2020 Qld Junior & U23 State Championships Wrap up

What a fantastic display of talent from our up and coming Junior and U23 lifters at the 2020 Q Junior and U23 Championships held in Toowoomba over the weekend of the 7-8th March.

Once again thank you to those very generous TO’s and Volunteers for giving up their weekend to help run the event, and in particular those that weren’t competing in the event.
