Successful Sport Cardiff Weightlifting Event

Successful Sport Cardiff Weightlifting Event

On 14th November, Sport Cardiff organised a Weightlifting Competition as part of the Cardiff Games calendar.

The competition saw eighteen girls and twenty-four boys from years 9-11 competing from three high schools; Cathays High School (Cardiff), Cardiff High School and St Josephs School (Newport).

Two platforms were run simultaneously, Sarah Dawes-Clarke, club owner of Weightlifting Wales affiliated centre Sakura in Cardiff, was score-keeper and girls judge during the competition, and Sport Cardiff representative Sophie Grosvenor was the boys judge.

Sarah said: “It was a fantastic event with everyone gathering around for the final lifts of the day – the atmosphere was electric!”

Well done to all those who competed in this event, and to those who organised a successful competition for these young lifters!
