Summary of the performances of the BWS at the 3rd round of the interclub weightlifting competition, organized by us at the HSPC in Lasne.

This Sunday, May 8 was held the third round of interclubs, which we organized with the HSPC of Lasne. The coaches had a lot of work with 13 athletes of the BWS who participated in this competition, but not without results! Short summary: 

  • Martijn broke all his personal competition records and achieved a 5/6. 
  • Dirk added 1kg to reach exact the same total as Martijn.
  • Valentin added so many kilos to his total that we can't even count them, after being absent for over 2 years on the competition platform.
  • Thomas did a 6/6, and broke all his records to add 6 kg to his total.
  • Ka Lok did a very good performance as well, doing a 6/6, and breaking his records in the clean and jerk.
  • François-Xavier also did a 6/6 for his first competition and added a kilo to his snatch record.
  • Philippe also achieved a 6/6 and broke his record in the clean and jerk and his total competition record.
  • Despite a disturbed warm-up in the snatch, Erik still managed to break the Francophone League record with a clean and jerk of 107kg.
  • Melissa didn't just make the announcements and keep the scoreboard, she also broke all her competition records with a nice 6/6 performance.
  • And Mathilde did a 5/6 to add a kilo to her snatch record and 3kg to her total.

Our teams placed well in what was arguably our best day as a team. We qualified the maximum 2 teams for the final and are preparing for the last stretch of the interclub season.

Congrats to everybody who took part and brought precious points toward the overall ranking !

Congratulations also to our coaches and to Michael who passed his national referee exam!
