We Lift Off

Onsite Competition for Individuals

Event description

The We Lift- off is a weightlifting competition that takes place during the Beach Throwdown weekend that features weightlifting in a dynamic way, in light of the Beach Throwdown’s atmosphere. With three competition platforms we guarantee the spectators will be well entertained.

On the 11th and 12h of July, we will be looking to find the strongest weightlifters per weight category. The athletes will be challenged to bring the highest weight overhead in three attempts per exercise: the snatch and the clean and jerk 

The We lift- off aims to bring together sport-enthusiasts with a passion for the sport and thrives to keep the competition accessible and joyful to any level and skill.

The competition comes with an open registration, so first come first serve. The register fee is 37,50 euros (fee included), which will also grant you access to the festival for that day. 

Even though we will be supported by the best weightlifting equipment brand Eleiko, and we will try and ensure optimal conditions, we ask your understanding for the fact that the competition will be held on the beach.

There will be one division per gender: Elite 18+

NOTE:

If you're also applying for the Beach Throwdown main event, make sure to choose wisely, i.e. if competing at the BTD on Saturday, then compete if possible on the Sunday for the We Lift-off. If both are scheduled on the same day, be aware that missing your heat means no score on that workout, we can't shift heats so you can do both...
