Every Team GB athlete that has qualified for the 2024 Paris Olympics so far

As anticipation for the Paris 2024 Olympics begins to ramp up, we’re beginning to discover exactly which Brits will be bound for France come July.

The vast majority of Olympic hopefuls are still yet to find out whether their sporting dreams will be fulfilled, with Team GB having officially selected their full quota of athletes in just four sports thus far.

On the water, Team GB have revealed their squads for sailing and canoe slalom – while also announcing athletes for triathlon and the marathon.

That said, there have also been a fair few athletes that have qualified in their own right, booking their place at the upcoming Games pre-selection.

Here’s every Team GB athlete that’s qualified for Paris 2024 so far – as well as few big names you should expect to see at the Games.


Track and field athletes can achieve the entry standard for the Olympics by either world ranking or by passing the direct qualifying mark.

However, after becoming eligible, athletes then need to make Team GB selection – meaning not all qualifying athletes will necessarily make the trip to Paris.

While not yet confirmed to be travelling, the likes of Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Bromley‘s Dina Asher-Smith and Jake Wightman are all highly expected to be selected.

As of yet, only marathon athletes have been selected to compete in Team GB’s athletics team in Paris.

Charlotte Purdue and Calli Haugher-Thackery both earned their place in the women’s race after running a time of 2:22:17 in separate marathons at the end of 2023.

They are joined in the squad by Phil Sesemann, who earns selection for the men’s race after running inside the qualification standard [2:08:04] in the Seville Marathon in February.

After having the opportunity to make the grade at the World Indoor Championships in March, selection for each track and field event is expected in the coming weeks and months.


After similarly achieving the entry standard for the Olympics, swimmers will have to make British Swimming’s selection to travel to Paris.

The only event to have its swimmers confirmed is the 10km open water race – with Leah Crisp, Hector Pardoe and Tobias Robinson all booking a place in their respective events at the 2024 Aquatics Championships in Doha, Qatar.

While not yet confirmed as in the squad, Olympic champions Adam Peaty, James Guy and Freya Anderson are among those expected to earn selection.


After top two finishes at the 2023 European Games, Charley Davison and Rosie Eccles, along with Delicious Orie, were the first three British boxers to qualify for the Olympics.

They’re joined by men’s heavyweight Patrick Brown and women’s middleweight Chantelle Reid, who secured their place at March’s Olympic qualification tournament in Busto Arsizio, north west of Milan.

British-Cameroonian bruiser Cindy Ngamba will also be travelling to Paris come July after similar success in Italy – but will be representing the Olympic Refugee Team, hosted by Team GB, at the Games due to the fact she doesn’t possess a British passport.

Davison is currently the only boxer travelling with Team GB to have Olympic experience after fighting in Tokyo, with Orie, Eccles, Brown and Reid all debutantes in the competition.

Fighters still have a shot at booking their spot in Paris, with a final qualification taking place in Bangkok between May 23 and June 5.


The second team to be officially announced, Kimberley Woods, Joe Clarke, Mallory Franklin and Adam Burgess have all been selected to compete in the canoe slalom in Paris.

Woods, Clarke and Franklin will also compete in the kayak cross event, which debuts at the 2024 Games.

This comes after Team GB qualified boats at the 2023 European Games and 2023 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships in Lee Valley.

Field hockey

Both Britain’s men and women’s teams qualified for the Olympics by earning a top-three finish at the 2024 FIH Olympic Qualifiers.

The squads are yet to be finalised, but expect to see the likes of Sam Ward, James Gall, Hollie Pearne-Webb and Darcy Bourne in the respective ranks.

Modern pentathlon

Defending champion Joe Choong and Olympic rookie Olivia Green both booked their spot at the Games after finishing among the top eight pentathletes eligible for qualification at the 2023 European Games.

They will be joined by Kerenza Bryson, who gained a quota by winning bronze at the UIPM World Championships that same year.

With a final spot available for a male modern pentathlete, British athletes will have a last shot at Olympic qualification at the upcoming UIPM Worlds in Zhengzhou, China.

Rugby sevens

Britain’s women’s rugby sevens team has qualified for the Olympics after winning gold at the 2023 European Games.

The men’s team will have a shot at qualification in June’s final Olympic qualification tournament, held in Monaco in June.


Olympic medallists Emma Wilson, John Gimson and Anna Burnet are among 10 sailors confirmed to be making the trip to Marseille.

Wilson is joined by Sam Sills and Ellie Aldridge, who also represent GB in the elimination events.

Michael Beckett and Hannah Snellgrove will attack the solo medal events, while partnerships of James Peters/Fynn Sterritt and Freya Black/Saskia Tidey join sailing power couple Gimson/Burnet in the two-sailor medal races.

After picking up silver at March’s 470 World Championships, Vita Heathcote and Martin Grube could be rewarded for securing another Team GB boat at the Games with Olympic berths of their own – but that is yet to be confirmed.

Sport climbing

After winning the European continental qualifying event in France, Tony Roberts has booked his place at the Olympics.

Other climbers will have the chance to qualify in the Olympic Qualifier Series, which first takes place in Shanghai (May 16-19) and then Budapest (June 20-23).


Team GB have qualified four athletes by virtue of placing in the top five in the Olympic rankings in their respective events.

Two-time Olympic champion Jade Jones and Tokyo silver medallist Brady Sinden are joined by Rebecca McGowen and Caden Cunningham.

A final European qualification tournament takes place in Sofia, Bulgaria in mid-March, offering a last chance for British fighters to book their place in Paris.


Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Alex Yee and Beth Potter are the two confirmed triathletes readying themselves for Paris, filling up half of Team GB’s four quota spots for the individual event.

Athletes are yet to qualify for the relay event, with the opportunity coming in the form of the 2024 World Triathlon Mixed Relay Olympic Qualification Event in May.
