Weight Classes
On July 5th, 2018, the IWF announced the new official weight categories for our sport of Olympic Weightlifting. As previously mentioned, those who registered for The Praelium before this date were automatically moved to the nearest category upward from the one they registered. If this is acceptable to those athletes there is no action required. If there is a different weight class desired athletes or coaches may contact us via email to make that change, as they would any other change for competitions. Please contact us here: info@olyconcepts.com

Below is tentative as of the above IWF announcement July 5th, 2018. Time frames are subject to change but the day listed for each category will remain the same. The final schedule will be announced at the closing of registration, August 11th.

Age divisions may be mixed within sessions but will be recognized separately for podium purposes.
