Feb 07 2021

The Oceania Weightlifting Federation today advised that the OWF Executive Board has decided to postpone the Annual Congress and 2021 Oceania Championships to August 24th to 28th, to be held in Nauru.

OWF President Hon. Marcus Stephen and General Secretary Paul Coffa MBE stated that this unanimous decision was made because no countries within the region are able to travel in the foreseeable future due to border lockdowns because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Annual Congress Meeting will be held on August 25th.

The verification of entries for the championships will be on August 24th and the competition will be conducted on the 26th, 27th and 28th. Preliminary entries are due by 15th May and the final entries by 15th July.

The 2021 Oceania Championships will be a qualification event for the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
