World Athletics continue to improve and innovate to support athletes and to keep fans interested.

The latest is the launch of the Road to Tokyo 2020 qualification tracking tool. The tracking tool was created so that fans and athletes can follow the chase to qualify and secure spots for the Olympic Games of 2021.

The tool provides a real-time view of every event over the course of the qualification process. The evolving results will be searchable and categorised by event, country and qualification status.

The qualifying period ends on June 29, 2021. This was planned to go ahead of the rescheduled Games which are now taking place one year later, from July 23 to August 8, 2021.

Those athletes who have already qualified and have been nominated or selected to their respective teams may remain qualified.

The qualification period was postponed to start from November 30, 2020.
