Haworth and Woolfolk Head to World Championships
The 2007 World Weightlifting Championships have gotten underway in Chang Mai, Thailand, September 17-26. Both Cheryl Haworth and Natalie Woolfolk are on hand as members of the USA Women’s Team. Hawroth, a native of Savannah, GA, will compete in the 75+kg Weight Class, while Woolfolk will compete in the 63kg Weight Class.
This is the second and final 2008 Olympic Games Qualifying event. The 2007 World Championships constitutes approximately two-thirds of the Olympic qualification criteria for country team size. The 2006 World Weightlifting Championships in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic were the first portion of the Olympic Qualification formula (one-third of the formula).
