Weightlifting at Samoa 2019

Weightlifting was introduced in 1966 and since then has been held at every Pacific Games. Samoa will be the fifteenth Pacific Games weightlifting competition, which doubles as a Commonwealth Championship.

With the success of Samoa weightlifters on the international stage, the popularity of weightlifting in Samoa has soared and is sure to attract a strong following in July.

A total of 20 Pacific nations and territories, including both New Zealand and Australia, have indicated their participation in five days of  competition. 

Weightlifting will be held at Gymnasium 1 which is located at the Faleata Sports Complex.

Venue Information
