Age statistics of the 2013 Chinese National Games


The following is a simple table of lifters’ ages at the 2013 National Games of China, held in Liaoning. The National Games are a multi sport event and can be called a domestic Olympics. The weightlifting competition held as part of the program is considered more prestigious than a regular National Championships.

Age is calculated not by actual age, but by “IWF age” – the year of birth determines the number. For example every person who turned 20 in 2013 is considered 20 for this post.

All birth dates are taken from the official results PDF files. Each class consists of 15 or 16 competitors.

The table lists the weight class, the average age (A), the youngest (Y) and oldest (O) lifter.
