With the current situation with the Covid-19 virus and many more countries applying lockdown to their borders, the OWF Executive Board and the Organising Committee, has agreed that we postpone the Oceania Championship and Commonwealth Championships to later in the year. Most likely to around September or October. However we will confirm the exact date in due course.
The OWF has held on long enough to give the chance to our lifters that much needed gold and silver qualification event for Tokyo and also in fairness to the host country Nauru.
The situation is getting worse and not better at this point. Therefore we can no longer wait and the decision has been made in the interest of the health and safety of all concerned.
We have advised the IWF of this decision.
We will keep in touch throughout this unpredictable time.
In the meantime we wish you well and please stay safe.
