5. I agree to indemnify WACT and its affiliates and any and all its officers, employees, agents, coaches or managers against all liability for damages arising out of or in connection with any injury suffered by me however caused while I am competing, training for, taking part in, or travelling to, or from, any weightlifting competition or tournament.
