2013 League Off to a Great Start

Eighty-eight athletes took to the competition platform over the course of 6 competition sessions to kick off the 2013 QWA League and Masters League with Round 1 at the Cougars Weightlifting Club last weekend.

Three new clubs made their State competition debut and 21 competitors lifted for the first time at this event.  New affiliates: Gold Coast Weightlifting Club, Death Alley Barbell Club, and CrossFit Morayfield Weightlifting Club, added to the large field of competitors from Brisbane, Toowoomba, Sunshine Coast; and as far away as Mount Isa.

The enthusiastic crowd was treated to some fine performances; and 15 National Records and 28 State Records were broken.

Robin Parr (Cougars) set new Australian Youth Records in the women's 44kg category.

And Shane Wagner (Toowoomba) set new Australian Youth Records in the men's 85kg category.

The event went off without a hitch, thanks to the dedicated volunteers of the Cougars Weightlifting Club; and the volunteer Technical Officials from around South East Queensland.
