Rowing at the 2020 Summer Olympics – Qualification

This article details the qualifying phase for rowing at the 2020 Summer Olympics. The majority of the spots will be awarded to the NOCs, not to specific athletes, at the 2019 World Rowing Championships, held in Ottensheim, Austria from 25 August to 1 September 2019.[2] At the World Championships countries qualify boats rather than crews and can make crew changes for the Olympic regatta for qualified boats. Further berths are distributed to the nations at four continental qualifying regattas in Asia and Oceania, Africa, Latin America, and Europe, the latter being the final Olympic qualification regatta in Lucerne, Switzerland. At these further regattas the rowers who qualify the boats have to row in these boats at the Olympics.

All qualifying NOCs are limited to one berth per event, and only NOCs with fewer than two berths from the World Championships may compete in the continental qualifying regattas. Host nation Japan will be automatically granted a berth each in the men's and women's single sculls, in case the nation fails to qualify for any rowing event at the various regattas.[1]
