Wrap-up of the 2017 All Schools Weightlifting Championships

What a fantastic event!! 110 lifters from schools as far north as Proserpine, south as Gold Coast and west as Miles.

A BIG thank you to the Gold Coast Weightlifting Club for hosting the event so professionally. And a BIG thank you to Ian Moir for his efforts - yet again - in ensuring that the set-up of the electronic/referee side of things went smoothly. Thank you to all the hardworking Tecnical Officials, volunteers and supportive crowds of family and friends. The smiles of the kids coming off the platform after their lifts was really all we needed to know we did a great job!smiley Thank you to all the coaches who invested so much of their time in the lifters of our future, throughout 2017.

With 202 PB lifts recorded no wonder there were so many smiles! Congratulations also to our State and National Record breakers!
