Last weekend 6 of our young guys accompanied by Coach/Wildboar Mum Rachel headed up to Birmingham for our guys first competition in a few months.
Our guys haven’t competed since February so this was a little run out on the platform to blow off some cobwebs before they compete at the first competition in our new facility on August 11th.
Here is a little run through how they got on!
Jake had another solid outing on the platform and was itching to get out and show off his Wildboar singlet.
Jake hit a 162kg total finishing with a 72kg snatch and a 90kg Clean and Jerk. We are excited to iron out a few things over the next couple of weeks and bring a big total to the platform in 2 weeks time!
Melody has had a busy period with exams etc but jumped at the opportunity to get back on the platform.
She had a great day hitting a PB 73kg Total, including a 33kg Snatch PB and a 40kg Clean and Jerk. Melody is studying at the Forest Sports Education next year and has been allowed time to commit to her training so we are excited to see how she develops.
Campbell also stepped out onto the platform coming out of a busy period with finishing his college studies.
As always he stepped things up on the platform finishing with a PB total of 177kg, including a 75kg (power) SnatchPB and a 102kg Clean and Jerk PB.
Mia stepped out on the platform as calm and collected as ever and hit a new Comp PB total of 97kg.
She finished with a comfortable 42kg snatch and a Comp PB Clean And Jerk of 55kg. We are looking forward to seeing her out on the platform on August 11th.
Josh was also itching to get back on the platform after being away from it since February.
He finally broke the 120kg total barrier hit at his previous couple of comps by hitting a 126kg total. He hit a 50kg Snatch narrowly missing out on hitting a new PB, then hit a 76kg Clean and Jerk for a comp PB!
We are excited to watch him beat this total again in two weeks time.
Last but not least, young Libby had a successful day out on the platform.
Libby hit a PB 71kg total finishing with a PB snatch at 31kg and a 40kg Clean and Jerk.
Another successful day for Libby and we are excited for her further development.
We are excited to bring you more blog posts in the future of our young teams progress. Particularly as we have a few training for the British Championships in October.
A huge thanks also to our sponsors,
