How does it work?

Nations can either win a team quota (three archers) or an individual quota (one archer) per gender to the Olympic Games.

The team quota tournament takes place first at this final qualifier – on Friday and Saturday – and nations that have won an individual quota or no quota are eligible to compete. Qualification and early eliminations will take place in the morning and an afternoon session, starting from the quarterfinals in the arena, will decide the tickets.

There are currently four women’s team and three men’s team places available.

If a nation that has qualified an individual quota upgrades to a team quota then the individual quota place is returned and made available during the individual quota tournament.

The individual quota tournament takes place on Sunday and Monday. Early eliminations will take place in the morning and an afternoon session, starting from the round of 16 in the arena, will decide the tickets.

Only nations that have not yet won a quota place in the respective gender may compete. Each nation may win a maximum of one place. There are currently four women’s places and three men’s places available.

The final number of individual quotas available will be confirmed after the team events.

Recurve women team

  • Already qualified: France, Germany, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands and the USA.
  • Event date: Friday 14 June
  • Quotas available: 4
  • Nations competing (39): Australia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Brazil, Bahrain, China, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Great Britain, Hong Kong China, Indonesia, India, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Thailand, Türkiye, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

The winners of the quarterfinals will secure the Olympic tickets. China, unbeaten on the Hyundai Archery World Cup so far in 2024, must be favourite. Chinese Taipei and India are also currently glaring omissions on the entry sheet for Paris 2024.

Recurve men team

  • Already qualified: Colombia, France, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea and Türkiye.
  • Event date: Saturday 15 June
  • Quotas available: 3
  • Nations competing (46): Armenia, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bermuda, Bhutan, Brazil, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, China, Chinese Taipei, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Georgia, Great Britain, Greece, Hong Kong China, Indonesia, India, Iran, Israel, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

Teams representing 46 nations are competing for just three places – brutal. More than 90% of the squads in Antalya will leave the field disappointed. Teams must climb the podium to secure a ticket – so the two semifinals and bronze medal match are critical.

Confirmation of the individual events will be available after the respective team competitions.
