Last year the ITTF submitted a proposal to the International Olympic Committee to add a mixed doubles medal to the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic program. The IOC Executive Board will decide whether to approve the ITTF’s proposal during their meeting in Saint Petersburg, Russia on 29th -31st May 2013.

Key points are:

- The mixed doubles event will include 16 pairs
- The pairs will be made up of players already qualified from the teams and individual events. This means the 86 men and 86 women quota will stay the same
- National OC will be able to enter 4 out of 5 events. For example, if France qualifies in men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s team, women’s team and mixed doubles, they would have to choose which 4 events that would like to play in.
