The timetable for the athletics competition at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and the dates for the World Athletics Relays Nassau 24 have been confirmed by World Athletics.
Spread over 11 days, athletics action at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will start with the 20km race walk events on Thursday 1 August, and end with the women’s marathon on the final day of the Games, Sunday 11 August.
The qualification system for athletics competition at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games was released last month, again based on a dual pathway of qualification that will see 50% of athletes qualify through entry standards and the remaining 50% qualify through World Rankings.
The World Athletics Relays in Nassau in The Bahamas on 4-5 May 2024 will be the main Olympic qualifying event for the relays, with 14 out of the 16 teams qualifying at the event in Nassau.
The dates for the World Athletics Relays were approved by the World Athletics Council in late December 2022.
