Every year, the Gauteng Weightlifting Association has the honour of selecting the team that represents the province of Gauteng at the South African National Championships.
This year’s Nationals will be hosted by the SAWF in Cape Town at the Sarepta Sports & Recreation Centre, Kuils River on the 30th of November.
Leading up to this year’s Nationals, the results from the Arnold Classic Africa Weightlifting and Gauteng Weightlifting Championships will be taken into consideration, amongst other competitions, for selection of the GWA Team. The team will then be announced at the Gauteng Weightlifting Cocktail and Awards Ceremony on the 21st of September.
We want to put forth our strongest team yet for representation, and so far, it looks like it will be a tough choice seeing as so many of our Gauteng Weightlifters have drastically improved and are becoming real contenders!
We look forward to the next few months of preparation for an event we are sure our athletes will pull out ALL the stops for!
