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.
