Guyanese trio off to International Weightlifting Federation’s World Championship


A three-member Guyana contingent is off to Bogota, Colombia, to represent the nation in the International Weightlifting Federation’s World Championship from December 5-16.

Athletes Delice Adonis (64kg Class) and Shammah Noel (81kg Class) are being accompanied by Coach Sean Cozier.

This event will serve as a qualifier for the Pan American Games in 2023 and the Paris Olympic Games 2024.

“This is Guyana’s first participation at the World Championship in over 50 years. This is also a very historic championship, which is being held in the South American continent, since its introduction in 1905,” the Guyana Amateur Weightlifting Association (GAWA) said in a press release.

“The GAWA would like to thank the Guyana Olympic Association for assisting (and) making our participation at this very important event possible.”
