IWF Online Youth World Cup

The IWF Online Youth World Cup organized by the Peruvian Weightlifting Federation will kick off in exactly one week from today.

As we are nearing the start of the competition, the official Start Book has been uploaded to the IWF website including starting times and time zones which could be useful for both participants and spectators. According to the latest version of the Start Book, 62 countries with altogether 402 athletes will compete at the first ever youth weightlifting world online event between 11th and 18th November 2020.

The number of athletes and countries participating at the event shows that this competition is holding huge importance for youth weightlifters during these difficult times especially as the IWF Youth World Championships have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
