An IWF Technical Officials Education Seminar was organised by the Uganda Weightlifting Federation under the auspices of the International Weightlifting Federation Development Programme in November at the National Olympic Committee in Kampala.

The federation welcomed participants from within the country, including coaches (both individuals and clubs), technical officials, administrators, managers and athletes.

Mr Milan Mihajlovic, IWF Technical Committee Member was the facilitator of the seminar, who worked hand in hand with Mr Ssenkungu Salim Musoke, Uganda Weightlifting Federation President, ITO Chairman CRC WFA.

Mr Mihajlovic introduced the new Technical Rules and Regulations, the Code of Conduct and more to the audience with the help of educational and demonstration videos.

Some participants took their ITO exams before the group travelled to Busia, to the OLYMPAFRICA centre, where the practical session of the course was undertaken in conjunction with the 40th National Championship and 3rd Champion of Champions. While in Busia, the experts also examined young weightlifting talents training.
