The 2010 Canadian Senior Weightlifting Championship recently took place in Quebec featuring 115 lifters from seven provinces. Kayla Turner, a 22-year-old student, left the meet as the best local lifter.

She competed in the 63 kilo class (138.8 pounds) and completed each of her 6 attempts. She finished with 73 kilos (161 lbs) in the snatch and 85 kilos (187 pounds) in the clean and jerk. She ended the meet with 158 kilo (348 pounds) total. The clean and jerk as well as the total lift, are new school records.

She missed the podium by 0.2 kilo’s, not even half of a pound, but she is young, strong and determined!
