Direct qualification events for Tokyo 2020 Paralympics updated

Seven Para sports have confirmed direct qualification opportunities for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

Athletes in archery, canoe, rowing, sitting volleyball, shooting, taekwondo and table tennis have a chance to secure their nation’s tickets to Tokyo 2020, which are set to take place from 24 August – 5 September.

Nine direct qualification events are scheduled in between now and the Games, while other valid events in a number of sports are also taking place for qualification rankings or to achieve eligibility.

Paralympic Games Sport & NPC Services Senior Manager Juergen Padberg said: “I would like to thank the International Sport Federations and event organisers, among other key players, for setting up these final qualification events. It has been an immense challenge for everyone on all sides with the COVID-19 pandemic, and we hope these competitions give Para athletes renewed motivation in their journey towards Tokyo 2020.”
