Olympic and Paralympic Games—Paris 2024

These Games will be conducted from 27th July to 12th August with a limited 3 year preparation given the postponement of the Tokyo Games to 2021. 

Olympic Rankings

To be determined.


The 2023 World Championships were the primary qualification event for the Olympic Games with the secondary qualification event for the Australians being the Final Qualification Regatta at Lucerne in 2024. 

Australia qualified the following boats at 2023 World Championships:

Australia allowed a women's lightweight double scull, men's scull, men's double scull and men's quad to try out for qualification at the Lucerne Final Qualification Regatta in May. Sadly, none of these crews qualified although both the women's lightweight double and the men's double finished tantalizingly close in third place, just one place off the qualifying quota of two. These crews were:

Women's Lightweight Double Scull - Bow: Anneka Reardon (ACT)Str: Georgia Miansarow (NSW)

Men's Scull - Oscar McGuinness (NSW)

Men's Double Scull - Bow: Dave Bartholot (NSW), Str: Marcus Della Marta (NSW)

Men's Quad Scull - Bow: Jack Cleary (WA), 2: Caleb Antill ACT), 3: Campbell Watts (NSW), Str: Alexander Rossi (WA)

Australia will race in Paris with nine boats and 37 athletes poised to go, the fifth strongest team. Strongest of 57 National Olympic Committee (NOC) teams will be Romania (12/45), then the United States (12/42), Great Britain (10/42), the Netherlands (10/33), Australia (9/37), New Zealand (9/20), Italy (8/35), Germany (7/23), Ireland (7/16) and finally Switzerland (6/17).
