Brisbane Barbell Club – November 2017 Update

2017 National Masters Weightlifting Championships

It’s been another huge month for the BBC! We had John Brown and Tara Noonan representing the club, and they both put in outstanding performances at the event on the Gold Coast. JB is now the 2017 Australian & Oceania Masters Champion, Pacific Rim Champion and Masters World Cup gold medallist in the 35-39 years 105kg class. Tara is now the 2017 Australian & Oceania Masters Champion, Pacific Rim Champion and Masters World Cup gold medallist in the 35-39 years 53kg class with a 130kg total.
