East Asian Championships Cancelled

The East Asian Weightlifting Championships, due to start 27th February in Seoul, has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

The competition was due to be a silver-level Olympic qualifier. It’s cancellation could, therefore, cause problems for athletes who planned to use a result from it as part of their qualification requirements.

The West Asian Championships in Dubai will go ahead.
