Considered the largest assembly of players for the Olympic Qualification Tournament, the city of Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is set to welcome some of Europe’s finest table tennis players. From May 15 to 19, the European Singles Qualifications for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games will take place at the Sport Arena, Hotel Hills Complex. Out of the six continental quotas allocated to Europe for each gender, five will be won in the European Olympic Singles Qualification Tournament, with one additional spot allocated by ranking on June 11, 2024.

A total of 47 men and 44 women from 26 nations will converge on Sarajevo, all competing for one of the 10 coveted tickets to Paris (five men and five women). Leading the seeding list in the men’s singles is 37-year-old two-time Olympian Daniel Habesohn, while his compatriot Karoline Mischek tops the seeding list in the women’s singles.

Habesohn aims to return to the Olympic Games after back-to-back qualifications for Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020. The Austrian star will face fierce competition from across Europe in Sarajevo.

Meanwhile, 24-year-old Mischek, a Youth Olympian and debutant at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, will focus on making her second appearance at the Games in Paris, France.

Among the notable contenders is Greece’s Panagiotis Gionis. The 44-year-old dentist has been competing at a high international level, aiming for his sixth appearance at the quadrennial event. However, he must overcome tough competition to realize his dream of traveling to Paris in July.
