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. Thanks Lulama Ngwele
