Update on the IWF Youth World Championships 2020

After thorough consideration and by prioritizing the health and safety of our young lifters, it is with great sadness we announce the cancellation of the IWF Youth World Championships in its original form, due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, to provide a competition opportunity to the youth weightlifters, an online event called IWF Youth World Cup will be organized by the International Weightlifting Federation.

Further information and details on the regulation and date of the event will be communicated soon.
