IWF announces Rogue Fitness as Second-Tier Supplier

IWF announced a new partnership with Rogue Fitness, a leading American-based barbell and sports equipment manufacturer.

Rogue Fitness has become a second-tier sports equipment supplier — a new level of partnership for the IWF. The partnership does not impact the long-term cooperation the IWF has with its five first-tier suppliers.

As a second-tier supplier, Rogue Fitness can provide weightlifting equipment for the IWF Bronze Level Qualification Events and Other Events.

William Henniger, representative of Rogue Fitness, who made his first presentation at the IWF Congress in Las Vegas said: “From the very beginning, Rogue’s goal has been to manufacture equipment that would meet the standard of the world’s finest strength athletes and organizations. Becoming an IWF certified equipment supplier is a great testament to those efforts, and we are honoured by the recognition. In the strength world, this is the equivalent of a restaurant getting its Michelin stars. This is also a tremendous motivator for the Rogue team to continue innovating and to stay on the cutting edge of the sport.”

Dr. Tamás Aján, President of IWF said: “The IWF is very happy to partner with Rogue Fitness. This new level of partnership provides additional possibilities for the organizers hosting events in the IWF event portfolio which has recently been extended by the new qualification system.”
