About the IAWA

The International All Round Weightlifting Association (IAWA) is the organization that the USAWA is affiliated with internationally. The IAWA was formed in 1987, the same year as the USAWA. Two other countries have organized all round weightlifting associations that are represented in IAWA – the IAWA-UK and the ARWLWA. However, lifters from any country may participate in IAWA events internationally regardless of whether the country has an affiliated All Round Weightlifting organization. The IAWA is open to ANYONE Worldwide to compete in.  Throughout the years IAWA has had over 25 countries represented at IAWA events!  IAWA promotes three main competitions per year.  These competitions are the World Championships, the Gold Cup, and the World Postal Championships.  The IAWA is governed by an elected board of officers that represent members worldwide.  Elections are for 4 year terms.  The IAWA has a Technical Committee that oversees technical issues within the organization, such as new lift evaluations.  Every year in conjunction with the IAWA World Championships an Annual General Meeting is held. At this meeting the major decisions are made for the upcoming year in IAWA, such as deciding on future meet sites and promoters for the IAWA major competitions.
