WAKEFIELD College Weightlifting Club’s top lifter Sean Glover came up trumps at the All Northern Senior Weightlifting Championships in Mytholmroyd.

He won the 94kg bodyweight class title.

Weighing in well inside the bodyweight class limit at just 89kgs, Glover lifted extremely well against top-class opposition.

His best lifts of 122kg (snatch) and 155kg (clean and jerk) totalled 277kg which also qualified him to compete in the British Senior Championships in July.

Glover, who is also the Wakefield College Weightlifting Club president, trains up to ten times a week at the College sports hall in Thornes Park.
