Australian U15/Youth Weightlifting Championships, Perth.

Australian U15/Youth Weightlifting Championships, Perth.

The future of weightlifting in Qld looks very bright indeed, with a very excited team of 40 Queensland U15 and Youth athletes travelling to Perth last weekend to compete in the AWF U15/Youth Weightlifting Championships 7-8th July 2018.  Guildford Grammar School was a fantastic venue, and we thank Western Australian Weightlifting for hosting this event.  

 

Assisted by Team Coaches Sonia Stenhouse, Callum Hannay, Tandia Wood and Jax Solofa, and Team Manager Josh Stenhouse, our Qld Team shone throughout the competition, and as usual, our trademark Maroon colours were out in force on the podium and throughout the crowd. Our Team came away with so many excellent performances, PBs and medals (outlined below). Coaching Staff were incredibly proud of the way each athlete performed and conducted themselves throughout the competition.

It was a weekend of special moments. Congratulations to those who competed in their first Nationals, we hope you enjoyed every minute of the experience and that it has now spurred you on towards new goals! Spectators witnessed some amazing battles, both for medals placings, and from some of our more experienced athletes vying for representative places at International events. Awesome to watch.

 

Queensland took home 3 out of 4 Team Shields! Congratulations to all on this incredible result!!

Thanks to the families, friends and personal coaches of all our lifters who travelled, cheered for and supported the Queensland team in the lead-up and during the weekend of competition. Queensland brings a great vibe to these events, and this was very evident in Perth. What a bright future we have in Weightlifting in Qld 😊

 

Keep up the great work Queensland kids - You Rock!

 

Thankyou’s from the QWA Office!!!!

 

A BIG thank you to those of you that were able to make a donation towards the team’s expenses. Your generosity allowed for lifters who weren’t able to afford a full Queensland kit to be able to add a Queensland jacket to their wardrobe – something they will treasure for years to come. It also assisted with athletes expenses for travel between the airport and the competition venue. Thank you!!

 

As a result of receiving a grant from the Embracing 2018 Legacy funding the QWA was able to send Technical Officials to the event giving them valuable experience, assisting with their progress along the upgrade pathway.

And finally a big thankyou to the Qld team officials for all the work you put into the success of this competition – it really was appreciated given that it was a particularly busy time of the Weightlifting year. Thank you to Miles Wydall on his great work as mentor of the group. Miles advises us that this is the first time in 20years we have had a new crew manage our U15/Youth State team at the Nationals. This shows what development we have achieved and bodes very well for the future of Weightlifting in Queensland.

A special thank you to Sonia Stenhouse for all her administrative assistance with the event. Couldn’t have done it without you Sonia!

Great to see that there was the opportunity to educate someone new to the Queensland Team Manager role - Josh Stenhouse did a fantastic job. According to my extensive research (aka Facebook) Josh has been voted the most popular Queensland Manager of all time! Looking forward to him putting his hand up for more of these roles in the future.

Uesaka Barbell Australia QLD Club Challenge and League Round 2

After successful Regional development activities in Rockhampton for the Central Queensland Championships in May, Proserpine for the NQ Open in conjunction with the NQ Games in June, we had Miles in Western Queensland host the Inaugural Oly in the Outback Competition in conjunction with the Uesaka Barbell Australia QLD Club Challenge and League Round 2.

As a result of receiving a grant from the Embracing 2018 Legacy funding the QWA was able to send Technical Officials to all of these events, helping upskill local technical officials for the future. Along with Coach Education sessions.

The Uesaka Barbell Australia QLD Club Challenge and League Round 2 competitions conducted over the week of the 20-25th June all across Queensland saw 190 QWA members hit the competition platform. What a fabulous achievement! Thank you to all of the Clubs, coaches and volunteers who made this happen.

A big thank you to Bowen Stuart and the AWF for their assistance with the management of these results.
