2020 Physique Science QWA League and Masters League results

The 2020 Physique Science QWA League and Masters League Round 2 saw members go from a chilly Toowoomba just a couple of weeks previously, to Milton where they turned up the heat!!

Numerous new personal bests were set by the competing athletes.

Our Masters lifters dominated with the number of records broken. Bobby Johnson (Southside Storm), Darrel Naude, Dion Walmsley, Jeff Davie, Tara Noonan (Cougars), Tim Redhead (Milton) and Minoru Yamasaki all set new records. Congratulations!!

Leo Lark of Milton Weightlifting Club coached by Mike Keelan gave the crowd a thrill with his National and State Senior record breaking attempt at 167kg in the Clean and Jerk competing in the 81kg category.

A BIG thank you to the Milton Weightlifting Club team on putting together such a great event. 

Erika Yamasaki was on hand at the competition to coach her father in his first official competition. The QWA took this opportunity to present her with a QWA #strongertogether backpack in recognition of her place in the AWF Super Squad.

Final Entries & Attendance Process for 2020 Physique Science QWA League comp

Updated final entries can be found HERE  For competition venue information click HERE

We thank you for your patience and co-operation around the COVID Safe conduct of the resumption of QWA State competitions. We continue to research and trial different methods of managing maximum number restrictions, and also the documentation of information for Queensland Health contact tracing.

In an effort to streamline this process we are using Sign-up Schedule for this competition

Athletes will be required to sign-in on arrival at the competition – and ensure they keep their Field of Play pass they are given at sign-in with them. No need to book a spot. Athletes have an automatic allocation of one coach and two spectators via the Sign-up Schedule.

TO’s and official Volunteers will be required to sign in on arrival – and wear a Field of Play pass issued at sign-in in a visually prominent place eg lanyard whilst they are on duty. No need to book a spot.

Coaches need to sign-up for the sessions they have lifters in via the Sign-up Schedule. Then sign in on arrival at the competition, ensuring they wear a Field of Play pass - collected at sign-in, in a visually prominent place eg lanyard. Also please remember your Blue Cards.

Where a coach has more than one lifter in a category and is not using Assistant Coaches for the other lifters, those other Coach allocation spots may be used by an additional spectator of the lifter. ONLY ONE COACH/PERSON PER ATHLETE IS PERMITTED IN THE WARM-UP AREA.

Spectator spots have been set at two per lifter, with an additional allocation of spare spots. Please ensure you only sign-up for the ones you need. All spectator bookings need to include name, phone number and email address. We would prefer that all spectator bookings be made via the Sign-up Schedule by 2.00pm on Friday 4th September. This will enable us to have a speedier check in service at the competition. YOU MUST SIGN-UP ON THE SIGN-UP SCHEDULE IF YOU WISH TO ATTEND AS A SPECTATOR



Do not attend if you are unwell;

Do not attend if you have had contact with a COVID positive person;

Ensure you maintain social distancing;
