Secretary Ritesh Ratiram says they’re looking for new lifters between the ages of 16 to 19 to train for the 2019 World Championships and also its new Youth age category for ages 13 to 16.
Ratiram says this is a good chance for our youngsters to showcase their talents and take up the sport of weightlifting.
“Oceania Championship in Noumea is the qualification for the Youth Olympics in Argentina so in order to qualify you to need to take one athlete each per category and it’s a team based qualification. So they can come on down on Saturday and try out.”
The trial will be held at the National Fitness Centre in Laucala, Suva from 9am to 12 noon.
