About UCC Olympic Weightlifting
We are the Olympic Weightlifting Club, we train in the technique and strength based weightlifting style as seen in the Olympics. The two main moves in this are the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk but we do plenty of other accessory strength work as well to support them.
We only started last year but already have many members of all ages, genders and nationalities training with us and have a great community. We are a very inclusive club and happily welcome new members no matter what time of year it is.
We done very well at inter-varsities this year taking away ten medals for UCC with a massive seven being taken by the ladies. We are very interested in doing a lot more competitions this year now that we are more established as a club.
Olympic weightlifting is something that is suitable for everyone regardless of your skill level and has been shown to really compliment other types of sports as well.
It doesn’t matter if you just want to train for fun or if you are interested in the more competitive side of the sport, our club accommodates both!
Come along for a look anyway and give it a go, you never know until you try!
