Its that time of the year again. Arnolds Classic is in town and taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre.

This year the organizers promise it to be even bigger and even better then last year!

GWA will be organizing the weightlifting competition at Arnold’s. Please read the following details below:

Arnold’s is taking place on the 18th-20th of May.

GWA is hosting a coaching workshop on the first day of Arnold’s. Friday the 18th. Please try come down and support. You might learn a thing or two.

This year we are in the main exhibition hall right at the main entrance. It is guaranteed to be a vibe. We have tons of space, and seating as well as a room right there for weigh in.

Our warm-up area will be much bigger this year. The current floor plan we have gives us about 100-110sqm of space for the warm up area alone. As a result we will have more platforms and more space between them.

Travelling athletes can use the discount code on the Arnold’s website for discounted hotel rates in the area. We recommend you book a hotel from the list that is on the Bus route as this bus will be running a loop every 20min and is free for athletes wearing their wrist band so you can get to and from the venue with ease. This combined with the Gautrain from the Airport means you don’t even need to hire a car.

GWA has partnered with SA Masters Weightlifting association to have the Masters lifting at Arnold’s. Furthermore, Arnold’s 2018 is the last qualifying opportunity for Master’s athletes to qualify for Masters World Championships later this year. For more information on qualifying refer to the Masters website.

Please Note: To be eligible to compete you must be registered with SAWF through your respective Province. Gauteng based athletes can register by clicking the registration tab on our website www.gautengweightlifting.com.

Please Note: We cannot provide a fixed time table for the event until entries close and we have final numbers until then plan for the workshop on the Friday and lifting on Saturday or Sunday depending on your weight class as per last years example.
Please Note: Competition fee for Arnold’s 2018 is R550. Included in the fee is your Three day access and your Arnold’s T-shirt. The potential to win a great medal and to compete among some of the best athletes in SA!

Please Note: We will keep the entries open until we are at capacity however, entries received after the 6th of May are not guaranteed to receive a T-shirt due to your entry being received after our t-shirt orders have been submitted. We will order additional stock to try prevent this.

As we receive more information that may be relevant we will update this page and our social media platforms.

To enter please complete the entry form and make payment on the Gauteng weightlifting Website.
