Join us for the pinnacle event on the New Zealand Olympic weightlifting calendar. The 2020 New Zealand Junior and Senior National Championships is the annual peak for our top lifters, and a key event for those seeking to represent New Zealand internationally in 2021. The 2020 National Championships, New Zealand’s 81st, will raise the bar once again. This year brings the event to a new venue in Mount Maunganui.

The event will take place as 9 or more (entry number dependent) sessions of ascending weight classes, alternating between women and men from Friday November 13th to Sunday November 15th. In order to compete in this event junior athletes must have obtained ‘D’ grade in a sanctioned event (including the 2020 OWNZ North or South Island Postal) between and including the 2019 Junior and Senior Championships and Sunday 18 October 2020. Senior athletes must have obtained ‘C’ grade within the same period. Junior athletes who have obtained ‘C’ grade may compete both as a junior and senior. Youth athletes who have met the junior criteria are eligible to enter.


All athletes must hold a current OWNZ competitor membership- and agree to comply with all policies.
