This morning Emily competed in the +87kg category at the world championships in Tokyo and placed an incredible 9th.
In a competition which saw Li Wenwen from China land an incredible 146kg Snatch alongside an immense 186kg clean & jerk to take the victory, some great lifts were achieved by many.
Emily totalled 267kg overall. She managed to keep a cool head after technical difficulties at the venue and land a 114kg snatch. Then in the Clean and Jerk, she surpassed her old British record by 8kgs lifting 153kg. Emily now holds the top 5 heaviest lifts ever performed by a British weightlifter. Emily is now one step closer of her dream and qualifying for the Olympic Games, back here in Tokyo next year.
We are super proud at Profeet to have been able support Emily’s progression with our insoles in her competitions and her training! Congratulations
Thank you so much Profeet for supporting me, my insoles are still going strong!”
