Yes, it’s still six years away, but preparations are well and truly underway in the Japanese capital for what promises to be a thrilling Olympics.

IWF President Dr. Tamas Ajan and Director General Attila Adamfi visited recently the host city of the 2020 Olympic Games. Meetings and discussions focused on the weightlifting venue and as a conclusion the Tokyo International Forum has been identified as the venue for the Olympic competitions, located in the very heart of the city.

Necessary venue reconstructions have been coordinated with TOCOG and confirmed by Mr. Yoichi Masauzoe, Govenor of Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
