2019 Arafura Games & 2019 Oceania & Commonwealth Masters Weightlifting Championships and Pacific Rim Masters Tournament - Invitation and Regulations

Dec 21 2018

Through the years, the Australian Weightlifting Federation (AWF) has hosted Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Goodwill Games, World Championships, Commonwealth and Oceania Championships.

The Australian Weightlifting Federation (AWF) is very proud of its ability to provide excellent levels of participation and competition whilst maintaining the essence of sportsmanship and ensuring an equal field of play.

Thanks to the support of the Oceania and Commonwealth Weightlifting Federation’s, and the Arafura Games Organising Committee, the AWF in 2019 has the honor of presenting two prestigious international weightlifting events, the 2019 Arafura Games in Darwin during the period 26 – 29 April, and the Oceania & Commonwealth Masters Championships, incorporating the Pacific Rim Masters Tournament, on the Gold Coast, Queensland between 13-16 June.

I take this opportunity to cordially invite your athletes, technical officials and team support personnel to participate in these events. I have attached information providing important details about each of these competitions.

I very much look forward to welcoming your delegation to Australia whether it be in Darwin for the Arafura Games or Gold Coast for the Masters event, or perhaps both events which will attract athletes from many parts of the world who will strive to compete to the best of their ability at these exciting events.

Wishing you and your members a peaceful festive season and I hope to see you in Australia in 2019.

Yours in Weightlifting
