You can still compete during the COVID-19 restrictions!
The VWA is pleased to support and promote the AWF's online competition iSO LIFT.
iSO LIFT provides the opportunity for AWF members to compete in a national tournament from home, provided they have the correct equipment - participants simply record their weigh-in and lifts, then register and upload the videos at the iSO LIFT page on the AWF website. It allows athletes a break from the monotony of home training and isolation and a touch of competition to fuel training while we wait for lockdowns associated with COVID-19 to be removed.
The online competition is open to both males and females in all current age categories. The competition ranking will be based on the Sinclair Formula. The Meltzer-Faber age formula will also be applied in the Masters age group.
Competition date: 1st May – 31st May 2020
Entry fee: $10 per participant.
