In the past few years Thuringian weight-lifters have always placed among the top three state weightlifting teams at the German national junior championships. With German championship titles and records the Suhl weightlifters significantly contributed to this team effort. They belong to the strongest German youth teams.
Therefore, with the new training and competitive facility in the sport complex of Suhl-Friedberg Schießsportzentrum (SSZ), the Thuringian Athletic Association can continue its development of high performance athletics, especially young weightlifters, under optimal conditions.
These include, among others, the large competition and training hall, the sports medicine and physiotherapy department, as well as the most modern technical equipment for scientific training analysis and oversight.
A boarding school offering ongoing vocational education and the supervision of experienced coaches and teachers is provided for the Thuringian weightlifting talents. In addition, the state sports center at SSZ offers nation-wide training of coaches and the organisation of competitions.
