Oly in the Outback



G'day to ALL QWA CLUBS and Members,

Entries are now open, so be sure to enter NOW by logging in via your QWA account. Oly in the Outback, hosted by Saints Weightlifting Club and the QWA, will be held in conjunction with the Uesaka Barbell Australia Club Challenge and League Round 2, in the Walsh Pavilion, Miles Showgrounds. All lifters results will still contribute to their own Club’s Club Challenge results. We are just taking the pressure off club’s having to hold their own competitions, so plan your trip to Miles now. Miles is approx. 2.5hrs drive west of Toowoomba. Car pool or hire a minibus.

  • All athletes and tech officials will receive a collectors Comp t-shirt (Thanks to sponsor Palmer’s Coaches);
  • A commemorative medallion for every athlete
  • Great prize money is up for grabs (Thanks to sponsors including Qld Hotel, Miles).
  • SPECIAL GUEST is Saints Founder and 5 times Commonwealth Games athlete and dual Olympian Deb Acason.
  • An Oly for Kids demonstration will also be held, to highlight how our great sport can be introduced for kids at a young age.

(Note: Tshirt orders will need to be finalised very soon, so if you enter now we can collect your correct size for the order)

A BBQ and canteen will be running all Comp day, and Miles has plenty of pubs, motels and accommodation and things to see and do. Great country hospitality.

Please see our facebook event for heaps of information on accommodation options and attractions in Miles.

We’ve had a heap of interest, so be sure to get those entries in now and we look forward to a fantastic comp. Any queries please contact the QWA or Sonia Stenhouse (Saints Weightlifting Club) on 0428746414. We would love to have you join us 😊
