Belle wins silver medal in weightlifting

Belle Harwood claimed a silver medal last weekend at the Australian Weightlifting Federation National Championships in Hobart. This was a great achievement, given that she was competing in the U/20 division and still has two years left in this age group. Belle ended up with lifts of 68kg in the snatch, and 87kg in the clean and jerk. Congratulations Belle. Well done!!
