Tulio Hernán Martínez Leal passed away

We are very sad to announce that the former President of the Colombian Weightlifting Federation Mr.Tulio Hernán Martínez Leal died today after battling disease for a long time.

Under his presidency, the Colombian Federation made huge progress, producing many medals at high level international competitions (including Olympic Games and World Championships) and Colombia organized the Junior World Championships in Cali, in 2008.

He was a great leader who treated his athletes and his colleagues as part of his family.

May he rest in peace.
