Virtual British Championship 2021 Results

The event saw an unprecedented number of entries from across the UK with lifters from development all the way up to masters, entering the competition.  In total there were 425 lifters, many entering a national competition for the first time. The number of female entries was significantly higher than their male counterparts, highlighting the vastly growing popularity of weightlifting amongst the female population.

There were also many stand out performances across all the age groups and categories, highlighting the ever-growing strength and development of weightlifting in the UK.

The largest total in the men’s senior competition was a highly impressive 350kg by Cyrille Tchatchet in the male 96kg class, this was also the highest Sinclair score of the entire competition with 394 points.

The largest total in women’s competition was recorded by Leah Clark with a fantastic 216kg total in winning the 87+ class, following up from her winning performance of 210kg at the British Championships held at St Mary’s University in June. Laura Hollobon in the 59kg class had the highest Sinclair points total amongst the female competitors with 250 points and a 183kg total taking a well-deserved first place.

The youth competition had some outstanding battles and, in some cases, only a few kg separating the lifters. The standout performances went to Frankie Williams (male U17 50kg class) with a 202kg total and an outstanding 339 Sinclair points and Bella Brown (U17 76kg class) with a 184kg total and an impressive 218 Sinclair points.

The masters event saw many notable performances from the most experienced lifters from across the UK. The lifters ranged in age from 35 all the way through to our most experienced lifters at 68 years, all showcasing that weightlifting really is a sport for all ages.

After submission, all of the lifts were independently judged by three licensed Technical Officials, external to the organisation to ensure the high competition standards were maintained. Thanks must go to all our competitors, coaches and in particular our team of outstanding volunteer Technical Officials who without which our competitions could not happen.

The Virtual British Championships allowed a great opportunity for our members to return to the platform in spite of the government restrictions as a result of Covid-19. As we progress through the easing of restrictions, we hope there will be many more opportunities for our members to compete again.
