    It's not indicated on the IWF website, but the three Colombian cases are currently under review by the anti-doping division (ADD) of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), this is noted in the big ITA PDF update.

    At first the CAS has to confirm the bans, thereafter the IWF sanctions panel has to hand out the suspension of the MF. Given how long that took with Romania, and the fact we're now less than one month away from the first day of competition in Tokyo... yes, it seems probable that it won't happen in time.

    ---
    edit: I just noticed the Greek W59 was suspended (by whom?) so Kusterer GER has the Euro quota now.

    Acording to the Colombian Federation,an agreement was settled with ITA, instead of the 8 athletes,they are allowed to take two men and one woman,

    I’m willing to accept that a settlement was the best outcome available to the ITA given the short deadlines.

    But the outcome is a disgrace to sport. The Colombian Federation should have been banned from competing at Tokyo.

    Sorry, but this isn't acceptable. "Deals" is how this sport was ruined in the first place.

    Malaysia had the same amount of positives and they were effectively banned for two years, including Tokyo even though the sanctions were from before (!) the qualification started.

    This is blatantly unfair.

    Follow the damn rules. If it takes too long to enact, so be it. But the country needs to be suspended for a year, even if starts after Tokyo.

    Here is some breaking news.

    Samoa has just pulled all of their athletes out from the Olympics - so there will be three more athlete reallocations in the W87+, M67, and M96 categories.

    Can we quietly cancel this fiasco and hold the world champs in August instead?

    Colombia chose W64, M67 and M81.

    Vietnam lost their W49 entry as their quota was reduced to 1+1.

    Turkey lost their M61 entry, see above.

    The entries were updated today:

    At W87+ the Iranian lifter dropped out and a Guatemalan was added.

    At M73 the Korean Won Jeongsik was removed and Robu MDA entered.

    (since we're past July 5th, KOR can't replace their athlete)
