Please find attached the 2019 Arafura Games Weightlifting Schedule
The Arafura Games Weightlifting Championships is an individual event. The AWF will not be selecting or funding an Australian Team to the Arafura Games. All AWF members who meet the eligibility requirements and minimum qualification standards (MQS) contained within the Arafura Games Regulations can enter.
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.
