World Athletics has launched ‘Road to Tokyo‘, an online tool to help athletes, media and fans track the qualification process for next year’s Olympic Games.
Searchable by discipline, country and qualification status, the tool will provide a real time view of each event over the course of the Tokyo 2020 qualification period which ends on 29 June 2021.
As announced last month, the Tokyo 2020 qualification system already in force was adapted to fit the new dates of the Games, which were postponed in March. The Games will now be held from 23 July to 8 August, 2021.
The qualification principles remain unchanged with athletes able to qualify through entry standards and then the World Athletics World Rankings.
