Harrison Deeley competed in U17 age group, also performed very well, earning himself a gold medal once more after successfully defending his title as English Champion. Harrison competed with a bodyweight of 72.70 kg, lifting 75 kg in the snatch and a whopping 105 kg clean and jerk.
Seb Lawton U17’s, competed with a bodyweight of 57.60 kg also defended his English title, winning gold with a snatch of 70 kg and clean and jerk of 85 kg.
All round a very impressive result from the team, particularly as they had to train at home during lockdown. We hope to see the team continue to win medals in future competitions.
With much respect to Coach Karlsson for helping us with our lifting.
