Guam – After over 10 years, the Guam Weightlifting Federation (GWF), in conjunction with the Guam National Olympic Committee (GNOC), is being reestablished to develop, promote and provide education for the sport of weightlifting.   The GWF mission is: to enable our athletes to achieve and sustain a competitive excellence in Olympic-style competition and to promote and grow the sport of weightlifting in Guam.  The previous pioneers in the sport of weightlifting on Guam have paved the way for us today and have represented Guam very proudly.  We hope to provide the same caliber of competitiveness, athletic excellence, and display of the Hafa Adai sprit to new athletes.
