IMPORTANT MESSAGE - 8th August 2021
The IWF and European Masters Committees are holding talks to issue a statement to cope with eventualities caused by
the ongoing pandemic.
When this done it will be published on the European Masters website - www.europeanmasterswl.com and on the IWF
Masters Competitions Page as well by email to all National Masters Chairs.
Both committees understand, and are concerned about the many problems facing Masters weightlifting and hope to
provide answers as early as possible.
In addition we are working towards keeping Masters interested enough to maintain their standards in training and
competing, if it is not possible for some athletes to travel and compete in a live event then every effort will be
made to provide the alternative online virtual event.
Meanwhile thank you for your patience.

Our Vision And Mission
We aim to provide quick and easy online registration for all
Your information enables us to provide you with a well organised
and professional event.
Innovation Leader for Championships
Masters weightlifting has undergone huge changes since the first ever World Masters event
just over 30 years ago. Championships are now run in a very professional way and it is
now time to put paper entry forms into the past and replace it with technology. The 2016
World Masters Championship in Heinsheim, Germany, surprised everyone with a total entry
that almost reached 1000 Masters. Dealing with this many entry forms is an unenviable
task which will now be replaced by this innovative Registration System.
Clear direction and guidance for entries
Guidelines will follow which will hopefully enable you to complete your registration
quickly and easily. Almost all the entry fields are mandatory and this includes the
medical details also. There is a facility to bypass the medical details for those who
have no medical history or seek privacy but you are asked to give consideration to this
section because it is entirely for your benefit should you have a health problem whilst
attending a championship.
Quality Service & Support
The new online registration system is aimed at giving a better service to those Masters
who wish to compete. No more downloading, printing, and completing a paper form, and no
more mailings and in particular mail that goes astray. All details will be erased from
the website after the championship doping control results have all been processed.
Medical details will only be used for statistical analysis.
Strength does not come from winning.
Your struggles develop your strengths.
When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is
"What do I need" and "How do I
Simple. Follow the steps listed below.
Ensure you have all required information to hand
Most of the information you are asked for is straightforward, e.g., name, address,
date of birth, body weight category, qualifying total (shown on this website) and
almost all the data fields are mandatory.
The reason for this is fairly obvious because it enables the system to produce an
instantaneous Start List in any format required. Addresses are only used when it is
necessary due to an “adverse analytical finding” resulting from a drug test.
Medical details are necessary if a competitor has a medical history and takes ill
during the competition in which case the best medical treatment can more easily be
STEP 1 : Method of Registration
Entries for each athlete can either be completed individually or by a National
STEP 2 : Method - Individual
- If the method selected is for
details to be completed individually each individual must have the
permission of the National Federation or National Masters Chairperson,
and will be issued with an Access Code to enable you to register. You
not reveal that Access Code to another person and you must only submit
- At any time during the period
open for registration the National Chairperson can request a summary of
all entries from the IWF Masters Secretariat.
- At the close of registration the
IWF Masters Secretariat will send a list of national entries and a Start
List of all entries to each National Masters Chairperson.
- If the National Masters
Chairperson considers that an athlete from his or her nation should not
have registered for an event a request can be made to the IWF Masters
Secretariat to remove the registration details..
STEP 3 : Method - By National Masters Chairperson
- A National Masters Chairperson
may consider to enter all individuals’ details to maintain control over
entries or for other reasons. This is not a problem
- If errors are made after an
entry has been submitted it can only be corrected by contacting the IWF
- It is not necessary to complete
all entries during one session of registration, it can be done in
several sessions at any time before the closing date for entries.
STEP 4 : Payment
- payments must be made to your
National Masters Chairperson who will then pay all the entry fees in
total into the European Masters bank account
STEP 5 : Following Entry
- Do not contact the Masters
Secretariat to check if your registration has been accepted, you will
receive a confirmation email.
- If you are worried you may have
entered an incorrect detail please wait until the official Start List is
produced (after the closing date for entries) and then contact your
National Masters Chairperson requesting your change. This will be
forwarded by him/her to the European Masters Secretariat.
- All nations will receive an
official championship Start List, please check that all entry details
- A championship Competition
Schedule will be produced soon after the production of the Start List.
FINISH - Additional information
- Entries will be accepted at any
time up until the closing date given by your National Masters
Chairperson after which time it will not be possible
to access this registration system.
- Once you have registered you
will not be able to re-enter the system to make a change to your
details, this can only be done by the Masters Secretariat. Changes
can be made after the closing date.
- Please read the Q&A section if
you think you may have a problem, you may find the answer there.
Have you still got questions...?
No Problem. Take a look at our the FAQ's

Just wanted to say thanks for a great tournament and for letting me video some of it. The
organisation and location was just, well, exemplary is the word I think! Superb. The Welsh really
have a top class venue there.
