Commenting on the decision, Tokyo 2020 President Yoshiro Mori said:

“The IPC has just informed us that the medal event programme and athlete quotas of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games were approved by its Governing Board today. Less than three years is left until the Opening Ceremony of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, and I am delighted that the total athlete quota and the event programme for 19 out of 22 sports have now been finalised.

“The IPC's decision will lead to the highest ever representation of female athletes at a Paralympic Games, with at least 1,756 slots now secured for them. This clearly demonstrates the IPC's drive to achieve a better gender balance at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and will ensure the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games helps further promote the Paralympic Movement.

“Boccia, which is gaining more and more popularity in Japan, has been allocated an increased number of slots. I believe it is an impactful decision to further advance the IPC's initiative to provide increased opportunities for athletes with high support needs.”

“Prior to this Governing Board meeting, Tokyo 2020 requested the IPC to consider the impact on budgets, and to avoid any extra venue development. I'd like to express my appreciation to President Craven, Chief Executive Officer Gonzalez and the other IPC governing board members for putting together such a fascinating event programme.”
