Italia Team exceeds quota number 200! The Italian triathlon mixed relay team flies to Paris 2024


Italia Team exceeds quota number 200! The triathlon mixed relay team has secured the crucial Olympic spots necessary to surpass Italy's quota of 200 qualifiers for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. With the 4 national slots secured by the triathlon (2 per gender), the total count of Italia Team athletes participating in the French Olympic event now stands at 203, comprising 102 women and 101 men.

The official statement was released by World Triathlon, which, after the cancellation of the World Triathlon Championship Series, Para Cup, and Mixed Relay stage in Abu Dhabi due to adverse weather conditions, has opted, following consultations with the Technical and Athletes Committee, not to reschedule the event. This choice respects the original closing date of the relay ranking, set for March 25th.

With no further events on the calendar, the ranking is now “frozen”, and Italy, currently in eighth place, sits behind Great Britain (runner-up at the 2022 World Championships), Germany (winner of the 2023 World Championships), and France (host country). Italy is among the top six nations in the ranking, guaranteeing direct qualification for Paris 2024. Each gender will have two athletes participating in the individual events.

This marks a historic achievement for FITRI (photo ANSA), as its athletes qualify for the Olympics without the need for repechage or individual rankings for the first time. Furthermore, the team will participate in the mixed specialty, which was introduced into the Olympic program in Tokyo 2020.
