BRITISH Weight Lifting has announced Cybex International UK as the official naming rights partner of the 2016 British Weight Lifting and Para-Powerlifting Championships.
Taking place at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on June 11 and 12, the Cybex British Weight Lifting and Para-Powerlifting Championships will see the country’s best weightlifters and para-powerlifters compete for the coveted title of British champion; the event will also be the last opportunity for British athletes to earn one of two places available for the Olympic Games in Brazil this summer.
As part of the sponsorship agreement, Cybex will provide all training equipment for the warm up area of the event, including Cybex’s Big Iron lifting platforms.
British Weight Lifting athletes and coaches are also provided with full access to Cybex UK’s HQ gym in Leicestershire, which is located close to British Weight Lifting’s high performance centre at Loughborough University.
Cybex UK sales director Rob Thurston said: “Cybex has been a pioneer of strength equipment for many years and our new partnership with British Weight Lifting demonstrates our dedication to promoting the sport and its many benefits.
“We’re also excited to support the athletes in their preparation for a competition that is guaranteed to deliver big lifts and impressive performances – we’re already looking forward to it.”
