The entry form is now available for the 2011 IAWA World Championships held on November 19th & 20th in Perth, Australia hosted by the ARWLWA. The Worlds have not been held in Australia since 2003, so it is about time we get the opportunity to compete in the “land down under” in our most prestigious meet offered by the IAWA. I know I’m looking forward to it! Let’s show our support from the USAWA by several USAWA lifters attending. This time of the year is a beautiful time in Australia, and making a trip like this could easily be combined with a vacation. The promoters have made it easy on us – all you have to do is send in your entry “to commit” and then pay upon arrivial. The selection of lifts look like a perfect list – all areas of All-Round Weightlifting will be contested. Entries must be sent in by October 3rd to secure a spot in this World Championships.
