Don’t be late for the 2024 IWF World Cup!

The last qualification event for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games – the IWF World Cup in Phuket (THA) – is around the corner and all National Member Federations are kindly reminded that they must proceed to the online verification of their Final Entries by this Sunday, March 17, 2024 at 12:00 (noon, CET), exactly two weeks before the start of the event.

To complete this procedure, National Federations must enter the IWF E-Entry System (here), click on the “VERIFICATION OF FINAL ENTRIES FOR 2024 IWF WORLD CUP, PHUKET, THA”  tab at the top of the page, and then confirm the athletes taking part in the World Cup or delete the ones that won’t be in Thailand.

As it happened in the last IWF events in 2023, and given the importance of the IWF World Cup and the associated TV exposure and visibility of the competition, namely of the A sessions, the IWF intends to ensure that the list of athletes announced after the verification of final entries corresponds to the number of lifters effectively competing in those sessions. This is of paramount importance to minimise the time gap between the time scheduled for TV purposes and the actual duration of each A session.

Therefore, National Federations are invited to use the “Weigh-In Only” button (in the right column) for athletes who do not wish to compete but are only weighing-in in Phuket.

By clicking on this box for a selected athlete, the Entry Total is automatically reduced to 60 kg.

If the athlete still wishes to compete, he/she may continue to do so with the 60 kg Entry Total, but will be placed in the weakest group of his/her bodyweight category.
