Weightlifting

National governing body (NGB)

British Weight Lifting

British Weight Lifting nominates the top 12 age-group athletes who are continually achieving the necessary BWL Development performance standards for their weight category and have a realistic prospect of competing internationally at the senior level.

The nomination process

SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn. You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
