Medal Haul for Zoe

November 24th, 2015 | Posted by admin in Events | Future Competitions | News | Press Releases | Uncategorized

Well what a day Zoe had out in Hungary having failed her opening lift of 90kg she really put the pressure on herself to come out and do well second time around which she managed well.  A third attempt of 95kg proved just too much on the day but with those around her failing to secure their final lifts this was sufficient to see Zoe add to her medal collection as she secured a silver in the European section of the competition and a bronze in the Open (World) section.

She can now add this to the Gold she won in the World Championships in 2010 and the Bronze at London 2012 Paralympic Games.  This performance now places her 7th in the World Rankings ahead of Rio 2016 and was a confident return to the International arena after the classification issues that have taken place over the last 18 months.

Nathaniel from Spartans will be lifting on 25th and we are hoping for another good performance from him as these two Spartans make up a third of the GB squad that travelled to Hungary this week.
