Open weightlifting championship supported by Belarusian Weightlifting Union started in Chausy
More than 100 children from 13 to 17 years from all regions of the country take part in the two-day championship. Young sportsmen traditionally do two exercises: a jerk and a push. Winners are determined by the largest number of raised kilograms in the sum.
On the opening day, the first competitions in weight classes for young men - 45-50 kg, for girls - 48-53 kg were held.
The competition is a great opportunity to make a step towards new sports achievements, and also to define a prospective reserve for the national team of the Republic of Belarus.
