Della Shaw-Elder will officiate at the 2019 IWF Senior World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand. The championships starts today and ends on September 27.

Della represented Fiji at the IWF Congress yesterday where the report of successful hosting of the 2019 IWF Junior World Championships in Suva will be tabled.

Della has established her credibility, as a referee at the world level, having now officiated at both Junior and Senior World Championships. Della also officiated at the 2018 Senior World Championships in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. She also officiated at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Della was also a part of the jury at the 2017 Commonwealth Championships and the 2019 IWF JWC in Suva. Being on the panel of juries is the highest honour for a technical official in the sport of weightlifting.

Della is also the only female IWF Category One Referee in the Pacific. She achieved this status in 2014.

Della said “I’m grateful to IWF for giving me the opportunity and also to WF for my nomination. Hopefully this is a step closer to officiating at the 2020 Olympics.”

Della is thankful to IWF, Fiji National Sports Commission, FASANOC and WF for giving her the opportunity to officiate and referee at this international level.
