Team GB enjoy successful German Training Camp

An eight strong squad of four male and four female lifters travelled across the continent accompanied by three national coaches.

The Women’s contingent included Zoe Smith, Fraer Morrow, Emily Campbell, Hannah Powell while among the Men selected were Edmond Avetisyan, Chris Murray, Jonathan Chin, and Owen Boxall. The lifters were put through their paces by coaches Andrew Callard, Dave Sawyer and Christie Williams.

Throughout the week the squad trained alongside the German national team and at the end of the week they entered into a local competition.

Training camps are an essential part of the British Weight Lifting Performance programme as they help athletes adapt to international environments which is critical when competing across the globe. They also allow lifters to climatise to different types of cuisine, time periods and simulate a realistic competition experience.
