2012 British U18 Championships in Bristol

With the help of Barnhill Community High we drove 9 qualified lifters by Barnhills minibus to Bristol.bristol

All of our qualified lifters have been chosen from 5 different boroughs and we decided not to take one of our best lifters because  she missed 3 weeks of training and missed out on a Bronze medal.


In Bristol there were 37 different lifters from all around the country and a quarter of our lifters were there. As usual, like last year in the 2011 Bristol U13s andOldbury U18s and U21s and Holyheads U17s we had the most amount of people in one club to compete in the British Championships.


This time we had 2 golds, 3 silvers, 2 bronzes, 1 fourth and 1 seventh.
