2011 British Masters Centenery Weightlifting Championship

This being the BAWLA (or BWLA or BWL) Centenary Year it seemed relevant to   make every effort to make this a special championship for everyone involved, lifters and officials, I hope it was.

The entry list had 79 competitors and over the two days 70 lifters turned up to compete in 5 sessions on the first day and 4 sessions on the second day.

The two women' s sessions on day one provided some good lifting and some outstanding individual performances.The best lifter was Heather Allison with 200 SMM Points, second was Bev Pattison with 184, third Sue Trebillcock with 180, and fourth Jo McManus with 179.

The Mens' competition climaxed with an exciting finish and ended with a win for Jeff Williams, 2nd Rob Carpenter, 3rd Ryan Morton, and 4th Andrew Butler.

It was also good to see many new faces competing for the first time in a British Masters Championship as well as a few old faces returning to the championship platform.

A full report of the competition will be published in the next issue of the BWL Newsletter.
