The recent National development training camp, held at Sport Wales, was attended by the most talented athletes from across the Country.
Weightlifting Wales staff were assisted by the Sport Wales performance team, physiotherapy leads and Strength and Conditioning coaches, initiating a long-term athlete development programme to support athletes to maximise their future performance and reduce time lost to training through injury prevention programmes.
The weekend included, comprehensive screening and testing of all athletes, determining common themes to help shape the athlete support programme, along with plenty of training and team building.
Weightlifitng Wales and Sport Wales are looking forward to supporting this very talented National squad of athletes and aim to share the learning from the long-term athlete development programme with coaches from licensed clubs and academies.
