Belgian senior national championships, 13 Dec, Zaventem

At the sports hall of my club’s home city, we hosted the National seniors yesterday.  At the age of 50, I still qualify as a senior in Belgium as we (currently) have no minima for cadets and women for the national due to lack of numbers.   That may change as we had 14 women sign-in to lift yesterday.

I got the gold for the -75kg senior category, and two good ladies took the cadet and junior titles, so there is more coming up the pike!   Got all six lifts with all white lights, so it was a good outcome.

My coach Tino put a lot of effort into the organisation of this, and thanks to all my clubmates who helped load, rack, move stuff, pack stuff, and generally stood around and applauded.

Photos below.   I went home after for cheese fondue, wine, chocolate and a hot bath.  Yet I still woke up at 4am with the need for a shower for the traps. Shot of me and my teammates below, plus others.  Thanks to both Dorian and my hubby for the photos.
