Paris-2024: Number 1 in the Caucasus - ANALYSIS

The next Summer Olympic Games will be held this year.

Idman.biz reports that the most prestigious multi-sport competition of the quadrennial will be hosted by Paris, the capital of France.

The opening ceremony of the Olympics is exactly six months away. Half a year before the important test, the situation in the license "war" of the national teams and athletes is of interest.

For the third time in Coubertin's homeland, the compatriots of Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the Modern Olympics, will witness the Games for the third time in his capital. Paris was awarded for the first time in 1900. The capital city, which hosted the Summer Olympic Games in 1924, will open its arms to world sports again after 100 years. The opening ceremony of the XXXIII Olympic Games will take place on July 26. 32 sports will be contested in Paris-2024, which will last until August 11. Athletes will determine the owner of 329 sets of medals in 17 days in Coubertin's homeland. Considering that the competition in some sports will start two days before the opening, the French will experience 19 days of Olympic excitement.

A different Olympics

Paris-2024 will go down in history with a difference. For the first time, athletes will complete the 3-year cycle in a multi-sport event. The reason for this is that the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games have been postponed and will be held in 2021. The delay of the race in Japan by a year resulted in three years remaining until Paris. The effect of the coronavirus pandemic on Tokyo-2020 did not escape the athletes. Those who wish to go to the French capital and claim licenses will have to settle for less time to realize their wishes. This made the dreams of some come to naught, and others took advantage of such a situation.

Our "nine years"

Of course, the three-year cycle, not four, affects the Azerbaijani national team to a certain extent. 6 months before the Olympics, our team has already won 9 qualifications. Our representatives achieved this in 6 different ways. Ruslan Lunev (shot put, 10 m), Murad Allahverdiyev (boxing, 80 kg), Mahammad Abdullayev (boxing, +92 kg), Anna Skidan (athletics, fencing), Zohra Aghamirova (rhythmic gymnastics), Magomedkhan Magomedov (freestyle wrestling, 97 kg), Sanan Suleymanov (Greco-Roman wrestling, 77 kg), Hasrat Jafarov (Greco-Roman wrestling, 67 kg) and Gashim Magomedov (taekwondo, 58 kg) are no longer thinking about qualifying for Paris, but about performing successfully in France. The preparation of each of them continues in this direction.

About half of the athletes who will compete in Paris-2024, where more than 10,000 athletes will participate, have already found their owners . To date, 5147 athletes have received licenses. They represent the national teams of 138 different countries. However, he will participate in the team of neutral athletes in France. 12 members of this team have formalized their Olympic ticket. This means that the participation of 139 teams has already been confirmed. This number is expected to exceed 200. Of course, it should be taken into account that the International Olympic Committee will give "wild-card" to some members.

The clear leader in the number of licenses shared with Mongolia

is France. This is also understandable. It has been determined that 434 representatives of the hosts, who have the right to participate in all competitions, will experience Olympic excitement. The number of licenses in the USA has exceeded 400. Australia is third in this list. In general, 14 countries have conquered the barrier of 100, 30 teams 50 qualifications. Azerbaijan, which has 9 such licenses, has the same indicator as Mongolia. Our country shares the 69th-70th place.

Azerbaijan is the first in the Caucasus and the 5th in the post-Soviet space, ahead of both of its neighbors in the Caucasus. Armenia and Georgia lag behind in the number of licenses. Only 4 cards of the latter and 7 cards of the Armenians have been determined.

Azerbaijan is 5th in the territory of the former USSR. Ukraine is ahead of everyone with 64 licenses. Lithuania has 22, Kazakhstan 18, Uzbekistan 16. So far, only Turkmenistan has not been able to obtain a license. The admission of Russia and Belarus to the Olympics is still in question.

Great Britain is the closest follower of France, which is the 1st among the 29 European countries in Europe . Germany is the third of the "Old Continent". The Azerbaijani national team is ranked 29th among European countries. Only 28 teams are ahead of our team. The national team of Brother Turkiye is 31st in the world and 17th in Europe. "Mini-Stars" has already obtained 49 licenses.
