Report by I.A.W.A. President Al Myers:
The results for the FIRST EVER OTSM World Championship have finally been compiled. I was so impressed with the participation in this Championship, with 5 women and 19 men competing. Also, lifters from Australia (8 lifters), the USA (11 lifters), England (4 lifters), and Wales (1 lifter) were part of this Championships. That indeed makes it a World event! I sure hope this continues as an annual IAWA Championship – and for those that entered this year will always go down in history as part of the inaugural class of OTSM IAWA lifters. That’s something to be proud of!
