    2024 Olympic Quota Tracker (4/8/2024)

    Over the weekend, the European Olympic Games Qualifier took place from Baku, Azerbaijan. With the depth that Europe has in all three styles, paying attention to European results is essential in the lead up to the Olympic Games or even the Olympic Trials. Since the United States still needs to qualify two men’s freestyle weights and three Greco-Roman weights, there are likely some talented European wrestlers who will present problems for our American representatives. 

    With the results from the European qualifier, combined with results from the 2023 World Championships and the Pan-American and African and Oceania Qualifier, we almost have the entire Olympic entry list. 

    The final continent to hold their qualifier is Asia, which will take place at the same time as our Olympic Trials. 

    The final three spots (per weight class) will be decided at the World OG Qualifier (aka Last Chance Qualifier) May 9th-12th. 

    If a country needs to qualify a weight class for the Olympics, they’ll have to enter and finish in the top-three spots at the World OG Qualifier. 

    Remember, these Olympic quotas earned at the World Championships or continental qualifiers are for the country, not necessarily the individual. Some countries will give the Olympic spot to the individual that qualified the weight; however, that’s up to each country. 

    Below is an updated list of countries who have qualified for the 2024 Olympic Games at each weight, across all three styles.

    *Wrestlers who have competed for Belarus or Russia have had to compete under the name Independent Neutral Athletes (AIN) rather than their respective country. Since they have been permitted to compete at the European OG Qualifier, we assume their representatives will be able to compete in Paris. Or it could be on a case-by-case basis. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Abdulrashid Sadulaev was not permitted to compete at the European tournament.
