The fastest qualifier awards will be determined from the 3rd Run of time trial only. The Race Brackets will still be defined by the overall qualification in the Time Trial phase.

ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL MODIFICATIONS

During practice, any athlete having a time more than 50% slower than the fastest person (of the same discipline) may be excluded from timed qualifying, starting from the 1st Run, at the discretion of World Skate.

PRE-SEEDED ATHLETES

The final results in the Philippines World Championships 2023 will define a set of Pre-seeded athletes. The Pre-seeded athletes will be the top 5 ranked athletes in each discipline and gender. The defined Pre-Seeded athletes will get the following benefits for the next World Skate event:
