The qualification systems for all 32 sports on the Paris 2024 sports programme were approved by the IOC EB this week. These outline the various ways in which athletes and National Olympic Committees can qualify for the Paris 2024 Games.

Some already announced changes for the Paris 2024 Olympics are as follows:
- In Boxing, there will be 7 weight categories in Men and 6 weight categories in Women. At Tokyo Olympics, there were 8 weight categories in Men and 5 in Women.
- In weightlifting, there will be equal number of weight categories in Men and Women – 5 each. At Tokyo Olympics, weightlifting had 7 weight categories each for Men and Women. So, there is a reduction of weight categories in Weightlifting.
