The Olympic qualifying period for judo ends on June 23, 2024. At that point, the world ranking list will be finalized, and U.S. athletes can qualify for the Olympics in one of two ways:

  • Any athlete ranked in the top 17 of their weight class will qualify directly for Paris 2024. Countries can only qualify one athlete per weight class, so the top 17 is after any additional qualifiers from the same country are removed.
  • One additional athlete can qualify via the continental ranking list. The continental ranking list includes all athletes, irrespective of gender and weight class, that did not directly qualify via a top-17 world ranking.
