Greek Federation to co-host University World Championships

A recent inspection visit by FISU Technical Chair for Weightlifting, Mrs. Anikó Németh-Móra, in the company of representatives of the Greek Weightlifting Federation at the site of the 2008 World University Championships finalized all outstanding issues of this first-ever event held fully under the umbrella of FISU.
The final touches were added to the Technical Regulation of the WUWC 2008 of Komotini, whereas entries are already arriving at the IWF and at the Organising Committee.
Professional input from the Greek Weightlifting Federation, by a staff headed by no-one lesser than Mr. George Iliou, Competition Manager of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, will be added to the organisation of the Championships at the Democritus University of Komotini, which is to be found in the North-Eastern part of Greece.

On her way to Komotini, Mrs. Németh stopped in Athens where she was met by Mr. Stavros Douvis, General Secretary of Sport and was also received by Mr. Ioannis Ioannidis, Minister for Sport, both assuring the Federations of their full support.

Nominations for Technical Officials are still accepted by the IWF, before 5 October 2008.
