The Weight Lifting Foundation (WLF) is a recognised charity and partner of British Weight Lifting which is dedicated to helping young people fulfil their potential within the sport.

Through its projects the WLF provides support to weightlifting clubs and athletes to ensure young lifters are able to fulfil their potential within the sport. In recent years, this has included the provision of weightlifting facilities, equipment and clothing, as well as support for coaches and travel expenses to allow lifters to attend international competitions.

The WLF also dedicates a lot of resource to give emerging and talented weightlifters the best chance of reaching the highest level of the sport, and the Charity’s initiatives have directly contributed to young lifters earning 38 medals in recent years.

London-based lifter, Mercy Brown stands testament to the WLF’s work. At just 21-years old, she has established herself as one of the best female weightlifters in the country and a lot of her early development wouldn’t have been possible without support from the WLF. Mercy has already won consecutive British Championships, Bronze medals at the European Junior Championships and World University Games, and has broken various British records along the way.

British Weight Lifting continues to work closely with the Weight Lifting Foundation to create more opportunities for clubs and young lifters to excel within the sport.
