Nail bitting lifting for Zoe

For anyone up early this morning you may well have caught Zoe lifting in the Malaysian World Cup competition which is the last qualification competitiZoe at Malaysia World Cup Feb 16on before selection is made for Rio 2016.  After an incredibly easy looking lift of 91kg to settle the nerves Zoe attempted a 95kg for her second lift, which would give her a 6th place on the ranking list on bodyweight and a good chance of qualification to Rio only to have this not passed.

Zoe seems to like nothing more than making us all squirm and worry but she came out and passed the 95kg on her third and final attempt.  Zoe placed third overall in this competition but at this time it is all about qualification for Rio.  Everyone at Suffolk Spartans is so proud of Zoe and hopefully she has just secured her second Paralympic Games and we look forward to her back in training with us again next week where the hard work begins.
