- The 2022 ISF World Championships, which were originally scheduled for June 25-26, 2022 in Moscow, Russia, will be relocated to the Netherlands and Kazakhstan (online format)
This decision was not taken lightly.
We feel for the athletes of our National Federations, who deserve to have consistency and stability in their season schedule after two years of disruption due to the global pandemic.
We feel for the Russian and Belarusian athletes and the Russian Streetlifting Federation, who wanted nothing more than to host the incredible World Championship event they are capable of and contribute to the growth of the Streetlifting Community.
And most of all, we feel for the people of Ukraine as they bravely fight and defend against this unjust attack on their country.
Let there be peace and love!
