NQ Open Championships wrap up!

QWA CEO Debra Keelan and myself were in Townsville last weekend supporting the NQ Open Championships with 15 strong competitors including young and old,  the youngest at 11 years old all the way through to Masters.

The community held together with local members and also those who travelled several hours to lift or indeed volunteer. The event was organised by Whitsundays Weightlifting Club owner Leanne Knox and her team consisting of lifters, coaches and even a techincal official!

Townsville Barbell Club owner and his team were out in full force and a special mention went to Rebecca Jacubovsky whom tirelessly organised officials and all  pre event paperwork.


It was great to see the support and enthusiasm from all the attendees and we look forward to future ventures from surrounding clubs.
