The organizing committee and everyone involved with the championship are overwhelmed by the number of athletes but also delighted to be able to welcome so many weightlifters to Førde. We are currently working tirelessly to ensure that accommodation, transport and dining will be at the best possible level to accommodate all the needs of the athletes.
