Three days more for Verification of Final Entries for Riyadh 2023!

IWF Member Federations entered for the 2023 IWF World Championships have until this Monday, August 21, at 12h00 (noon) CET to proceed to the verification of their final entries, submitted by July 4, 2023. In this last step before the participation of their teams in Riyadh (KSA), National Member Federations may confirm or delete the participation of their athletes, but they can also choose the option “Only Weigh-in”.

This possibility was introduced to ensure that the list of athletes announced after the verification of final entries corresponds to the number of lifters effectively competing in A sessions. This relates with the importance of the IWF World Championships and the associated TV exposure and visibility of those sessions. The idea is to minimise the eventual time differences between what is programmed and scheduled for TV purposes and what is the real duration of each A session.

After the August 21 deadline for verification of final entries, no further changes can be made to the data submitted by the IWF Member Federations.

This procedure can be made through the IWF E-Entry System (link here)
