British Weight Lifting Performance Pathway Manager Stuart Martin commented,

 The team is one of the biggest we have sent to the World Youths over the last couple of years. All athletes have shown great progress over the last 12 months and inspire a real sense of optimism for the next generation of lifters coming through. With a number of other youth athletes on the fringes we are expecting to see more athletes coming through over the next few years and a large European Youth Championships team in September. As a consequence of the directed effort of young athlete’s, their clubs and coaches as well as the infrastructure of support we are looking to grow around young athletes in the pathway”
