Queenslanders Shine in Eleiko International Club Tournament

Seven Queensland weightlifters won medals in this year's Eleiko Email International Club Tournament and the Cougars Weightlifting Club (Qld) topped the points table for Men and Women.

Sponsored by Eleiko, the annual email tournament is organised by the Oceania Weightlifting Federation. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded in each bodyweight category and the top three clubs in the Men's and Women's Team competition each receive prizes of Eleiko weightlifting equipment.

The QWA coordinates the lodgement of entries for the state's clubs each year and Queenslanders have done very well in the 2018 edition.

Queensland Medallists were: Lynton Hargrave (56kg 2nd); Brandon Wakeling (77kg 2nd); Matthew Lydement (105kg 1st); Chelsea Nicoll (48kg 1st); Erika Yamasaki (63kg 1st); Jacinta Carroll (63kg 3rd) and Ebony Gorincu (75kg 2nd).

Thanks go to the Oceania Weightlifting Federation for making this competition possible; and of course many thanks to Eleiko for sponsoring the program and providing great prizes.

The individual medals and club prizes will be forwarded to the winners in due course.
