Two members of the Guelph Barbell Club competed at the Toronto Cup - Aaron at 85 kg and Zack at 94 kg.
Zack has been training for less than a year and this was his first weightlifting competition. After hitting an 88 kg snatch, he went on to make a 99 kg C&J. He also put up 102 kg for attempt #3, which was really close to being complete! But the refs seemed to think there was an elbow bend (I disagree, but I might be biased). Zack will nail this weight for sure next time.
Aaron hit his opening snatch at 82 kg. This was followed up by solid C&Js at 105, 109 and 112 kgs. Aaron finished with a PR competition total of 194 kg, a new C&J PR and a bronze medal. Not a bad day for Guelph Barbell Club!
