Oceania Events shifted to Fiji
By a press release coming from Paul Coffa, General Secretary of the Oceania Weightlifting Federation the OWF informs all concerned that the Oceania and South Pacific Senior, Junior and Youth Championships in conjunction with the Olympic Youth Qualification event (Oceania Continent) has been shifted from Nauru to Fiji. The dates remain the same, May 4th to 7th, 2010.
The reason for changing the hosting country is that due to the large number of entries that Nauru received, the only flight per week that operates from Fiji to Nauru could not accommodate all the athletes and officials coming from the various islands. Therefore the OWF had no option but to relocate the event.
