Today was the UK Invitational and this time it involved a trip to the snow tipped coast at Folkestone. This
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.
