BU Scholar Noorin Gulam returns to Bournemouth with a gold medal and a Personal Best in the Snatch.
After many hours of travelling up to the Wythenshawe Forum Manchester where the English Senior Championships were being held. Noorin managed to land herself a gold medal in the -53kg class. With 11 women fighting for podium places, our own grabbed the top spot making 5 out of 6 of her attempts, lifting an impressive total of 154kg and a personal best with 70kg in the snatch discipline, just 2kg from the current British senior record!
Stuart Martin – BU Head Weightlifting Coach said “After an excellent start in the snatch Noorin had a shaky start to the Jerk but it is to her testament that she held her nerve against some really tough competition. She puts in everything that’s asked of her and thoroughly deserved to retain her title for the second year in a row.”
