Winter 2020 – Life in Lockdown

As Belgium went into its second lockdown this Fall from the Corona virus, I took part in two different virtual weightlifting competitions. One was the European Masters (where I won a silver medal for my category, see below) and the other was the virtual Welsh Open (where I won a gold for my category). I filmed the second one at 3-2-1 Fit in Heverlee, where my former teammate Pieter Jan runs a personal training facility.

Virtual competitions involve filming your lifts and sending them in for assessment. You do not know what your competitors are doing nor do you always know who is entering. So it is not the same thing as a live competition.
