It was so great to see lifters back on the platform today! This was only the second weightlifting competition held in Australia since COVID-19 (Tasmania beat us by a day) and it would not have been possible without everyone's willingness to stick to our COVID-19 safety plan. Thank you.
We saw a lot of great lifting and the results are as follows:
1st Kelly Rau - 100kg total, SMF 167.818
2nd Darcy Elliston - 126kg total, SMF 167.094
3rd Valentina Cecchi - 118kg total, SMF 166.756
1st Andy Rideout - 200kg total, SMF 296.588
2nd Artem Li - 230kg total, SMF 254.851
3rd Carl Aleta - 132kg total, SMF 183.473
In addition, Andy Rideout set 3 new Australian Masters records in the M81, 45-49 class with a 88kg snatch, a 112kg clean and jerk, and a 200kg total.
Mickayla Perkins (Youth, W64), Carl Aleta (Youth, M67) and Artem Li (U23, M102) all hit qualification totals for national championships in their respective categories.
