2021 Commonwealth Championships Host Nation is announced

The Commonwealth Games Federation have announced that the 2021 Commonwealth Championships will be hosted in Singapore, although a date has not yet been confirmed, the event shall fall in October of this year.

The Commonwealth Championships, along with the British Championships 2021, are key qualification events for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Head Coach Ray Williams says:

"All at Weightlifting Wales congratulate Singapore Weightlifting Federation for being awarded the 2021 Commonwealth Weightlifting Championships. That being said, it is disappointing from a Home Nation perspective that England Weightlifting Federation was not awarded the Championships.

We intend to send a select number of athletes to this event.

My message to all those Welsh athletes who intend to make the Birmingham 2022 Games is a simple one: train sensibly, set realistic goals and most of all, enjoy the process!”
