A group of athletes has been included in the Target Olympic Podium Scheme, and India's upcoming long-jumper Shaili Singh finds herself on the list as well. A few months back only, Shaili had won a silver at the World U-20 Athletics Championship, and now is considered an Olympics-medal hope.

The TOPS is a flagship program run under the Indian sports ministry, which identifies and provides support to the potential medal winners at the Olympics. With the updated list, the total number of athletes in the list has now become 291, with 102 in the core group.

For the 2024 Olympics, athletes from as many as 13 disciplines have been identified, for the preparation. Among those, swimmer Riddhima Veerendra Kumar too finds her name, who is only 14-years-old. Recently, she had made her presence felt at the National Junior Championship.

Meanwhile, there are a few sports, from which the athletes will be added later. This includes equestrian, golf, gymnastics, judo and tennis.
