British Weight Lifting’s Chief Executive Officer Ashley Metcalfe, commented following the event…

‘The British Age Group Championships has again showcased the incredible talent at the grassroots level of weightlifting as well as the next crop of British international lifters.

With a near record entry and a fantastic atmosphere throughout the competition, our young lifters have set over 60 national records in addition to countless individual personal bests. 

I’m delighted and encouraged that this demonstrates the bright future of weightlifting and is a testament to the quality of lifters, coaches and the wider weightlifting community in this country.

I hope all the competitors enjoyed their experience at a national championships and wish them all the very best of luck as they continue their hopefully long and successful weightlifting careers.’
