After five months, a happy outcome – European Master Games 2015, Nice, France

On 23 April, I had major surgery with a total hysterectomy.  And on 3 October, after five months of rehab and recovery, I did what I love and lifted again in international competition.  Got all six lifts with all white lights, a silver medal, and achieved my world qualifying total for next year.  Very happy outcome, with serious thanks to my rehab team and ironically enough, my Italian competitor and her coach who both played a part in my success this weekend in helping coaching me.  Masters weightlifting is about everyone doing their best and having fun, and that is why I love it.  Met some lovely folks as well, and had a great time, shame about the extreme rainy weather…. which was over by Sunday as you see in the last photo……..

    Hello Alea,
    I hope you are well!
    In the meantime I reactivated my blog with my story about rheumatism and weightlifting.

    Did you have some plans for 2016, did we meet again? That would be great!
    I wish you a wonderful christmas time and a successful and healthy Year 2016
