The AWF Electoral Congress was carried out in March 2011 in Tashkent. After this successful event Uzbekistan is again to host a significant meet.

It’s remarkable that two years ago, the Uzbeks were the host of the Asian Inter-Club Championships that did very well in handling the competitions. These championships are held after the World Senior Championships and provide a field of an evaluation of the weightlifters or the countries that couldn’t participate in the Worlds or might not do well in that event.

11 countries and approximately 123 athletes are expected to participate at Asian Cup & Interclubs Weightlifting Championships (AFG, IRI, KOR, THA, KGZ, PAK, PLE, QAT, TJK, TKM, and UZB).
