The Interclub Powerlifting Cham­pionship was held at the Char­man’s All Races Gym in Suva yesterday.

Fiji Powerlifting Federation president Eric Jioji said they want more to take up the sport.

“We wanted more students and clubs participating in this sport,” Jioji said

“This is not only for awareness and promotion. This is also a build-up to­wards the 2019 Pacific Games in Samoa.

“We want four powerlifters to repre­sent Fiji next year.

“We have clubs from the University of the South Pacific and Fiji National Uni­versity.”

Jioji added it was a good turnout with 20 males and 15 female athletes partici­pating.

The national trials will be held in No­vember.
