The entry deadline is approaching FAST for this years Gold Cup on November 6th. Meet Director Frank Ciavattone was very generous in setting the deadline as late as possible, with the closing date being October 23rd. That is only TWO WEEKS prior to the meet, and should give everyone enough time to get their entry in on time.
The Gold Cup is an IAWA sanctioned event, and rotates between the countries affiliated with the International All-Round Weightlifting Association. It is quite an honor and opportunity to compete in it when it is held in the States. It may be several more years before it is again. Lets take this opportunity and show the Gold Cup the support it deserves and in doing so, demonstrate the strength of the USAWA.
Entry forms are available under “IAWA Gold Cup” in the USAWA Future Event listing on the right column of the website.
