Disappointing Dubai

February 27th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Events | News | Press Releases - (Comments Off on Disappointing Dubai)

Zoe took to the stage in the 4th Fazza Powerlifting Championships in Dubai today.  Being the last chance to affect qualification for London 2012 this was an important competition for all those attending.  Zoe was unlucky not to get her first lift of 86kg which was just there to settle the nerves.  After this Zoe increased her lift to 89kg as this would push her further away from those chasing her place in London.  On the day this proved to be too much for her.

Zoe performed extremely well in Cardiff last month and this was where she staked her claim to go to 2012 and this competition was about protecting that place.  Based on the results and rankings we have seen so far Zoe has 6th place in the world and if this remains the case she will receive a personal invitation to compete the London 2012 Paralympic games from IPC Powerlifting.
