Tirana, 20 April 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency
The objective to qualify an Albanian weightlifting team to the Rio Olympics has not been achieved. This is the conclusion of the participation of the Albanian weightlifters in the European Championship being hosted in Norway. None of the Albanian weight lifters managed to meet the objective.
After this European Championship, Albanian Weightlifting Association will once again revise the current coaches, sportsmen and the future of the team may be trusted to a foreign coach. So far the only Albanian weightlifter qualified in the Rio Olympics is Briken Calja, who managed to qualify in the Huston world championship where he came sixth. /balkaneu.com/
