Weightlifting Wales is the National Governing body for the sport in Wales.
The Wales Weightlifting Federation was formed in 1927. It followed a visit by Herman Goerner, a famous German strongman, to the Market Hall, Llanelli to give a display of his prowess in weightlifting.
Welsh weightlifters first competed in the Commonwealth Games in 1954 where they won their first Commonwealth Games medals.
Weightlifting Wales has organised European, and Commonwealth Championships at Cardiff as well as the famous Silver Dragon International Tournaments and World Cup.
Weightlifting Wales is responsible for all aspects of the sport from grass roots development to elite level competition.
