The Puerto Rican Olympic Committee is not throwing in the towel to reach the 40 athletes qualified for Paris 2024

The president of the Puerto Rico Olympic Committee (COPUR)Sara Rosario was satisfied with the number of Puerto Rican athletes who have joined the national delegation for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games and has not lost hope that at least three more competitors in the sport of athletics can qualify.

The National Team for the summer competition has 38 competitors in 13 sports. This represents one more athlete than those who went to Tokyo 2020, where the count closed with 37 participants.

The men’s national basketball team begins its participation in the FIBA Olympic Repechage in which they are fighting for a place at the multi-sport event in France. If they win the tournament, there would be 12 additional athletes.

Likewise, Puerto Rico could add three more athletes if the World Athletics certifies John Rivera (800 meters), Jerome Vega (hammer) and Gladymar Torres (100 meters) by invitation. The trio all fell out of the rankings in their events at the close of the list following the weekend’s competitions.
