2016 Olympic Games (weight lifting): Algeria snatches two places to Rio

ALGIERS- The Algerian weight lifting snatched two place for 2016 Olympic Games of Rio, at the end of the African Championships of Nations (seniors, men and women) which took place in Yaoundé from 7 to 14 May, with the participation of 16 countries.

The two places, one was snatched in the men’s category and the other in the women’s.  

“We have exceeded our targets. We targeted one qualification for Rio but to our great surprise women (cadets and juniors) were able to snatch a place for Rio,” said Yahia Zaidi, the national technical director, happy with this achievement.

It is up to the technical directorate to choose the two athletes who will represent Algeria in this discipline in the Rio’s Olympic Games. “The best athletes will be retained,” said Zaidi.
