QualificationEdit

Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) can enter a maximum of 2 competitors, 1 per each gender. As hosts, China was given the maximum quota, but only selected a female athlete thus the other quota was reallocated to the next best Asian performer. A further 4, 2 in each gender was decided by the Tripartite Commission. The remaining 58 places shall be decided by qualification events, namely five continental qualification tournaments.[1]

To be eligible to participate at the Youth Olympics athletes must have been born between 1 January 1997 and 31 December 1998.[1]
