Uesaka Barbell Australia Qld Cup results

What a fantastic two days of weightlifting last weekend with the running of the Inaugural Uesaka Barbell Australia Qld Cup at Cougars Weightlifting Club, Brisbane. In the not too distance past the QWA had to think of ways to make competition opportunities for lifters by introducing competitions that included formulas, to give an element of competition across bodyweight categories. Now that the sport has grown so much we are pleased to see competition within bodyweight categories and intense battles for the medal placings. A number of gold medals weren't decided until the last lift.

A big thank you to Uesaka Barbell Australia for sponsoring the event. Thank you to host Club Cougars for all your hard work. And a big thank you to the team of Technical Officials who gave up their free time to officiate.
