Tia-Clair Toomey took the gold medal in the 58kg weightlifting category at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
“?And it’s over just like that. ?
I didn’t get much sleep as I have just been thinking about what an incredible battle I had with the other ladies on the platform. ?️♂️
I would have to say, out of all the amazing Weightlifting experiences I have ever been through last night was by far my highlight, not because of the gold medal but because of so much more! ??
The performance from ALL the athletes in the 58kg category, the crowd roaring every time I entered the room, my family and friends being there to support me (including Jadey in Spirit) and having the best coaching team in my corner, Shane (Husband & Coach), Miles & Greg (Competition coaches). ??
To me that is what competition is all about, getting to showcase all the hard work we have put in over the years. Congratulations & THANK-YOU so much ladies, we are all CHAMPIONS in my eyes as that was an incredible performance from each and everyone of us. It was a true honour to have been apart of it. ??”
