Performances of the BWS athletes at the Belgian Weightlifting Championships

Results of the national championships! The BWS team went home with 4 medals out of 4:

  • Thomas added a whopping 11kg to his best total in this category to take an unexpected but well deserved bronze medal
  • BWS President, coach and athlete Anna Vanbellinghen won the gold medal in the -87kg category while still recovering from knee surgery
  • Dirk won the bronze medal in the -96kg category and had promising but not quite successful attempts at personal bests
  • Saleh won the -102kg bronze medal and set a new snatch competition record

As per usual, the club was also represented by some athletes who are not eligible for the ranking because they are not Belgian nationals:

  • Pablo (ESP) went 6/6 and absolutely smashed all his PRs with 106 + 141. He also achieved the best performance of the team
  • Martijn (NL) was recovering from an illness and gave his best to lift 99 + 127
  • Cristina (ESP) beat her snatch and total PRs with 64 and 137 
  • Laura Liukkonen (FIN) lifted as a guest and had the best total in her category 
  • Melissa (ITA) was understandably nervous for her first national championships but managed to achieve 53 + 60

For most of the athletes, it is now time for a well-deserved rest, but some will still participate in the Challenge Jacques Bodart next weekend in Seraing.

Thank you to Miguel Sagredo for the pictures !
