Weightlifting World Championships: Proud Husband and Coach

World Masters Weightlifting Nefi Charalambous Darden from Clint Darden on Vimeo.

We got up without much in the line of nerves, ate a full breakfast and headed to the arena. There were talks that a lot of women had planned to change categories at the last minute as everyone wanted their chance at a medal and there were a few girls that were looking to set World Records in the process. We agreed to just go and weight in whatever and let the cards fall. No stress, just make our numbers and go home.

So in the 69 kg category she weighed 69.8 kg after breakfast, with clothes, and needed to pee. In the end, the 75 kg category ended up being stacked and there were only 2 athletes in the 69 kg category.

We went to warm ups and things went well. She had to open higher than expected since she moved UP to the 75 kg class AND we had been watching the referees all weekend and they were MORE THAN STRICT. More than I'd ever seen anywhere.

Snatch: 45 (2 kg higher than her competition PR) three whites
48, comp PR, three whites
51, all time PR, miss

Clean and Jerk
57, three whites (2kg under comp PR)
60, comp PR, looked great, three reds
63, comm PR, looked great, two reds

This put her in 5th position by 1 kg in a very stacked class.

I couldn't be more proud so I will just let the videos and photos do the talking.
