Paris Olympics 2024: Full list of qualified Indian athletes

The Tokyo Olympics saw India create history as they sent their largest-ever contingent of 124 athletes and also got their biggest haul in a single edition; seven medals. Tokyo 2020 also Neeraj Chopra clinch a historic gold in men’s javelin throw. At Paris Olympics, the focus will once again be on Neeraj, who will look to defend his title in his event.

In shooting, India saw plenty of drama for the Olympic quotas. Trap shooter Bhowneesh Mendiratta grabbed India’s first Paris 2024 quota at the 2022 ISSF World Championships, but did make it to the final team after the national trials. Prithviraj Tondaiman was given the quota in the category instead. India shooters secured a quota in every Olympic shooting category for the first time.

Meanwhile, race walkers Priyanka Goswami and Akshdeep Singh became the first Indians to qualify for athletics events at Paris 2024. Four Indian athletes breached the Paris Olympics qualifying standard in the men’s 20km walk, and one made the cut through the world rankings. But each national federation can only send a maximum of three athletes in the event to Paris, so Akshdeep, Vikash and Paramjeet Singh received the nod, Ram Baboo and Suraj Panwar missed out. Also, Priyanka and Akshdeep got the quota for India in the mixed relay marathon race walk event. But Suraj will partner Priyanka in Paris.

In women’s 57kg boxing, Parveen Hooda was the original quota-holder, having got the slot at the 2023 Asian Games, but got suspended for whereabouts failures. Jasmine Lamboria got the quota at the Olympic qualifiers in Bangkok in June.

Renowned sports medicine expert Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, who is the chief medical officer of the Indian contingent,also informed the media that athletes are in prime conditions for Paris Olympics. “All the athletes that are going for the Olympics are fit right now. Some athletes will have minor niggles here and there. I am not going to be discussing any specific injuries to any athlete that they’ve had in the past, but all of them who are there are there because they are going to be capable and they’re gonna be fit enough to perform,” he said.
