At the weekend Noorin Gulam breaks the British U23 weightlifting record (53kilo class) held by Olympian Zoe Smith since 2008.
Noorin has been training every day (20 hours per week) for this event and went to Central Open Mansfield over the weekend; travelling up with a team of other Bournemouth University students; including her personal & also SportBU’s S&C coach Stuart Martin. Noorin has had a very challenging year with injuries but her attitude leading up to the competition was exactly where it needed to be.
Noorin’s coach, Stuart Martin said ‘Everything came together on the day and neither of us were in doubt that she would hit this as a goal for the season. I am very proud that she came through a difficult year to achieve this goal.’
