The Competitive Smoking World Championship (CSWC) Season 2023 brought about seismic shifts and unprecedented surprises, setting the stage for an exhilarating Qualifier Season 2024. With record-breaking performances, unexpected triumphs, and disappointments, the landscape of competitive smoking saw a significant reshuffle, leaving enthusiasts eagerly anticipating what the next season holds.

Undoubtedly, the highlight of CSWC Season 2023 was Klaudia Ide's groundbreaking achievement. Ide shattered Igor Kovacic's long-standing world record with an astonishing smoking time of 3 hours and 53 minutes, etching her name in history as the first woman to hold the CSWC world record. Her accomplishment not only demonstrated exceptional skill but also broke barriers in a historically male-dominated sport, inspiring aspiring competitors worldwide.

Another notable surprise came in the form of the Norwegian duo, Tormod Skaaraas and Rolf Broch, whose remarkable smoking times of 3 hours 30 minutes and 3 hours 10 minutes, respectively, stunned the smoking community. Tormod's subsequent performance in the Grand Final affirmed his prowess, solidifying Norway's presence as a force to be reckoned with in competitive smoking.

Ivan Zizic's emergence from Croatia added another layer of excitement to the season. His strong showing positioned Croatia among the top contenders in the CSWC, signaling a promising future for the country's smoking community.

The United Kingdom's ascent to the "big league" was epitomized by Etan Patel's outstanding performance, exceeding the two-and-a-half-hour mark and firmly establishing the UK as a formidable competitor in the CSWC circuit.
