Bahrain is set to make history by hosting the World Weightlifting Championship from December 4 to 15, 2024. This landmark event is the result of a new agreement between the Bahrain Weightlifting Federation (BWF) and the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF).

The agreement was signed during a high-profile meeting between His Highness Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, First Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports, and Mohammed Jaloud, President of the IWF.

This collaboration marks a significant achievement for Bahrain, propelling it onto the global sports stage.

His Highness Shaikh Khalid emphasized the championship’s role in elevating Bahrain’s international sports reputation.

He expressed confidence in the nation’s ability to host a successful event, drawing on the experience and success of the 2022 Asian Weightlifting Championship held in Bahrain.

As Bahrain prepares for this prestigious event, it looks forward to welcoming athletes and sports enthusiasts from around the world.

This championship not only highlights Bahrain’s commitment to sports but also promises to be a spectacular showcase of athletic excellence.
