President of Georgia at Opening Ceremony of the European Weightlifting Championship

President Zourabichvili participated at the opening ceremony of the European Weightlifting Championship.
The President of Georgia welcomed the Georgian Team of Weightlifting at the Sports Palace of Batumi, emphasizing the pleasure for Georgia to host the European Weightlifting Championship “Batumi 2019”.
As President Salome Zourabichvili stated, it is a clear demonstration that Georgia has gained confidence in the international sports community, not only in weightlifting, but also in other sports. 
“It is a great day for Georgia. Gaining the trust of the entire sports world is a true achievement of our successful sportsmen, and I would like to congratulate them on launching this competition, and wish success to all participants of the championship.”
The President also mentioned Tatia Lortkipanidze, a female weightlifting champion, and the issues linked to her case.
“As a women president, I cannot but deplore that one of our distinguished women champion, Tatia Lortkipanidze, could not participate this year. The reasons are not very clear, and I hope they are not linked to women discrimination,” said President Zourabichvili.
