List of Indian Participants at Tokyo Olympics 2020

4 minute read
List of 115 Indian athletes that qualified for the Upcoming Tokyo Olympics 2021

Covid – 19 turned everybody’s life upside down. Work from home and online learning became the new normal. For the first time, the CBSE class 12th boards were cancelled,  various entrance exams were postponed and many events got cancelled. Much awaited Olympics 2020 was postponed due to the global pandemic. After a year-long wait, the Olympics are finally just a few days away. 

12 Indian athletes have qualified for the Tokyo Olympics so far. In the 2016 Rio Olympics, 117 Indian athletes had qualified but couldn’t match up to the medals haul from the 2012 London Games, which remains India’s highest medal tally at a single Olympic Games – six medals. We are hoping that threshold could be crossed in Tokyo with quite a few Indian athletes topping the world ranking charts.  The men’s and women’s hockey teams form the biggest fraction of the contingent. This is followed by shooting and athletics. In this blog, we have listed the game-wise participants of the Olympics from India.
