Today at Stockport we had three members of the club compete in the Autumn Open with great success. With the World Championships being rescheduled for just 8 weeks away in Mexico Nathaniel and Zoe decided to remain at home and prepare fully for this instead.
First on stage was a very nervous Polly who held her nerve to secure all three lifts of 52kg, 57kg and 60kg and managed a bronze medal across all the heavyweight women which was phenomenal for her first BWL competition and nine white lights showed she has more to give.
Adam followed in the light weight mens class and also secured a bronze medal although was very close to securing that silver. He performed well with lifts of 140kg, 145kg and 148kg and this was a 4kg increase on his personal best set in July.
Final lifter for the club was Rob who started well with 110kg and 115kg but on attempting his final lift of 120kg found it was just too much for today.
We are so proud of all the members of the club and all gave a professional and polished performance.
