    Tokyo 2020 Weightlifting Qualification Standings/ Extension of the Qualification

    Hello All,

    The IOC approved the IWF request for an extension to the Tokyo Qualification Period,found here http://https://www.iwf.net/2021/03/0...cation-period/

    - Current standings , http://https://www.weightliftinghous...ion-standings/

    - Nations with limited quotas , http://https://www.weightliftinghous...due-to-doping/ . This also has to be updated Ex: Romania ,Colombia and Venezuela face Nation ban

    I know there is a lot of uncertainty , several competitions to be held and that the iwf hasn't yet revealed the amended qualification system...

    What are your predictions for which athletes will be send by each nation ???

    They really do need to sort of what will happen with the qualifying because so many lifters will not be in compliance in terms of a competition in this 3B period. Has anyone even seen any proposals leaked?

    I will only look at rankings after May again. At the moment they're bordering on useless with all of the restrictions and possible bans.

    This is the proposed alterations to Tokyo qualifying.

    https://www.insidethegames.biz/media...fing+paper.pdf

    Basically, Total number of qualifying event appearances dropped from 6 to 5.

    A virtual comp proposed for May 31st which will be Gold tier, the ROBI point though averaged against previous scores - seems reasonable and I can't see any other way it could have been done.


    'To achieve the above, the following minor amendments are proposed:

    1.Qualification period extension until 31 May 2021;

    2.The minimum of athlete participation events is reduced from six (6) to five (5), including a minimum of one (1) participation during period 1, period 2 and period 3.B;

    3.For athletes that demonstrated an intention to qualify in an Olympic category by already competing once in the category in period 1, 2, and 3.A, the minimum participation in the Olympic category is reduced from two (2) to one (1);

    If zero (0) participation in an Olympic category was completed in period 1, 2, and 3.A; two(2) participations in the same Olympic category are still required in period 3.B.;

    4.A Gold level qualification event shall be held before 31 May 2021 in Jeddah, KSA(on the occasion ofthe 2021 IWF Junior World Championships) for athletes eligible for qualification born in 2000 and other athletes eligible for qualification who otherwise did not compete in their 2021 Continental Championships.

    5.The virtual Gold level event will be held on 31 May 2021 and shall provide all eligible athletes, subject to Anti-Doping whereabouts compliance for this virtual event, an opportunity to record a virtual result. Whereabout information shall be submitted as of 01 April 2021 until 31 May 2021.

    6.The virtual result shall be drawn as an average (in ROBI points) from the best results (in ROBI points –Total results only) from period 1 and period 2 or from period 1, period 2 and period 3.A–whichever result is higher;

    7.Participation in the virtual Gold level event to be held on 31 May 2021will be counted as an official competition participation in period 3.B.But the result drawn from the virtual event will not be taken into consideration as an Olympic category participation;

    8.In fairness to all eligible athletes, the calculation of the published virtual result will be made at the start of period 3.B but will be only added (if applicable) to an athlete’s overall Absolute Ranking Points on 31 May 2021;

    9.At the end of the qualification period; an athlete’s final Absolute Ranking Points; subject to participation as required in point 3. above will be drawn from four (4) results (ROBI points for Total results only), including the result from the virtual event as required.'

    Thank you very much for linking this.

    I'd be grateful if somebody could check my interpretation of this document. Am I correct in thinking that:

    1. It is being proposed that the virtual ROBI score will only be calculated and applied to athletes who did not compete in period 3?

    2. The athletes who did manage to complete their scoring/appearances in period 3 will keep their existing ROBI scores i.e. their qualifying total will not be adjusted by virtual score?

    My interpretation would be 'yes' to both of those. It would seem that athletes who are able to attend an in-person continental championships will have a slight advantage in being able to improve their final ROBI points.

    I don't understand point 6 at all. What does "the virtual result shall be drawn as an average [...]" mean?
