Olympic Team Selection

These championships served as the first part of the German Olympic Qualifications. The second part of quallifying will take place on June 22, 2024. The German selection procedures indicate that athletes who demonstrate medal winning routines at the two qualifying competitions will be selected for the German Olympic team. Only Lukas Dauser reached that feat on the parallel bars. Since he already demonstrated his potential at an major international event, should he repeat these results at the second qualifying event, he will be considered a lock for the Olympic team.


The German Selection Committee will then use data from the two comeptitions to select the highest scoring team. If the results are not clear, they will then consider some discretionary criteria including, but not limited to athletes' abilities, restrictions, and ability to perform under pressure.
