Hey all, you've likely heard it a few times now but when one of Vic City's own does something outstanding, we shout it from the rooftops!
Coach Rachel Siemens is set to lift in the World Weightlifting Championships tomorrow (Saturday)! This means she will be competing against the absolute best athletes from around the globe in a very important year - the year before the 2020 Olympics!
Many athletes will be putting their hands up to be selected to their Olympic teams so there are sure to be some amazing lifts.
Having watched these athletes in the past (including from 20' away as a bar loader in the 2003 World Championships), I can attest to their incredible skill and strength.
Rachel lifts at 8:30am and will be contesting the snatch followed by the clean and jerk.

Good luck Rachel, we're all cheering for you!
