9. TEAM CANADA
If you are interested in competing in the IUKL or WKSF World Championships for 2021 (online or in person), you will need to qualify. In order to do that you must lift the appropriate bell weight for the World Competition, as well as fall into the proper weight category for the organization in which you wish to compete with. For example: if the weight category for women's biathlon is 65kg (63kg IUKL) and you want to ONLY qualify for WKSF, then weighing in under 65kg is ok. However, if you want to compete with IUKL or BOTH WKSF and IUKL, then you will need to choose to either weigh in 63kg or 68kg category as IUKL does not have the 65kg weight class. We have identified the differences here, as well as on the registration form.
