Tokyo 2020 Weightlifting Qualification Standings

It is possible that further changes will be made to the qualification system

Qualification Based On Current System

Here is how each weight category looks based on applying the IWF process to the current standings:

Note that some things will change in these lists, even if the process itself is not changed. Some countries will exceed their maximum athlete quotas and will not be able to accept all of the slots offered to them. That will open up slots for other lifters to move up.

There is also a strong possibility that Colombia will receive a national suspension due to anti-doping test failures and will not be able to send any athletes to Tokyo.
