The Cottonera High Performance Centre, living up to its reputation and role as the base for the weightlifting sport in Malta duly succeeded in securing once again first place.

This meant that the overall winners of this event were Cottonera HPC at first place with 1363 points , followed by, The Pit, CrossFit 356 and University degree plus.

It was a great competition for the spectators but also one for the sport’s future on the Maltese Islands, all athletes registered personal best and 3 national records were broken on the day.

These positive results from the athletes are the fruit of the intense training camp by Tamas Feher held in Malta few weeks ago with the help of the International weightlifting federation.

The competition opened with the cadets category where the athletes who participated gave good performance by their attempts and good technique.

In the second competition for female athletes was dominated by The Pit team, with two new athletes on the scene, Kirsten Borg and Yazmin Zammit Stevens gave a good performance and achieved satisfactory results.In the third and last competition we saw in action some of the best weightlifters present locally together with other athletes that have good potential.

In this competition many athletes improved and broke precedent results, Sean Cutajar with 162 points and Andy Grech with 214 points.
This competition had also very good results from athletes like Martin Pisani lifting the total of 239kg, Matthew Camilleri 217kg and Anton Micallef 189kg. For these athletes amongst others this competition served as final preparation for international competitions being held next month in Serbia and Switzerland.

Kieran Mifsud, has just returned from the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa where he placed 4thand set 6 national records in the 94kg category, continued with his good performances and improved the level by establishing another two national records both in youth and in junior.

The last athlete who dropped scene in this competition was Rodmar Pulis, giving his top performance after gaining significant international experiences. This accumulation of high level performances, intense training and focus enabled Pulis to set an impressive 245kg total.

Next month both Rodmar Pulis and Kieran Mifsud will represent our country in the European juniors to be held in Lithuania.
