Which archers can qualify for the Paris 2024 Olympics in Krakow?


Short answer: Everyone.

All 93 recurve archers competing at next week’s European Games in Krakow are eligible to win one of the four quota places to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games available at the event.

Only 128 archers compete at each edition of the Olympics – and the spots have to be won in competition.

Although the places awarded in Krakow won’t become official until after the 2023 Hyundai World Archery Championships, which are taking place on 1-6 August in Berlin, the athletes who finish top in the recurve mixed team competitions will guarantee their nations the first tickets to the next Games – as well as the top two finishers in the recurve women’s individual and recurve men’s individual events.

The mixed team places (one man, one woman) will be won on Sunday 25 June, while the individual spots will be awarded on Wednesday 28 June (recurve women) and Thursday 29 June (recurve men).

Even though the European Games are held first, the world championships take priority in the qualifying procedure for Paris 2024.

This means that, if a country that qualifies a place at the European Games also wins a place at the worlds, that quota would be reassigned to the next highest-placed athlete or team on the final results list from Krakow.
