Ben and Joe 09.03.13Today saw both Ben and Joe compete in the GBPF British Bench Press competition in Northumberland.  A long trip was well worth it in the end as both made personal best perfromances and both secured the title of British Champion in their respective classes. 

Ben competing in the under 74kg class received nothing but white lights from the referrees and finished with a lift of 105kg.  Joe was competing in the under 59kg class and while he was unfortunate to have his 2nd lift disallowed on a 2 to 1 decision he still successfully lifted 65kg which was a personal best. 

Both had worked hard for this competition and it showed as they both secured the British Champion title.

was the first competitive action for Robert who had to play a tactical game making large jumps in his lifts but despite the fac that he only finished with 90kg which was a little below expectation he stayed ahead of competitors and secured 1st place. Not to be outdone by a team mate Zoe managed an impressive 91kg and this was her first competitive action since the Paralympic Games in London and there was definately a few photos taken as she showed of her bronze medal to those that braved the snow to attend the event. 

These performances are new British Senior Records and so now we welcome Rob to the expanding group of record holders at Suffolk Spartans.  Both are now training hard as they prepare for the British Finals in June and will be expecting to improve upon these numbers.

Weather Disruption

With the risk of deteriorating weather conditions this evening we have decided not to run this evening.  Sorry to cause any inconvenience on this but we think it is far safer than anyone attempting to make a training session and there being any problems or accidents.  Assuming the snow isn’t here to stay we will be back to normal next week.
