South American Championships concluded

The South American Confederation having 10 Member Federations organizes the South American Championships annually, and after the withdrawal of Venezuela, Lima, Peru took over the organization in 2015, for Youth, Junior and Senior athletes as well.

The event was held in the recently completed High Performance Center, built for the 2019 Pan American Games. The Venue, including the Hotel, training and competition site in the same complex, provided high standard facilities for a perfect competition.

“I am glad we could welcome the South American countries in Lima, Peru. This competition served also as the first weightlifting Test Event ahead of the 2019 Pan American Games. The event was organized in the complex that might also be the venue for the 2018 IWF World Championships – a major event before the Pan American Games” said Jose Quinones, President of South American Confederation, also NOC President and IWF Vice President.
