The October Open was a huge success! We had 18 lifters compete over 2 sessions, which was outstanding considering it was Grand Finales! We had 10 new lifters, several from the CrossFit community! Weightlifting is growing!
In the Women's Session, several state records were broken. Autumn Lee set a new record in the Master's division for snatch, clean and jerk and total. Emily Perkes set new records in the Juniors division for snatch, clean and jerk and total. In the Seniors, Leilani Dawes broke the state record in the 75kg category for snatch, clean and jerk and total! Such a successful session!
The guys session proved to be just as exciting! Twelve lifters battled it out on the platform for new PBs! Kevin Slater set a new Masters record in the clean and jerk and Rob Galsworthy made his appearance back on the platform after 1.5 years away.
As always, thank you so much to the volunteers that make these competitions run smooth! We couldn't do it without you. If you are interested in helping out, we are always looking for loaders, refs and other helpers for the day!
