A total of 33 available slots, with 22 for the MEN and 11 for women, saw Algeria grabbed seven slots - the highest from the continent for the Olympic Games.

Algeria is followed by Morocco with six slots, Cameroon and Zambia picked three slots each with Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and Tunisia picking two slots each.
