IWF Looking Into New Formats, Competitions, And Disciplines For The Future
The most exciting part of this new commission is that it will also look at possible ways to "innovate" the sport by checking out opportunities for new events, disciplines, and formats for competition.
The current disciplines in weightlifting are the snatch and clean and jerk, but up until 1972 the third discipline was clean and press.
It's not clear what new disciplines, formats, or events the Commission will be researching, but with the IOC breathing down the IWF's neck, the IWF needs to be considering every possible option to keep the sport growing.
