Travelled from home to Rotherham and checked into a hotel which we have not used before. Very modern place with good facilities. Most of the team are staying here during the weekend. I joined three of the lifters for dinner which was a great social occasion, although one of them is weighing in tomorrow so menu choices were limited!
Day 1 starts tomorrow with 4 of our guys competing in flights 1 and 2. A great two days of lifting ahead.
Thursday night and it’s time to get the photographic gear all sorted and ready for the weekend. The Powerlift Media website is now updated with the Live Blog. The Phoenix Performance team have all met at the team ‘HQ” to go through preparations for each lifter and organising the teams activities for the weekend.
