Adam Fedorciow won the bronze medal at the British Senior Championship 2017 with a 140kg snatch and a 176kg clean and jerk. This was 4kg more than his gold medal-winning result from last year.
This year his silver medal turned to the bronze medal because of 2 very harsh decisions from the referees, who gave him 2 red lights and one white light twice – one for dropping 182kg early, despite Adam being given the down signal from the centre referee, and the second for moving his elbow during his jerk recovery.
Deborah Alawode competed in the 69kg category as a guest, which meant her points wouldn’t count towards our club. This was her first British Senior Championship, and she was the youngest lifter in her group. She got 2 personal bests – 90kg in the clean and jerk, and a 155kg total. She snatch 70kg, which would have also been a personal best. However she was given a no lift due to a slight press out in her left elbow.
