Three Weightlifting Champions!

On Saturday at Oxford, the St Augustine Academy weightlifting team did a fantastic job of clearing up the trophies at the Southern England Schools Weightlifting Championships.

They all won 1st place in their body weight categories with Carys Harper (yr 11) gaining a personal best in the clean & jerk of 62kg and 40kg in the snatch. Toby Dean of year 9 lifted 45kg in the clean & jerk and 38kg in the snatch whilst year 7 star, Kyran O’Connor, managed 21kg in the clean & jerk and 15kg in the snatch at his first competition!
Well done and congratulations to the terrific trio!
