Not the top six at the World Wrestling Championships, but only the top five wrestlers in all 18 weight categories will earn a quota place for the Paris Olympics 2024. Thus 18 quota places have been removed from the 2023 World Championships and added to the World Qualifiers, which will be the last chance to qualify for the Paris Olympics.

United World Wrestling (UWW) President Nenad Lalovich was quoted as saying by the official website of the world governing body of wrestling that the change was made to ensure fairness in the distribution of quota places between the World Championships and the World Qualifiers. The World Championships will be played in Russia from 16 to 24 September next year.

In addition to the World Championships 2023, the continental qualifiers (Asia, Africa, Pan-America, European) to be held in 2024 and the 2024 World Olympic Qualifiers will also provide quotas for the Games. Earlier in the World Championships 108 quota places (six places in each weight category) were given but now their number has come down to 90. Players securing quota places in the World Championship 2023 will not be entitled to participate in the continental qualifiers. He can participate in any other genre though.

Bajrang Poonia (65kg), Ravi Dahiya (57kg), Deepak Poonia (86kg) and Vinesh Phogat (53kg) from India qualified for the Tokyo Games from the 2019 World Championships in Noor Sultan, while Anshu Malik (57kg) and Sonam Malik (62kg) qualified through the Asian Championships in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
