon, the qualification system will be based on a dual pathway of qualification, with 50% of athletes qualifying through entry standards and the remaining 50% qualifying through World Rankings.

World Athletics will publish the official qualification monitoring tool (Road to Paris) on the Stats Zone of the World Athletics website in the latter part of 2023.
