Athletes Eligibility

To be eligible to participate in the Olympic Games Paris 2024, all athletes must meet the criteria listed in the Qualification System (see link at top of this page).

Sports Entries Process

NOCs are encouraged to work with their respective National Boxing Federations (NF) with regards to the Olympic qualification tournaments and competition at the Olympic Games Paris 2024. All entries for qualification tournaments require NOCs to confirm the technical and medical standard of the athletes. This way, if a National Federation has not recommended athletes to its respective NOC to be entered for the qualification tournaments and/or the Games themselves, the NOC is empowered to enter its athletes without the recommendation of the National Federation. ​

Paris 2024 Event Regulations
