First Technical Delegate visit to Taipei 2017

The FISU Technical Delegates have completed their first round of technical inspection visits in Taipei, host of the 2017 Summer Universiade. Weightlifting Technical Delegate Anikó Németh-Móra inspected and approved the site of weightlifting, which is part of the Taipei2017 Universiade program. In 3 years’ time the National Chengchi University Gymnasium will serve as a true center for the weightlifting sport accommodating both the competition venue and in two large halls the training venue.

After Shenzen 2011 and Kazan 2013, weightlifting will once again be an integral part with 18 other sports of the university games’ program. The TD sees good guarantees for a successful Universiade not only due to the quality of the planned venues and infrastructure but also due to the excellent cooperation between Taipei City Government, Organising Committee, the Universities concerned, the governing body FISU, the IWF and, last but not least, the Chinese Taipei National Sports Associations. In particular Mr. Chang Chao-Kuo, IWF Honorary Vice President, now President of the Chinese Taipei Sports Federation, Mrs. Chang, President of CTWA are  fully supportive; and the entire expert weightlifting staff  is involved and all are committed to making weightlifting a success at the Universiade.
