How to claim your WCA ID

So you have attended your first WCA competition. How do you get your WCA ID?

What is a WCA ID?

WCA ID is your code name. Once you attend a WCA competition for the first time, a unique ID is generated for you. Your future timings will be historically recorded here for referencing and ranking.

How can I get it?

Once the results are published, your account will likely automatically have the ID bound to it. If not, you have to claim it. Spot registration participants must claim their ID after the event, as it will not be automatically bound.
