Colombian gymnast Ángel Barajas secured his qualification for his first Olympic Games by taking first place on the parallel bars during the Gymnastics World Cup in Doha, as announced by the Colombian Olympic Committee (COC).

With this achievement, Colombia reached a total of 49 places for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, after a series of four World Cup stops by devices that awarded tickets to the first two in each modality.
