NEW DATES FOR THE OLYMPIC GAMES IN TOKYO HAVE BEEN APPROVED

The ISSF has supported the proposal from the IOC and Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee to host the Games of the XXXII Olympiad from 23rd July to 8th August 2021.

All quota places already allocated during qualifying competitions, starting with 2018 World Championship in Changwon, Korea, will remain valid.

Given a very low probability that any qualification competitions would be held this season, the ISSF will address to the IOC with a proposal to leave unchanged the provision to allocate 12 quota places according to the World Rankings (one in each individual event) as of 31st May 2020 which was stipulated in the Qualification system approved in 2017.

The remaining qualification quotas (16 quotas allocated to the European Shooting Confederation), which have not been awarded so far, can be won during the 2021 competitions.

After a new deadline for the Olympic qualification has been agreed with the IOC, a schedule will be approved to determine the procedure of how to exchange and redistribute quota places, including those which will not be distributed by the IOC Tripartite Commission.
