Congratulations to Gareth Edwards (MetamorFIT Gym, Eastbourne) who has successfully passed his probation period and is now a full referee. Many thanks to our technical committee that approved his sign off at the British Power Champs on 1st April.
Firstly thank you to all the lifters that participated in today’s competition. We lost Josh Davidson due to injury (we hope he makes a speedy recovery) so had 12 lifters take the platform. Max Ell took the best ladies lifter award up against Jenny Watson of Eastbourne. Rory Hoad competed against all local open lifters to take the best open but couldn’t quite catch Pete Tryner who received best masters and overall champion. A very warm welcome to Steve Shah (68) and Martin Doolan (76) who lifted tremendously well in their first national comps. We were treated to a feat of strength show and record breaking attempts by Jenn Tibbenham and Gary Ell as our half time entertainment. Finally a massive thank you to Chris Bass for scoring, Frank Allen for drug testing (2 tests were carried out), Natalie Voce, Jenn Tibbenham and our other referees. A special mention also to our loaders and supporters. Thank you everyone for a great day.
