  • That wasn’t an easy competition for coaches. 2 platforms, 12 lifters and no rest if you are the driver as well as jumping from left side to right side of the venue. Thanks must go toAdam Spence and his help for coaching the other side of the venue, he was a great help. Thanks to Kian for taking all photos and thanks to Mariam Gulam for the video recording.
