Technical visit in Las Vegas


A 2-day IWF technical visit was paid to Las Vegas by Mátyás Lencsér (IWF Competition Manager) and Angelique Mottet (IWF Operations Manager). The USA Weightlifting, under the supervision of Phil Andrews (CEO) and accompanied by Pedro Meloni, Competition Manager and Eduardo Villanova, Technical Operations Manager, welcomed the IWF delegation in the city of lights.

The group inspected and approved the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, where the competition (along with the training) will take place as well as accommodation, all under one roof.

The hotel will also serve as the location of the Congress prior to the 2019 IWF Youth World Championships, held 7 March. The eight-day event will kick off on the 8th and conclude on the 15th of March.

In view of the vast experience of US WL in hosting major weightlifting events and having seen the thorough and professional preparations, the IWF delegation is certain that a fantastic event is ahead of us.
