Thank you to all of those involved in the very successful Qld Masters Championships held at the Milton Weightlifting Club 24-25th March. We had 91 entries – a new participation record for this age-group.

We saw great lifting, PB’s and new records, and a number of battles for medals over the weekend of lifting.

Results can be found at:CLICK HERE

The Best Lifter awards were also a close battle:

With Diana Loy taking out first place with 211.504, minutely ahead of Rachel Nicola with 211.380

And only just ahead of Bronwyn Hitchener on 211.366.

The men followed on in a similar but not quite so close result with Ron Fraser placing first with 333, followed by Colin Schram on 319 and in 3rd place Tim Redhead on 318.

It was also a successful weekend on the Officiating front with 5 Club Referees upgrading to State Level referee. Congratulations to: Timothy Hitchener, Kim Walker, Robert Binskin, Julie Hind and Rebecca Hopf!!

A big thank you to Milton Weightlifting Club for all their hard work and wonderful hospitality. It was a most enjoyable competition.

We are pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Australian Weightlifting Federation (AWF) we have been able to organise a Level 2 Weightlifting course to be held in Brisbane 4-5 August 2018.
