A few more details
I actually tied for first place but the South African lifter was 200gms lighter than me at the weigh in and therefore won.
It was a very tough day and I am absolutely exhausted and covered in bruises and lacerations. I have learnt so much in my first international competition and can't wait to get back home to put it all into practice and really nail my Elite qualification next year. The referees were much tougher on the technical rules than a National competition and many of the other girls bombed out on an entire lifts. My total was down quite a bit on what I was looking at but the reasons are varied and I won't go into the list of things I learnt yesterday. So I will leave you with some positive thoughts of my journey.
  • I have a killer bench and was 17.5kgs clear of the silver medalist
  • My squat is coming together and the final 115kg lift had plenty left - look out 2008
  • In the past 12 months my total PB has increased 30kgs.

My total was;

  • Squat 115kgs
  • Bench 70kgs
  • Deadlift 130kgs

Total 315kgs

Hi Lisa,

Sounds like you learnt alot and the experience will make you grow even more.

Awesome weights there, proud of you and I am sure you're ecstatic with yourself.

Just goes to show you that one of my favourite sayings is true:
"Whilst most are dreaming of success, winners wake up and work hard to achieve it".
