Inter-Chapter Weightlifting Competitions Start

St Augustine’s already highly successful Weightlifting Club is now starting a monthly series of inter-Chapter competitions which will act as a ‘taster’ for the younger members of the club. The first of these competitions, which are open to all in years 7 & 8, was held at the end of last term and was efficiently and expertly judged by ‘veteran’ year 10 lifter, Sky Burns, assisted by Carys Harper and Joao Teodoro.

Due to the young age of the competitors, the criteria for judging was technique and not the amount of weight that they were able to lift. Congratulations go to the winner for this first event who was Sam Gladman in year 8 – well done!

It is intended that there will be a competition every month, either in the Academy or at an outside venue.
