After a National Weightlifting Championship ...

- (Albanian weightlifting as a "vaccine" of hope for life) -

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, along with the rest of the globe, invaded Albania, it seemed that the normalcy of life was brought to its knees by its fatal blows. Losses of life, serious consequences on health and economy that we are going through for a year, among others, have reduced to a minimum the necessary adrenaline that keeps in the mood humor for life, the desire to live it in all its dynamics. The heavy weight to recover a little morally in this difficult psychological situation that prevails today in Albania, would be taken first by the Albanian weightlifting. The President of FSHP, Mr. Elez Gjozaj succeeded in this difficult mission, both sporting and humane. That is why, in these difficult days, the gratitude of society should be directed without sparing him… Thus, after a year without activities due to the pandemic, weightlifting,

The president of FSHP Elez Gjoza, in the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, found and planned a new formula for organizing this championship that was held in two days. On the first day competed women and boys Olympic athletes who aimed to be participants in the Olympics and winners of medals in the European Championship to be held in early April in Moscow. "… While the rest of the weightlifters will continue their competition on Sunday. This is the innovation we have introduced this year. So the races will not be as crowded as usual. "We will have more expenses, but the athletes do not deserve to work hard and compete until late hours, also for the effect of the Coronavirus, because in this way we do not gather all the weightlifters", declared Mr. Gjoza. The championship was held in strict security conditions to respect the distances due to the pandemic. The limited number of attendees in the seats of the central tribune of the sports palace "Ramazan Njala", we believe that was compensated by the present television media that covered the competitions on Saturday and Sunday. So, thanks to them, for two days in a row, everyone was given the opportunity to experience the beautiful emotions that the talented girls and boys of our weightlifting donated in their competitions, to this heavy sport that requires not only endless work to raise muscle strength, but also culture and education for tempering an honest character. All that is created only by the work and sweat shed in training. Of course, the emotions created by the presence in the hall in front of the pedestal where the barbell was, live tracking of the race is always irreplaceable. To watch live the stunning girls Kleopatra Saliaj, or especially Evangjeli Velon to easily lift weights that make us equal and contenders with the results of Europe, anyway, is another thing. Emotions are indescribable… To watch live when 15-year-old Ertjon Kofsha, the promising student of the "Great Master" of the legendary weightlifter Leon - Leonard Toska lifted without effort 145 kg (in push-up style), you are filled with hope that with work, The pinnacle of success is not far away… His dignified rival of the Tirana team Samuel Bishanaku gave meaning and special beauty to the race between them, two weightlifters of the same weight and age in this championship. The latest contribution of the successful coach Ilir Çela, 17-year-old Franco Ferra from Elbasan, who lifted 170 kg in the push-up style, raised hope and anxiety to triumph with dignity in the next world competitions. Champion Briken Calja once again shone. "Cherry on the cake" described his result The President of FPSH Mr. Elez Gjozaj what was declared National Champion and "Best Athlete" of the Championship. The well-known Briken Calja, on Saturday, February 20, 2021, in "Ramazan Njala" of Durrës set two national records: 195 kg in push and 353 kg in doubles. In this way Calja also improved the European records with 3 kg more in the push and 6 kg more in the doubles. In the end, the men's team of Tirana led by the well-known Sokol Bishanaku was ranked in first place, in the second the team of Durrës and in the third of Elbasan. While for women, Tirana and Partizani excelled. "Apart from the extraordinary situation we are going through due to the pandemic, this championship should be appreciated for the many very impressive and very promising inflows of young people, boys and especially girls", the well-known international referee would say at the end of this championship. Vehap Xhindoli. These were more or less the results of this special championship, for which Mr. Gjozaj stated: "It was really difficult. We took strict measures regarding COVID both in the warm-up room and in this competition. It had to become a swallow for all federations and this swallow turned out to be us . We also have many international activities and this forced us to make a competition to see the shape of our athletes. This event will serve the European Championship that takes place in April in Moscow. Our athletes there will have their say and will absolutely return with medals, albeit in a very difficult year. Albania deserves this ". This was a concise panorama of the National Weightlifting Championship that took place in Durrës on 20 and 21 February 2021, but the purpose of these queues was not only this.

As we said above, the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, not only made this activity unusual, but the triumph over the depressive psychosis that came from it, paved the way for new challenges before the FSHP and its president. In addition to the challenge of the expected results in international confrontations, Mr. Gjozaj must not forget that there is another difficult challenge ahead with another inherited "pandemic". When I say inherited, I also mean imported. So not at all with the only "Albanian" origin. I am talking about the battle with doping, about vigilance against this deadly "virus" for sport. I say this because, especially today, in the "world of money" it is very difficult, almost impossible, to always properly distinguish the true interpersonal reaction. The thirst for victory has often erased the word " the distribution by companies and the attitudes of different states in the world about them made it clear that solidarity and humanism find it very difficult to survive in today’s world of profit. But by no means should this happen in the sports world. Even thousands of years ago on ancient Olympus, sports competitions for this mission were born: To convey the philosophy of a life in peace and the physical and ethical education of man with honest "war" only through sport. Not only the harmonious and healthy development of the body, but also the encouragement of a peaceful, honest society with human dignity was the lesson we inherit from the first Olympic Games. Therefore, the message brought by the barbell sports competitions, where you do not physically face the rival you have on your side, but you have the match directly between your barbell and your muscles, they were exactly the right thing these days. The National Weightlifting Championship that took place on February 20 and 21 in Durrës was the only message that could be conveyed to hold up the hope of the triumph of life force to defeat evil. It was even more than that. It was the only anti-stress "vaccine" we have to fish from the pandemic. As it triumphed in Durrës, we believe that even in the challenge with the "pandemic" of doping, FSHP, will definitely pass it successfully. Sports competition is an institution that we should be thankful for at all times. Especially these days. Especially with weightlifting, this heavy sport that requires work not only to strengthen the muscles, but also to temper and strengthen the honest character among people even in these difficult days we are going through. were exactly the right thing these times.
