Irfan Thodi is the only one from athletics to have qualified so far.
The mark for javelin is 85m, hoping Neeraj and Shivpal Singh will achieve that standard by end of this year.
The standard set by IAAF across all events is quite high, so rest of them will have to put their best foot forward.

The next closest event which counts for Tokyo Olympic qualifications is world archery championships from 10th to 16th June in Netherlands where top 8 teams in mens and womens recurve team events will qualify and will also get 3 individual athlete spots there.

Nothin much really can be said about our archery teams as due to mess in our federation, our archers could not compete in 1 of the 3 world cup events this year, a second string team was sent for the second world cup and they fared poorly in the third world cup.
