2016 Cybex British Weightlifting & Powerlifting Championships
The Cybex British Weightlifting & Para-Powerlifting Championships returns to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 June, in what will be the final chance for Britain’s weightlifters to be selected for the Olympic Games this summer.
Returning to Coventry for the third consecutive year, the event is set to build on the huge success of the 2015 British Championships, where a record 115 athletes competed across 22 weight categories in front of a sold-out crowd.
Athletes competing include Commonwealth Games Champion Zoe Smith, World Youth and European Senior medallist Rebekah Tiler, European u23 Champion Sarah Davies and British Champion Sonny Webster; ParalympicsGB team members Ali Jawad and Natalie Blake will be competing on the Sunday as part of their preparation for this summer’s Paralympic Games.
For the first time in 2016 you can buy tickets for a single session, a day, or for the whole weekend, giving you maximum flexibility to watch the lifters you want to watch. Tickets start from just £5, with discounted rates for children, concessions and families.
