Among the various possible ways to measure the success of the 48 delegations in the third edition of the European Games, which reached its end last Sunday, there is one that seems to have an advantage: counting the number of direct places obtained for the next Olympic Games. Krakow - Małopolska 2023, the continent’s supreme multidisciplinary event in which nearly 7,000 athletes from 29 sports lived together, delivered 91 spots to Paris in 10 disciplines.

The notorious exclusions of Russia and Belarus, first and second in the medals table of the previous edition, paved the way for Italy as the new leader. Its 35 golds were reinforced with twelve guaranteed Olympic tickets, a figure only equaled by France.

None of the three core Olympic sports have been classified in these EG2023: neither gymnastics, in any of its three modalities, nor swimming were part of the program, while in athletics there were no places in dispute. In contrast, boxing distributed 44 direct flights, 22 by gender.

Of the 91 places, 47 were non-nominal. In this sense, the five rankings offered by archery, for example, fell on the winning CON and not the athletes. In the specialty of mixed team recurve, Miguel Alvariño and Elia Canales struck the blow and became European champions, but Spain as a country qualified for Paris.

In the French capital, artistic swimming will have men’s quotas for the first time in its Olympic life. However, at the European Games, where men also competed, it was only women with the same blood who won another of the non-nominal tickets. The outstanding Anna-Maria and Eirini Marina Alexandri were crowned two-time European champions on the fourth day of competition and awarded Austria the only classification in play, in the free duet event.

If chosen by their CON, the Alexandri sisters will face their third Olympic Game.

Like few other disciplines, rugby sevens in Paris 2024 now knows more than half of its participating teams: 14 of the 24. Seven in the women’s draw and the same amount in the men’s draw. The spots in discord in Krakow - Malopolska 2023 were left to the Great Britain women’s team, European champion after an overwhelming 33-0 win over the host in the final, and the men’s team from the Republic of Ireland, the executioner of their British neighbors in the gold medal match. The silver and bronze medalists earned a place in the repechage: Poland and the Czech Republic did so on the women’s side while Great Britain and Spain on the men’s side.

One special page was written by breaking, the urban sport that is preparing to savor its Olympic premiere: the first two European dancers to achieve Olympic status were decided. B-girl India Sardjoe from the Netherlands, winner of the women’s competition, was included in the Paris list, an achievement conquered, until then, only by the Moroccan Fatima El-Mamouny. On the male level, France will know who to root for: B-boy Dany Dann is the European champion and also joins a dancer from Morocco among the qualifiers (Bilal Mallakh).
