Officials from the German Weightlifting Federation Visit Yamanashi City’s Training Camps

With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics approaching, Yamanashi City invited the German Weightlifting Federation to inspect its pre-games training camp. Officials from the Federation visited the training facilities and sleeping accommodations from June 13th to 14th, 2017. The Sports Director gave the following positive review:“Compared to Tokyo, the area is much quieter and full of natural beauty. It should be a great environment for training.” Following this, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed, which states that Yamanashi City’s pre-games training camp is the Federation’s top preference.
