As per IWF rules, all the National Federations should ensure that their potential participating athletes are included in the Preliminary Entries because no lifters will be accepted after the 31st of December, 2023.

Along with that, this date is also the last deadline for all athletes to send information about their whereabouts according to the IWF Anti-Doping Rules. If this procedure is not completed on time, the lifters that are not compliant cannot compete in Phuket next year.
