BWL University Championships, April 1st 2017.

This Saturday just gone, Hallam Barbell lifter and Coach Jenny Tong competed in the British Weight Lifting University Championships held in Twickenham. Head coach Dave Hembrough was on coaching duties.

Having been Olympic lifting for around 18 months, Jenny’s had a few setbacks with injuries recently. She’s bounced back from that well, with a successful weight cut and PBs in both lifts during the week leading up to the competition.

A strong warmup saw Jenny open the Snatch at a weight she’d not lifted at competition before. She made all 3 snatches, finishing with a PB of 66kg.

The first 2 clean and jerks at 70 and 73kg went well, but Jenny just missed the third lift at 76kg. 66/73/139 total saw Jenny take third place and a lovely bronze medal.

A snatch PB and comp total PB for Jenny, great work! The close miss on the 76kg clean and jerk keeps the fire burning and something for Jenny to aim for at the Northern Champs in 3 weeks time.
