MYGYM’s Edmond Avetisyan comes second in Olympic Lifting British Championships

MYGYM regular Edmond Avetisyan came second last weekend in the Olympic Lifting British Championships.

Ed’s category (94 kg) was first to compete with an early 9 am start. He snatched 147 kg which placed him first. However, during the clean and jerks, his opener of 180 kg went very well, but the jump to 187 kg irritatingly left Ed missing the jerk.

There were a few hitch-ups with his final clean,  but overall coming in second was an incredible achievement!

Ed is now focusing on the under 23 Europeans in a few weeks’ time. Wishing him the best of luck and expect an update here!
