24 Apr Team Selected for Junior Battle 2018
On 31st May, four coaches from Weightlifting Wales will be heading out to Lochen, Austria, with a team to compete at the Junior Battle. The Junior Battle, formerly called the Fulda Cup is a junior tournament which is about to run for its 17th consecutive year. The team will be made up of 8 athletes; starting with the female team will be 17 year old (unattached) Catrin Jones, 17 year old Lauren Evans from Breeze’s and 14 year old Seren Mitchell from SAW. The male team includes 12 year old Daniel Davies from SAW, 14 year old Harvey Morris from Breeze’s, 13 year old Liam Davies from Crossfit Caerphilly, 14 year old Leon Finnegan from SA1 and 16 year old Sam Roberts from NW1. The competition is judged on sinclair points, with their total and bodyweight taken into consideration to calculate points, as opposed to the lifters just competing in weight categories. Lifters will compete against other lifters in their age category from all across Europe and will add points to the overall team with their final sinclair scores’. This competition is a fantastic developmental opportunity for our lifters, congratulations and good luck to each member of the team!
