For the first time ever we are in a position to publish the Records and Ranking list for all age brackets and weight categories.

All records and rankings are from January 1st, 2019 and the new IWF body-weight classifications. A minimum standard has been set by the WI Board for Senior, Junior, Youth & U23s based on averages of old records in similar weight categories and a Sinclair calculation across the weight category.

Ranking List


Competition results from Weightlifting Ireland, EWF and/or IWF competitions will be recongised for records and rankings purposes.

If an athlete wishes to compete internationally and would like their result to be taken into consideration for records or ranking purposes one must contact – [email protected] before attending that said competition. The W.I. Board will then have the final say taking into consideration the level of the competition, referee standards etc.

Both Records & Ranking List will be updated after each competition and/or on a monthly bases. They can be found under the “Competitions” tab on the main page. We’d like to thank Billy Caball and Colm Brown for their fantastic work so we can finally share this information with the members.
