SAA Weighlifters win again!

Congratulations are due to our students who took part in the London and South East Junior (under 21) Regional Championships a fortnight at Harrow School.  Some of the best lifters from a number of London schools and universities competed.  Our students were placed in groups against young adults and yet held their own.

The headline success story focussed on Carys Harper (year 10) who won a gold medal beating an 18 year old and a 21 year old on their home ground!

The following students also lifted superbly: Tom Capeling, Harry Mannering, Izzy Rundle and Matthew Abraham. More would have gained medals but this competition used a slightly unusual grouping of competitors which unfortunately meant that some of our students had to compete against much older university students.

 

However, the Vice president of the European Weightlifting federation was very impressed with our students and are looking at supporting some of them in the future.
