Cuba GP: new dates, new entry deadlines

Following the recent change of dates of the 2023 IWF Grand Prix I in Havana (CUB), now taking place from June 8-18, the deadline to submit preliminary entries for the competition was also modified: it is now March 8, three months before the start of the event.

The IWF has sent a Circular to all its Member Federations (MF) informing them on this new deadline. Moreover, in accordance with the IWF rules, it is mandatory to register all athletes by March 8, so that the whereabouts information about the competitors is taken into account (Article 5.5.16 of the IWF Anti-Doping Rules).

For the time being, and for the purpose of the Preliminary Entries, each MF can register up to 20 athletes per gender, which will then be reduced to a maximum of 10 male and 10 female athletes (+2 reserve athletes per gender) with the occasion of the Final Entry submission.

Along with the 2023 IWF World Championships and the Continental Championships, the IWF Grand Prix in the Cuban capital is also a Qualifying Event for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The second 2023 IWF Grand Prix having also this important status will be held later in the year, in December, in Doha (QAT).
