Elections – Brazilian Weightlifting Federation (CBLP)

The General Assembly of the Brazilian Weightlifting Federation (CBLP) re-elected, this Saturday (27th), Mr. Enrique Montero for the Presidency for the next four years and the Vice President is Mrs. Maria Clara Sampaio Fonseca Gomes.

The election took place in person, at CBLP headquarters, in Belo Horizonte (MG), and virtual, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

After the end of the meeting, Enrique Montero thanked the community for their participation in the process and made a request for everyone to be together looking for the best for the weightlifting.

“It was a democratic, transparent election, where everyone had access to full documents and notices. It was the first election with the presence of an Independent Electoral Commission and we had the presence of athletes (33%) in the electoral congress. I think that, from now we need to think that we have four years ahead of us and many challenges. The participation of the entire community will be fundamental for the growth of our sport ”, he said.
