AIN Eligibility Review Panel established by IOC EB – Paris Games-time protocol elements agreed on

The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has today agreed on a number of concrete implementation aspects for the participation of Individual Neutral Athletes (AINs) at the Olympic Games Paris 2024. AINs are athletes with a Russian or Belarusian passport who have qualified through the existing qualification systems of the International Federations (IFs) on the field of play. The implementation follows the strict eligibility conditions which were put in place for AINs by the IOC EB on 8 December 2023.

Today, the IOC EB received an update that there are currently 12 AINs with a Russian passport and seven AINs with a Belarusian passport who have qualified for Paris 2024, out of the 6,000 quota places that have already been awarded for the Olympic Games Paris 2024. The experts currently project that, under the most likely scenario, 36 AINs with a Russian passport and 22 AINs with a Belarusian passport will qualify for the Olympic Games Paris 2024. The maximum number, which is unlikely to be reached, would be 54 and 28 respectively. These numbers have to be compared to the 330 athletes from the Russian Olympic Committee who took part in Tokyo, and the 104 athletes from the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of Belarus. It is important to note that these estimates for Paris 2024 do not take into account the IOC eligibility review process, which will determine final participation.
