BRITISH UNIVERSITY CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017
A big thank you to everyone who made these championships the biggest and best we have run to date. We had over 300 lifters from more than 35 universities and a total of 23 hours of lifting over two very full days on two platforms. The standard of lifting was impressive and we look forward to being able to send top rate teams to the World Championships.
We would like to thank In particular:
Kevin Jane the promoter for providing the excellent facilities at Moulton College. Fred Sterry for doing all the paperwork and planning the lifting programme.
Marc Giles for MC ing Platform 1 and providing the platform crew and his equipment. Also Bryn Evans for the use of his PA system. Plus the great table staff.
Ian Finch for announcing on Platform 2 and his excellent table staff. Plus the Dean Bowring platform crew, who did a tremendous job.
All the referees and there was an impressive turnout by all concerned.
