Dear Friends, The corona is spreading a bit more. So far it is affecting us more than we initally thought. Restrictions and provisions to fight the corona are deepening. But let´s take it positively. Every day cuts off the remaining time until the situation cools down again and with that the ability to train and to do meetings again. Returning to normal will probably be a bit longer and a little more painful. Even in view of the announced subsequent financial crisis. Well, we deal with this . So it seems we are going to climb a big mountain again. But we did it before so we can do it again. The team of lifters, such as GPC, has proven several times that they can handle it. So dear friends, fans and lifters (and whatever federation you are we are all in the same position now), take care, don´t give up and keep positive minds and mood. We are looking forward to meet all of you.
The GPC Board together with the organisers of the European Championships will continue to monitor the situation in relation to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The current intention is that the European Championships will hopefully go ahead in Slovakia at the end of May with the organisers continuing to make arrangements for it. However, nobody knows how the situation with the virus will develop in the interim or what recommendations countries will make to contain it. In view of this we cannot be certain of the viability of the event and we plan to review the situation in 3 weeks.
The GPC Board
