Weightlifting — April Victorian Schools League Competition

Personal Bests tumbled in the Weightlifting Postal Competition held on Friday 28 March 2014.

In the second leg of the Victorian Schools League, we took weightlifting to the masses and set up and ran the competition in the yard of the Tiverton Campus. With the added support given by their peers, all of our team achieved Personal Bests, under expert coaching from Old Collegian, Simon Francazio.

Snatch Clean & Jerk
S. Gardiner 33 41 (his body weight!)
N. Chatgoglou 47 60
J. Dakdouk 62 80
J. Saddington 60 78
B. Morgan 76 90

Special congratualtions to both Jayden Dakdouk & Bryce Morgan who, with their lifts, have qualified to represent Victoria for the 2014 National Weightlifting Titles in October in Tasmania. Jay Saddington requires only a further 7kg to qualify and this is well within his reach.

Thanks to Peter Harte for an outstanding job as announcer.
