Gold for Bristol weightlifter Williams
A FEMALE weightlifter from the Empire Sports Club in Bristol has competed for Wales in the Four Nations Olympic Weightlifting Tournament in Bangor.
Gemma Williams, 27, competed for Wales in the 75+kg category and received gold in her group.
Gemma matched the Welsh Senior record and lifted a total of 165kgs.
The rules of the competition differ from Olympic weightlifting as results count as a team, meaning one failed lift can dramatically affect the overall score.
