IOC Revises Olympic Qualification Principles

The International Olympic Committee has revised the Olympic qualification principles due to the global coronavirus pandemic which has forced the Tokyo Games to 2021.

The new deadlines will allow various participants to ensure that they partake in the global showpiece.

“The revision has been made to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent finalisation of the new dates of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, replacing the previous version approved by the IOC Executive Board in July 2017,” the media release stated.

“The Qualification Principles are the reference for all the qualification systems, which are the regulations established by International Federations (IFs) that vary between each sport (and sports discipline, where applicable).

“The qualification systems consist of rules, procedures and criteria for participation in the competitions of the Olympic Games, in line with the Olympic Charter, and are approved by the IOC Executive Board.”

Extended Qualification Period and New Deadlines:

  • The new qualification period deadline is 29 June 2021, and IFs can define their own qualification period deadlines should these be prior to this date.
  • The revised final sport entries deadline has now been set at 5 July 2021.
  • The revision of the qualification systems will be finalised as quickly as possible, to give certainty to the athletes and National Olympic Committees (NOCs).
