Della Shaw-Elder has just returned from Halmstad, Sweden after completing the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) Female Train-the-Trainer Course.

IWF organised the first edition of Train the Trainers course in 2015 and now their focus is to pro­mote more women as IWF course instructors.

Della joined 11 other internation­al women coaches in attending the IWF Club Coach Course Level One and National Coach Course Level Two.

OPPORTUNITY

“I’ve been involved at the club and national level as a coach and I’m happy to have this oppor­tunity to become an International coach,” said Shaw-Elder.

“This now creates an opportu­nity for coaches in Fiji and the Pacific to be accredited as club coaches or national Coaches in weightlifting.”

Della is currently the only female category one referee in the Pacific region and has also been working as a coach, over the past 15 years.

INSTRUMENTAL

She has been instrumental in growing the sport of weightlift­ing around the country in 2018, Weightlifitng Fiji says.

This qualification will help her not only locally but within the re­gion as well.

The workshop was conducted by Lyn Jones and Kyle Pierce, IWF’s Coaching and Research Commit­tee Members and authors of the IWF Club Coach Manual.
