Oceania Championships Update

Unfortunately, due to the COVID outbreak in NZ and the current alert level settings, Weightlifting NZ is unable to compete in the 2021 Oceania Online competition.

The decision has been made as we are unable to meet the regulations of the competition, which is to create a venue hub where all competitors can come together and the competition can be overseen by two officials of Cat 2 status or above.

Many of the lifters selected have not had, and do not have, the ability to train and therefore adequately prepare for the competition. With the uncertainty around moving alert levels in the future, we wish to advise all athletes and coaches now so their focus can be on the 2021 National Championships.

Information pertaining to upcoming International events can be found on the WNZ website. If you have any questions, please contact the High Performance Director at hpd@weightlifting.nz
