Teams are selected on the basis that they can help British Weight Lifting deliver against its key aims for 2012 and beyond. Teams for European and World Championships will be selected using a published selection policy which is based on delivering these aims.
For other international events the World Class Programme may select a team of athletes, please note that this will NOT be a Great Britain representative team as there will be no set selection standards and is not open to athletes who are not on the WC programme. Participation in these events will be dependent on a number of factors including the stage of development of athlete, their current progress and their international experience.
The teams the represent the Home Countries at Commonwealth Games and other specific International events are selected by the individual Home Countries NGBs.
