India aims to secure Olympic quotas in three 400m relay events at the World Athletics Relays 2024. The competition will feature five relay categories: men’s 4x400m and 4x100m, women’s 4x400m and 4x100m and mixed 4x400m. However, India will only enter teams in the three 400m relay events – men’s, women’s and mixed.

A total of 893 athletes representing 54 countries will compete in the Bahamas. Among them, 15 athletes will campaign for India.

Amoj Jacob, Muhammed Anas Yahiya, Muhammad Ajmal and Rajesh Ramesh, the champions of the men’s 4x400m relay at the Hangzhou 2023 Asian Games will lead India’s charge. They are joined by Arokia Rajiv, Noah Nirmal Tom, Yashas Palaksha and Avinash Krishna Kumar. This formidable quartet holds the national and Asian records with a stellar time of 2:59.05 set at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest.

Amoj Jacob, Arokia Rajiv, Noah Nirmal Tom and Muhammad Anas Yahiya also represented India during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

India’s women’s 4x400m relay team consists of seven members, including the Hangzhou Asian Games silver medal-winning team: Vithya Ramraj, Aishwarya Mishra, Prachi and Subha Venkatesan. They are joined by experienced runner MR Poovamma, along with Jyothika Sri Dandi and Rupal.

Vithya Ramraj and Rajesh Ramesh are also included in the Indian mixed 4x400m team. They are joined by Jyothika Sri Dandi, Amoj Jacob, Rupa and Yashas.

All teams competing in the World Athletics Relays 2024 Bahamas have their sights set on securing spots for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. With 14 spots up for grabs in each event, the top two teams from each heat on day one will secure their spots in the finals and quotas for Paris 2024. Qualifying positions in the Olympic lanes will be determined in the finals and the teams will also compete for medals.

Additionally, teams that do not reach the final will have the opportunity to qualify in an additional round. A total of 32 teams will compete in the men’s 4×400 m relay, 27 in the women’s relay and 30 in the mixed relay.
