The Very First Northern Ireland Open Champs – 4th March 2018

The very first Northern Ireland Championships were an outstanding success. Promoted by Stevie Shanks and Steve Gardner in an effort to engage with a number of lifters from Northern Ireland and to create what we hope to be a new permanent fixture.

The competition was well supported by visitors from the mainland and 9 lifters made it to the platform. Unfortunately some were unable to make it due to the recent bad weather.

The full results can be found here.

Best Masters and overall champion went to Paul Barette with Clive Madge in second place and new NI lifter Jason Kelly in 3rd place. Best Open Lifter Gareth Edwards and Best Ladies lifter Karen Gardner.

Here are some photos from the day.
