Asia Champion to Compete at the World Classic Powerlifting Championships 2018
- Hong Kong Powerlifting Association, Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong
- Hong Kong
The HK Powerlifting Association will not let me compete at the World IPF Classic Championships this June in Canada. This is despite the fact that:
- I won gold at the Asia Powerlifting Championships Dec 2017
- I hold all of the HK national records for my category
- All flights and accommodations would be paid by myself, as they have in the past
This government funded association has refused to nominate me to compete, due to 'limited resources.' This is despite the fact that every single athlete pays their own accommodation and flights to compete. I would have done so for the World Championships. This association would rather have me compete in other Asian competitions, and win medals. But not at the World Champs.
Dec 2017: The HKWPA told me I would have to travel on my own, and pay for myself.
Feb 2018: The HKWPA told me I would have to also pay for a HKWPA committee member to accompany me.
Mar 2018: The HKWPA told me that the 'executive committee' has decided not to send anyone this year - that I should wait to compete in the Asian Championships again and win a medal.
I need your signature to help me show how WRONG they are.
We, the undersigned, call on the Hong Kong Weightlifting and Powerlifting Association, and the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, to allow for Daniella May Lee Means, the Asia Champion, to compete at the World Classic Powerlifting Championships 2018.
