i feel like weightlifting is doing a lot for SA but it does not get enough exposure like any other sporting codes like ruby, cricket, soccer etc. i feel like we are left out and our lifters are struggling to make a living because there is no money for us. this is very sad travelling around the world winning medals and not get even one sponsorship that is very sad.
