Merry Christmas OWNZ Members, 

We can't believe how fast the year has gone. Thank you to our members for supporting our initiatives throughout 2016, without your passion and love for weightlifting we would not be in the great position we are in now. 

In our final Newsletter for the year, it contains all of the information you need to prepare for the 2017 competition year. If you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Stay safe over the summer holidays!
