The National Weightlifting Association will organize final trials today at the National Stadium Gym. According to coach Sonny Johnson, he said this particular trial is very important because the association will be making the final selection of athletes for the World championship in Turkey, September 2010 and the Common Wealth Games in India, October this year.
Sonny Johnson further stated that the selection will be made on merit and by the international Standard that is why for the past months the weightlifters have been undergoing intensive training to make sure they match the international standard.
Sonny also appealed to all Weightlifting schools who will be taking part in the competition to make sure that they are present two hours before the commencement of the trial as each weightlifter has to go through arbitration which is a matter of must before taking part in the trial.
The reason for that is they need to know the weight of each lifter so that they will be placed into groups according to their weights.
Sonny also encourages all registered schools to participate in the trial which will be good for them so they will be able to determine the strength of their lifters.
