Tokyo Olympics 101: Who's qualified for Team USA?

The United States Olympic Team for the Tokyo Games will be the country's second-largest ever. In total, 613 athletes were named to the team, though the team could ultimately expand to as many as 627 athletes by the end of the Games due to rules that allow countries to sub in alternates for several team events. Notably, the U.S. team will break the record for most women to represent a nation at a single Olympic Games.

Over the last several months, athletes have been named to the team as they secured their spots through either selection or direct qualification. Some athletes automatically earned spots once the qualification period for their sport officially ended, but many others needed to compete at U.S. Olympic Trials to earn their places.

Below is a list of athletes that have qualified to represent the U.S. in Tokyo, along with some background information on the qualification process.

Jump to a sport: Archery | Artistic Swimming | Badminton | Baseball | Basketball | Basketball 3x3 | Beach Volleyball | Boxing | Canoe/Kayak | Cycling | Diving | Equestrian | Fencing | Field Hockey | Golf | Gymnastics | Handball | Judo | Karate | Modern Pentathlon | Rhythmic Gymnastics | Rowing | Rugby | Sailing | Shooting | Skateboarding | Soccer | Softball | Sport Climbing | Surfing | Swimming | Table Tennis | Taekwondo | Tennis | Track & Field | Trampoline | Triathlon | Volleyball | Water Polo | Weightlifting | Wrestling

Baseball

By virtue of winning the Americas Qualifying Tournament in June, the U.S. has secured a spot in the six-team Olympic tournament. Because Major League Baseball won't be taking a break for the Olympics, there are no active MLB players on the roster. However, many of the players are either former pros or up-and-coming prospects within the farm systems of big-league clubs.

Basketball

The United States has qualified for both the men's and women's basketball tournaments in Tokyo. USA Basketball initially settled on a 12-man roster for the men's team but was given the flexibility to replace players if needed. Although some of its members, namely Devin Booker and the two Bucks players, have made deep runs in the NBA Playoffs, all three have reportedly committed to traveling to Tokyo no matter how tight the turnaround is. The team was forced to replace Wizards guard Bradley Beal after he entered the health and safety protocols a week before the Olympics, and Cavaliers forward Kevin Love withdrew due to a calf injury. Keldon Johnson and JaVale McGee were named to the team as replacements.

Basketball 3x3

The United States qualified a women's team in 3x3, but the men will miss out on the sport's Olympic debut. In Tokyo, the women’s team will be made up of some of the top WNBA players not on the 12-woman team in traditional basketball.

Women
Stefanie Dolson
Allisha Gray
Kelsey Plum
Katie Lou Samuelson

Beach Volleyball

With qualifying now complete, the four U.S. pairings for the Tokyo Games are set. Jake Gibb, 45, is set to become to oldest beach volleyball player to ever compete at the Olympics. On the women's side, Kerri Walsh Jennings and Brooke Sweat narrowly missed out on qualifying. Walsh Jennings had previously appeared at every Olympics (first as an indoor volleyball player, then a beach volleyball player) since 2000.

Men
Taylor Crabb/Jake Gibb
Phil Dalhausser/Nick Lucena

Women
Alix Klineman/April Ross
Kelly Claes/Sarah Sponcil

Boxing

A Pan-American qualification tournament planned for May was cancelled, which forced the Boxing Task Force to revise the qualification guidelines and allocate continental places to the Americas based on world rankings instead. Six boxers were named to the U.S. team in May, then three more boxers (Ragan, Davis, Isley) who had turned professional during the pandemic were added in June. Those three are set to become the first outright professional boxers to ever compete for the U.S. at the Olympics. The final member, Yarisel Ramirez, was allocated a spot in July to round out Team USA's 10-boxer squad.

Men
Featherweight: Duke Ragan
Lightweight: Keyshawn Davis
Welterweight: Delante Johnson
Middleweight: Troy Isley

Equestrian

The United States has qualified teams in all three disciplines (dressage, jumping, eventing), along with three individual spots in each discipline. Liz Halliday-Sharp was originally named to the eventing team, but her horse, Deniro Z, was later withdrawn. The duo was replaced by Doug Payne and Vandiver.

Fencing

The U.S. has earned the maximum number of quota spots by qualifying for all six of the team events, which also gives them three athletes in each of the individual competitions. The selection period for the U.S. team has concluded, and 24 athletes will make the trip to Tokyo. It will be the country's largest fencing team ever should all 24 athletes compete. The top three U.S. athletes in each discipline will compete in the individual events, while a fourth athlete per discipline has also been named as a replacement for the team events only. Replacement athletes can be subbed in mid-competition for strategic purposes.

Gymnastics

The United States has qualified for both the men's and women's team events. In addition, there are additional spots available for the individual competitions (two for the women, one for the men). With the exception of Jade Carey, who had already secured an individual spot based on results from the FIG Individual Apparatus World Cup Series events, the team was determined at Olympic Trials in June, with some gymnasts qualifying automatically by finishing in the top two of the all-around competition and others being picked by the committee.

Rugby

The U.S. men's and women's rugby teams have both qualified for Tokyo. Although teams can only have 12 players in their lineup for each match, a recent rule change will allow them to activate their alternate 13th player at any point during the tournament, giving teams greater roster flexibility and depth. Ben Pinkelman was originally named to the men's roster but was forced to withdraw due to a chronic back injury. Brett Thompson (originally named as the alternate) took Pinkelman’s place on the roster, and Cody Melphy was chosen as the new alternate.

Soccer

The U.S. women earned a spot after winning an Olympic qualifying tournament last year, and an 18-player roster was named in June that includes many names from the USWNT's 2019 World Cup-winning squad. Because of challenges resulting from the global pandemic (namely, the congested schedule in recent months), rosters were expanded to 22 players. This means that the four players originally selected as alternates (Campbell, Krueger, Macario, Williams) are now considered part of the full roster and are eligible to play in matches. Countries will still be limited to 18-player team sheets (11 starters plus seven substitutes) on matchdays. The U.S. men were unable to qualify for Tokyo and will miss a third straight Olympics.

The top two finishers in each event at Trials earned a spot in Tokyo, and the third and fourth-place finishers in certain events automatically qualified for the relay team. More relay participants were added to the team later pending the availability of roster spots.

Track & Field

The U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team was largely decided at Olympic Trials from June 18-27, with the exception of the marathoners who qualified through a separate trial in 2020. The top three finishers in each event at Trials made the Olympic roster, provided they had met the Olympic qualifying standard. Athletes who finished in the top three but did not have the qualifying standard had to wait and see if they would get in to the Olympic field via their world ranking. In some cases, athletes without the qualifying standard who were unable to get in via their ranking were replaced by athletes who finished behind them at Trials. Additional athletes, based on results from Trials, were also added to the relay pools.
