This was a well-organised and enjoyable Saturday at a lake resort, with international Master lifters and a group of under 17 (U17) getting together for a friendly competition. Many thanks to the organiser, Gerhard Peya, who puts on a good event with proper equipment, good refereeing and a good atmosphere for all. I won my age group, and got the largest trophy of my career to-date, which did limit my shopping later in Vienna as it took up a chunk of my luggage!
New Belgian Masters records for me for clean and jerk and for total. Got all six lifts, so was a good day.
Next up, the World Masters in Copenhagen the last weekend of August. Diet time!! After a week in Austria, I need to live on some salad for a while. 😉
Photos below. Lifting at the lake had its own challenges, mainly the hot sun and the bikini and speedo clad audience. 🙂
