Commonwealth Games Results Day 1

Kelly-Jo Robson lifted a personal best on the Clean & Jerk to finish sixth in the women’s weightlifting 48kg category.

Kelly commented,

[On being at the GC] “It feels amazing, and it’s like ‘pinch me’, I’m actually here! I had a bit of a fight for my position here between the other 48kg girls and then I got picked. It is a little bit scary. 

[On preparation] “Just literally going through coaching points in my head and going over what my coaches have said to me while you’re in training. Just keep composed, breathe and do what you do in the gym every day and keep running through those coaching points and I suppose that’s the best you can do.”

Hannah Powell of Wales recorded a total of 128kg in the Women’s 48kg category to finish 10th and in the Men’s 56kg category Seth Casidsid of Wales finished 9th with a total of 186kg.
