Levuka Weightlifting Club declares it's independence from Weightlifting Fiji

*The Levuka Weightlifting Club have decided to separate completely from Weightlifting Fiji and establish a new organization. *
Club President Peni Tawai stated in an email that their club will now be known as Fiji Weightlifters Association.
“Tawai says no longer weightlifters from Levuka will they put up with bullying tactics and disrespect of the rights of the individual by Weightlifting Fiji.”
He says the reason for establishing a new association is due to the dictatorial and unreasonable approach by Weightlifting Fiji towards athletes and officials associated with the Levuka club.
The general meeting for the establishment of their association will be held in Levuka on the 10th of next month.
Tawai says the first Fiji Weightlifters Championships will be held in Levuka and it will be the first championships held in the new IWF bodyweight categories.
