    This could be the second step in a downward spiral. PRK also withdrew from the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

    Voluntary absence with questionable reasoning -> exclusion as punishment -> doubling down.

    I think it's more likely COVID related since they just rejected millions of doses from China and previously from Russia and South Korea.

    I had a look at the average podium totals of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games vs. the 2021 National Games of China. The absence of North Korea deflated the Tokyo numbers a bit, as expected.

    Do we think the 2021 Asian champs will happen at all? Don't have a date, city or country yet.

    I still don't think we need another PanAms or Worlds this year and the same goes for Asians.

    the only reason I think we're bothering is because there are fiscal contracts on the line aka money to be made.

    I haven't personally asked, but I could chase it up if you'd like.

    It could simply be cancelled and results pulled from Worlds to determine the medals, as Commonwealth Senior Championships will do. It could also be run online as per the new IWF Online Event Regulations under which the Oceania Championships was run last week. As far as I know, this competition will count as a qualifier for the 2022 Commonwealth Games should the IWF and CGF allow it. The results aren't on the IWF results section yet but I suspect that's usually just the slow rate at which results are typically uploaded.

    To be frank, I do not take "online" competitions seriously. Rules and such may be followed, I still don't care.

    WWC is fine from my point of view, since we technically had none in 2020 or 2021. However, agreed for Continental champs.

    After the verification of entries, Nasar BUL M81 was still listed for the current Euro Juniors. But he did not compete. #eyeroll

    I wonder how long Nasar/Bulgaria will be able to maintain his high level of lifting under the current testing protocols.
