The annual Fall Classic saw the LPS Weightlifting Team capture two gold medals and one bronze medal, three provincial records and an overall inspiring performance! Mark Bui led the way winning gold in the male 56kg weight class and set two Ontario Senior records in the snatch with 88kg (194 lbs) and 89kg (196 lbs) lifts. Battling back from injury, Mark posted a 100kg (220 lbs) clean and jerk to automatically qualify for the 2016 Canadian Championships with a 189kg (416 lbs) total.
Gregory Batista followed Mark’s lead and broke his own Ontario Juvenile snatch record in the 85kg weight class with a snatch of 88kg (194 lbs). At only 15 years old, Gregory is turning heads!
Maya Laylor posted another stellar performance in the women’s competition as she captures gold in her weight class with a 90kg (198 lbs) snatch and a 110kg (242 lbs) clean and jerk. Her 200kg (441 lbs) total in the 69kg (152 lbs) weight class was good enough to be the 2nd ranked female lifter in the competition!
Tyler Gregory showed his grit winning bronze as he battled it out in the 94kg weight class, with a 105kg (231 lbs) snatch and a 125kg (275.5 lbs) clean and jerk. Great work everybody!
