The Nordic Weightlifting Federation is holding its Senior Championships this weekend – 28 and 29 November 2020 – in an online format due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The event is not only special because it will be held online but because in 2020 the Nordic Weightlifting Federation is celebrating its 80th anniversary.
Competition will be held according to the rules of the Nordic Weightlifting Federation and the International Weightlifting Federation and also received IWF Development Program funding.
All teams will compete at one venue in their home country and while Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway will be represented by athletes, Sweden is only able to send Technical Officials for the event due to restriction in their country.
Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded for the first, second and third places respectively in the total after the competition via postal service and the best male and the best female athlete will receive a special award. The best male and female teams will also receive an award.
