Previously, the largest amount of Australian boxers to compete at an Olympic Games was 11 at the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

Only five boxers participated at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games where Harry Garside placed third on the podium, securing a bronze medal – Australia’s first Olympic medal in boxing since 1988.

This year will also be the largest number of female Australian boxers to compete at six, including World Championships silver medallist Caitlin Parker who will become the first women’s boxer from Australia to compete in more than one Olympic Games.

Apart from Garside and Parker, the remaining 10 athletes have not taken to the ring at an Olympic Games before.

All 12 members were nominated by Boxing Australia to the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) to compete after exemplary performances in the Oceanic qualifiers at the 2023 Pacific Games.

On March 18th, 2024 the AOC accepted the nominations, thus confirming the Australian Olympic boxing team.

The boxing competition at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will take place from July 24th until August 10th. 

Preliminary boxing matches will occur at Arena Paris Nord in Villepinte, with both the semifinals and finals to take place at the iconic Roland Garros Stadium in the heart of Paris.
