Slalom:

NOCs limited to one boat per event. Qualification spots were earned as follows:

World Championships: The top placed boats. 18 qualification spots were available in the K-1 events, and 11 in the C-1.

Continental Qualification Events: 1 qualification spot was available for each continent. These were assigned to continents based on World Championship results: the best ranked non-qualifying NOCs from three different continents at the World Championships earned their continent one boat qualification place.

Tripartite Commission: Canoeing (both slalom and sprint) has a total of 2 qualification spots that would be awarded through Tripartite Commission invitations.

 

Sprint:  A similar qualification process with an additional opportunity to qualify through World Cup 2 next year.

India watch:

India is yet to feature in Canoeing in the Olympics. No clarity on the participation for the World Championships in August-September this year and the Asian Canoe Championships in March next year and it is highly unlikely that India will qualify for the Olympics this time as well.

 

Track:

Track cycling is done entirely through UCI nation rankings.

Team sprint – top 8 teams per gender

Team pursuit – top 8 teams per gender

Madison – all NOCs with a qualified team pursuit, in addition to the next 8 teams per gender (total of 16 teams)

Omnium – NOCs directly qualifying for Madison, in addition to the next 12 (men) or 13 (women) (total of 20 or 21 individuals)

Sprint – NOCs qualifying in team sprint enter 2 individuals, in addition to the next 7 best-ranked in individual sprint, and the next 7 best-ranked in Keirin (total of 30 individuals)

Road:

Majority of the places in road cycling are attributed through the UCI nation rankings (122 for men, 62 for women). 2 men and 1 woman each in Africa, Americas, and Asia can qualify through individual road race continental championships.

 

Mountain:

 

 Thirty places (per gender) will be allocated through the UCI nation rankings and three through continental championships with one each for Africa, Americas, and Asia. One spot per gender has been reserved for host nation Japan. The remaining four spots will be awarded to the top mountain bikers competing at the 2019 UCI World Championships, with two each in the elite and under-23, respectively.

India Watch:

Deborah is the highest placed Indian - male or female at No. 118 in the rankings for track events. So not feasible for  participation.

 

Qualification process:

The 200 quota places for equestrian at the 2020 Summer Olympics were divided between the three disciplines (75 for jumping, 65 for eventing, and 60 for dressage). Teams in each discipline consisted of three horse and rider pairs; any NOC that qualified a team (20 teams for jumping, 15 each for eventing and dressage) also received 3 entries in the individual competition for that discipline. NOCs that did not qualify teams could earn one individual place in that discipline (15 entries in jumping and dressage, 20 for eventing). Teams qualify primarily through specific competitions (World Equestrian Games and continental tournaments), while individuals qualified through ranking.

India Watch:

India won two medals at the Asian Games through Fouaad Mirza and there is a tiny chance of India clinching the quota from Group F.

Qualification process:

There are 200 quota spots for fencing at the 2020 Summer Olympics. Qualification is primarily based on the FIE Official Ranking as of April 4, 2020, with further individual places available at 4 zonal qualifying tournaments.

For the team events, 8 teams qualify in each event. Each team must be composed of at least 3 fencers. The top 4 ranked teams qualified. The next best ranked team from each zone (Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Oceania) qualify as long as it is ranked in the top 16. If a zone had no teams ranked between 5th and 16th, the best placed nation not already qualified is selected regardless of zone.

For individual events, the 3 fencers from the team event qualified for individual competition automatically. Six more places were awarded based on the rankings (ignoring fencers from countries with team qualifications and considering only the top fencer from each country): the top 2 fencers from each of Europe and Asia-Oceania, and the top 1 fencer from each of Americas and Africa, qualify. 4 more places (1 per zone) were awarded through zone qualifying tournaments; only countries without a qualified fencer in an event were eligible to participate in these zone qualifying tournaments.

India Watch:

Bhavani Devi, ranked No. 44 in the world has a fair chance to qualify through the Asian qualifiers. She recently reached the Last 16 in the World Championships - the first Indian to do so.

 

Qualification process:

Twelve teams qualify for the men's field hockey at the 2020 Summer Olympics. Each of the Continental Champions from five confederations received an automatic berth. Japan as the host nation qualified automatically. In addition, the remaining six nations will be determined by an Olympic qualification event.

With Japan winning the Asian Games, it freed up one more space in the olympic qualification event with seven places up for grabs.

4 teams from FIH Pro League 2019, two each from three FIH Series Finals (6) and four through rankings will feature in the final Olympic qualifying event.

The 14 teams will be split into 7 pairs, each pair playing a two-match, aggregate score series. The winner of each series qualifies for the Olympics.

India watch:

 

After faltering in the Asian Games, the Indian men’s and women’s team had to progress through the FIH Series Finals. Both the men and the women have qualified for the final Olympic Qualifying event after triumphing at the FIH Series Finals.

The final two-match series is expected to be held around October/November.

Qualification process:

The Olympic field is restricted to 60 players for each of the men’s and women’s competitions. The IGF will utilise the official world golf rankings to create the Olympic Golf Rankings as a method of determining eligibility. The top-15 world-ranked players will be eligible for the Olympics, with a limit of four players from a given country. Beyond the top-15, players will be eligible based on the world rankings, with a maximum of two eligible players from each country that does not already have two or more players among the top-15.

 The IGF has guaranteed that at least one golfer from the host nation and each geographical region (Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania) will qualify.

 

India Watch:

Aditi Ashok finished fourth and narrowly missed an Olympic in the women’s golf at Rio 2016. Aditi is currently at No. 35 in the Olympic golf ranking list (updated weekly) and Diksha Dagar is at 56, Shubhankar Sharma and Gaganjeet Bhullar are placed 49th and 50th respectively.

If they maintain their positions, India will be sending four athletes in golf for the Tokyo Olympics!

It will now be possible to qualify for the Olympics on the basis of an aggregate of scores achieved over the Artistic Gymnastics World Cup series, and the various continental artistic gymnastics championships

India Watch:

Dipa Karmakar has been bogged down by injuries. Pranati Nayak is another Indian who is aiming to qualify for the Olympics.

Qualification process:

12 teams will compete in handball: the hosts, the world champion, four continental champions and six teams from the World Olympic qualification tournaments respectively.

 

India Watch:

India will have to qualify from the Asian Championships in September (women) and October (men), which looks unlikely if past performances are taken into consideration.

Qualification process:

A total of 386 athletes could qualify for judo at the 2020 Summer Olympics. Each NOC could enter a maximum of 14 judokas (one in each division). Host nation Japan has reserved a spot in each of all 14 events, while twenty are made available to NOCs through a Tripartite Commission Invitation.

The top 18 athletes in each division directly qualify through rankings published on May 20, 2020 ( 1 judoka per NOC).

Continental quotas (13 men and 12 women for Europe, 12 of each gender for Africa, 10 men and 11 women for Pan America, 10 of each gender for Asia, and 5 of each gender for Oceania.
