2018 CPU Westerns: Team Manitoba Meet Report

Team Manitoba at 2018 CPU Western Canadian Championships

By Mark Oxer, Team Manitoba Head Coach

 

The 2018 Westerns in Edmonton Alberta; were the largest non-national event in Western Canadian history with over 260 lifters competing. There were two platforms with multiple sessions per day. Manitoba sent a team of 18 lifters to the event. The three day event had lifters from Manitoba lifting on each of the three days.

Friday was the busiest day at the event for Team Manitoba with 13 of our lifters participating; Friday morning the Juniors and Subjuniors participated in 3 lift and Friday afternoon/evening (after a bit of a delayed start) saw all of the bench only athletes lift. Saturday was the busiest day at the event as a whole as it was both male and female open lifters competing in 3 lift; Manitoba had 4 lifters competing on Saturday, 3 in the morning session and 1 in the afternoon. Sunday was the quietest day at the competition but still saw a lot of great lifting, Sunday was the day the Masters lifters competed in 3 lift; Manitoba had two lifters participating.

2018 Movement Powerlifting Classic Meet Report

By Alyssa Amanda Burg (Meet Director)

It has been over a week since the meet has concluded and as always here is the post-meet report.

I first and foremost would like to thank the owners of Movement for allowing the MPA to run a meet out of their gym.  The venue was an appropriate size for our 37 lifters, 6 officials, and numerous volunteers and spectators. Thank you Movement!

Just like every meet on this planet, it could not be possible without our volunteers.  Huge shout out to the MPA volunteer coordinator Jannelle Van Den Bosch for gathering volunteers for the set-up and day of the meet.

Our set-up crew consisted of:
Cody Dietrich (Co-owner of Movement)
Chris Cadiz (Co-owner of Movement)
Nhan Nguyen
Polo Marcalinas
