Countdown to Lima

GBR Announces Team for 2014 IWF World Youth Weightlifting Championships.

Countdown to Lima

British Weight Lifting is proud to announce its lifters for the upcoming IWF World Youth Championships in Lima, Peru. Between 22 - 26 May, the capital city will host the world's most talented young weightlifters, and GBR is ready to make its mark.

Phoebe Davis will lift in the Women’s 59kg category, after two years with the national youth squad and smashing records at the English Age Groups in Maidstone, where she totalled 163kg. Maddie Rosher, competing in the Women’s 71kg, comes with the title of Scottish Senior Champion and a total of 186kg from the Scottish National Championships.

They're not going alone; Lead Pathway Coach Kristian McPhee and Amy Kirby-Saunders will accompany the athletes, providing their invaluable experience and support.

The IWF World Youth Championships are a highly competitive arena, and it's thrilling to have Phoebe and Maddie, who have shown incredible growth, represent GBR as they step into this significant international spotlight,” said McPhee.

We extend our gratitude to Sport England and Sport Scotland for supporting these athletes through their development as youth athletes. Their involvement in the regional pathway program and national youth squads has been an essential part of their journey to reach the highest level of competition.

Join us in supporting our team as they prepare to make their mark on the international stage.
