Youth World Record Review

Due to the introduction of the 8th bodyweight category for Women (90 kg, +90 kg for Senior and Junior, 75 kg,+75 kg for Youth), the IWF proceeded to the review and the update of its statistical data.

To settle the first Youth World Records in 2009, the Continental Weightlifting Federations were requested to send their own Continental Youth Records as point of reference.

After checking all Youth Worls Records (considering results achieved with actual bodyweight referring to the new categories) in the IWF database from 1998, the list was now corrected.

Access it on the IWF website.
