STUTTGART (GER), 7 October 2019 – the second and last day of men’s qualifications at the 49th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Stuttgart (GER), the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) officially updated the list of qualified teams and confirms the individual gymnasts who have earned a nominative place at the 2019 World Championships for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
The list has been published on the 2020 Olympic Games event calendar page on the FIG website.
On 12 and 13 October, the three highest placed eligible gymnasts in each apparatus final in Stuttgart will also book their Olympic tickets with a maximum of three gymnasts per country for all apparatus.
The specialists have another opportunity to qualify with the current Apparatus World Cup series that ends in March 2020. The four women’s and six men’s winners on each apparatus – a ranking decided by taking the best three results of each participant in the series – will be Tokyo-bound (on the condition that these gymnasts have not actively participated in the qualification of their respective teams).
There will be the possibility of gaining extra individual places for the competing countries via the 2020 All-around World Cup series – these will be available to the top three countries in this four-stage series running in March and April of that year.
The final qualifying opportunity will come at the continental championships in spring 2020 when there will be two individual places at stake for each of Africa, America, Europe and Asia and one place for Oceania. For more information on the Olympic qualification system, click here.
