The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) sent a letter of confirmation to the Vietnam Weightlifting Federation late last week.

The letter said Thach Kim Tuan in the men's 61kg class, Vuong Thi Huyen in the women's 49kg category and Hoang Thi Duyen in the women's 59kg pool were all eligible to compete in Tokyo.

The Vietnamese governing body must send its confirmation by June 25. However, the IWF reserves the right to withdraw quotas or ban athletes from participation based on the decision of its Executive Board in accordance with the qualification system or decision of the Independent Member Federations Sanctioning Panel in accordance with anti-doping rules and athlete eligibility.
Vietnam has secured 13 berths at the Tokyo Games. They are in taekwondo (1), swimming (1), gymnastics (2), boxing (1), archery (2), rowing (1), badminton (2) and weightlifting (3). Meanwhile, one slot each in athletics and boxing will be announced in the coming weeks.
