World titles and the first chance to cement National Olympic Committee (NOC) quota spots for trampoline at Paris 2024 ratchet up the tension at the Birmingham, UK-hosted event for the more than 1,000 gymnasts from 50 countries taking part from 9-12 November.
Trampoline is the only Olympic discipline at the championships in the Utilita Arena, but the world’s best in tumbling and double mini trampoline will be decided, too.
Fifteen world titles will be won across all disciplines with six of those for trampoline in men’s and women’s individual, synchro and team events. A minimum of four and maximum of eight gymnasts will obtain quotas to next summer’s Olympic Games in men’s and women’s individual trampoline.
The eight highest-ranked male and eight highest-ranked female athletes based on the results of the finals will each qualify one quota place for their NOC, with a maximum of one athlete per NOC.
Sixteen men and 16 women will ultimately participate in trampoline in Paris with up to half coming from the 2023 World Championships. The rest secure spots via the 2023-24 World Cup series, which began February 2023 and concludes April 2024. The remaining places are obtained via gymnasts’ respective continental meets in the first half of 2024.
As NOCs have the exclusive authority for the representation of their respective countries at the Olympic Games, athletes’ participation at the Paris Games depends on their NOC selecting them to represent their delegation at Paris 2024.
