Best Chances of India in Badminton at the Olympics 2024

As almost all of these players can defeat the greatest on their day, winning numerous medals is a real possibility.

After Chirag-Satwik won the gold medal at the Asian Games in 2018, Ashwini Ponappa and Tanisha Crasto, who won Super 100 championships late in the year and advanced to the final of the Syed Modi International BWF Super 300 tournament, were the first Indian doubles combination to take the top place in the global rankings.

Under the leadership of PV Sindhu, Indian badminton players secured five quota spots for their nation at the 2024 Olympics in Paris.

Securing the quota was former world champion PV Sindhu, who earned bronze in Tokyo 2020 and silver in Rio 2016. Sindhu placed 12th on the Race to Paris Ranking List.

A position for their national teams at the Olympics is guaranteed for athletes who place in the top 16 (up to two per nation) of the men's and women's Race to Paris Rankings. The qualifying period began on May 1, 2023, and ended on April 28 of this year.

In the men's singles, world champion medallists HS Prannoy and Lakshya Sen both obtained quotas. Sen is ranked 13th on the list, and Prannoy is ranked 9.

With Ashwini Ponappa and Tanisha Crasto placing 13th in the women's doubles and Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy taking third place in the men's doubles, India was able to claim the final two quotas in doubles competitions.

India is anticipated to send the joint-largest badminton squad at the Olympics after obtaining seven badminton quotas. Seven shuttlers from India competed at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Since badminton's 1992 debut in Barcelona, two Indian athletes have medaled at the Olympics: Saina Nehwal (bronze at London 2012) and PV Sindhu.

National Olympic Committees (NOCs) with two or more pairs rated inside the top eight in the doubles receive two quota slots (for four athletes) and one quota place (for two athletes) if only one pair is placed inside the top sixteen. Using the Paris rankings list, a total of sixteen pairs advanced to the finals in each of the doubles categories. Athletes' ability to compete in the Paris Games is contingent upon their NOC choosing to represent their delegation in Paris in 2024. NOCs hold the unique right to represent their nations in the Olympic Games.
