The Aussie champion chalks up another victory!

Tia-Clair Toomey took the gold medal in the 58kg weightlifting category at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

I’m still trying to process the past 24hours but I would like to give a massive shout out to a bunch of people who made this experience possible. πŸ‘πŸΌ – My coaching team, the 3 of you executed the game plan perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for a better team. πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ – Thank-you so much to all the volunteers for all your help not only in competition but throughout the past week in training. 😍 – Thirdly a huge thanks to all the officials. You all ran a fantastic competition. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ – Also thanks to the team at Channel 7 and all the interviewers from all the other stations for all the fun last night and this morning. πŸ“Ί – @adeecazayoux from @workingagainstgravity for helping me with making weight. You are such a beautiful soul and I am so grateful for your ongoing support. βš–οΈ – AND……I wanted to leave the best for last…..THE CROWD!!! WOW!!! Words just can’t explain how sensational the atmosphere was last night. I’m surprised the other side of the world didn’t hear you all. Thank-you so so so much for all your cheering, it definitely fired me up to win the GOLD for Australia and Jade. 😘 THANK-YOU to everyone that came out to support me, you all made this experience πŸ’― times better than I could have ever imagine it would be. πŸ’šπŸ’› – #goldmedal #forjadey #liftlikeitsyourlast #thebestcrowd #thebestatmosphere #thebestsound #TeamAUS #greenandgold #goldcoast #homecountry #homecrowd #australia #beach #memories #myteam #myjourney #6putof6lifts #weigtlifting #58kgcategory

“πŸ’šAnd it’s over just like that. πŸ’›
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. πŸ‹οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

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! πŸ’ͺ🏼

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). πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

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. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ”
