WEIGHTLIFTING Fiji will be using last year's success as a benchmark to overcome the challenging 2014 season.
President Sharlene Nand said they had a very successful 2013.
"With the lifters' focus, determination and hard work and the administrators' tireless and unfailing support and not forgetting the paperwork being submitted as the deadlines grew closer, Weightlifting Fiji had climbed greater heights and achieved a lot in 2013," she said.
"And with the support of the media, weightlifting and Weightlifting Fiji started to become a known sport in Fiji as it gained regional and international limelight through its participation and achievement."
Nand said one of their major achievements last year was the construction of a new High Performance Centre in Levuka.
"Weightlifting Fiji looks forward to another challenging and successful year ahead."
