The new sports minister said, “120 Indian Athletes Will Qualify For The Paris Olympics 2024”


There are 97 Indian competitors who have already qualified for the Paris Olympics 2024, which kick off on July 26.

In a meeting with IOA President PT Usha on Thursday, barely a day after taking office, the new Sports Minister Mansukh Mandaviya assessed India’s readiness for the upcoming Olympics. Usha seemed confident about the country’s delegation of over 100 athletes in Paris. At the IOA Bhawan here on Thursday, Mandaviya—who succeeded Anurag Thakur as head of the sports ministry—met with Usha and other high-ranking members of the Indian Olympic Association. On July 26, 2024, the Paris Olympics will take place.

Mandaviya was briefed about the nation’s preparations for the Paris Games at the more than hour-long meeting, which was also attended by the newly appointed Minister of State for Sports, Raksha Khadse, Sports Secretary Sujata Chaturvedi, and Director General Sandip Pradhan of the Sports Authority of India.

“Today was my first visit with IOA officials, who gave me an update on India’s Olympic preparations in Paris. “The government is dedicated to providing every conceivable assistance,” Mandaviya declared in a brief statement to the press.

Usha, the head of IOA, appeared pleased with the encounter and said that the athletes heading to Paris will benefit from the minister’s involvement.

“I am thrilled that the Minister of State for Sports and the Sports Minister came to our IOA today to learn more about the Paris preparations and IOA. I’ve given him a thorough rundown of everything we did this time. I hope this will benefit our Olympic athletes, and we will be in touch once a week,” she stated.

“We have catered to athletes in every way possible. We acted this time according to the athletes’ wishes, as they were our primary priority. Therefore, compared to Tokyo, we anticipate winning more medals this time. I don’t want to impose any numbers on the players and make them nervous.

“Already 97 athletes have qualified, and we are expecting around 115 to 120 athletes to represent India in Paris Olympics,” the great athlete stated.This year’s Paris Olympics will take place between July 26 and August 11.
