South American and Ibero-American Championships Postponed

The Colombian Weightlifting Federation has decided to postpone the South American, Ibero-American and Open Senior Championships, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

The competition was to have been held from 18th–23rd March and would have been a silver-level Olympic qualification event.

This postponement leaves only the Pan American Championships slated to take place between now and the end of April. Olympic qualification is due to end then but may be extended to accommodate competitions postponed to June.

See our Coronavirus roundup for more information on the impact of the pandemic on weightlifting.

China Chant T – Now In Blue!

In recognition of a dominant peformance from Team China at 2019 Worlds, we have launched this new t-shirt. It features the "jia yo" chant that is often heard from Chinese supporters at major competitions.

We have added this blue version to the original red.
