    In case anybody cares about the mechanics of final selection, on 4 June the national federations made their selections for athletes who qualified in more than one bodyweight class.

    The selections have now been loaded into the qualifying table - and names have been removed from the categories in which athletes will not be competing. So you can now see all of the team choices that have been made:

    FWIW there is some interesting stuff in here. I can see at least one top-8 ranked athlete that has simply disappeared from the final rankins with no explanation.

    It began yesterday but won't be final until the 9th. There are still double entries (Shi Zhiyong at 81 etc.).

    Thanks. This is really helpful and explains the apparent discrepancies.

    This is an interesting wrinkle. The IWF results page now has results from an event called 2020 Junior Extra that was held in Tashkent alongside the recent Junior World Champs

    https://www.iwf.net/new_bw/results_by_events/?event=517

    The DOBs for the athletes make it clear that these are former junior athletes who aged out of the category in 2021. But what makes it interesting is that although many of the competitors went to Tashkent simply to weigh in for a more favourable Olympic category - some of the athletes lifted and posted totals (so it wasn't just a virtual competition for the purpose of enforcing whereabouts reporting).

    I have double-checked the Tokyo qualifying table and the results from this event are being counted as a gold qualifying event for the purposes of ROBI rankings. Which means that athletes who turned 21 this year have received the opportunity for an extra gold scoring event.

    So there is no confusion, I am not expressing an opinion about the rightness or wrongness of this. I just thought it was very interesting as it has an effect on the final rankings and I hadn't seen it reported elsewhere.

    IIRC this extra session was part of the invitation document and not ad-hoc.

    Ranking still not updated although the deadline to choose the category ended on the 8th.

    Whilst it clears up things from the point of view of eligibility, one lifter per country and one class per athlete, the not knowing about the suspended countries still really makes things blurry.
