Lifting well above their weight!

25 Jul 2017

Congratulations to two of our Senior School students, Rourke (Year 10) and Ben (Year 9) who competed in the National U/15 and Youth Weightlifting Championships in Brisbane over the school holidays. Both boys represented the state and the school in admirable fashion, with Rourke bringing home a gold medal and Ben a bronze medal in their respective weight classes.

Rourke also broke two WA state records for his age and weight class in the Clean & Jerk (84kg) and Total Lifted (151kg). In addition to this, Rourke has been selected to represent Australia in the AWF Team competing at the 2017 Oceania Youth Weightlifting Championships taking place on the Gold Coast from 3-10 September.
