Just before ‘Aquece Rio’, weightlifting Test Event for Rio2016, the IWF Vice President and Chairman of the Technical Committee Sam Coffa had a full day lecture to approximately 10 Brazilian National Technical Officials. He covered widely Rules and responsibilities of each function (Referee, Jury, Technical Controller and Timekeeper etc.), weigh-in and incorrect movements. The seminar was interactive; participants not only raised questions but also gave hints to the IWF Technical Committee for the future modification of the TCRR.
Competitions of the Test Event will start on 7 April.
