Finally made it onto the weightlifting platform. Albeit a pretty lame performance...  Had hoped to total 100 but only managed 92.  Snatches were good in the warmup up to 35kg  then went flat at 40 on the platform, 2 subsequent attempts at 42 were a dismal failure.

Clean and Jerks were better, 2 successful attempts  47 & 52.  Third attempt at 56, which would have been a PB, was red lighted on a technicality, apparently 2 refs felt that I pressed out the jerk.  Oh well, that's how it goes.  I have a total recorded now and something to beat.

Scott:  Thanks for leaving the comment - Its all about the attitude lifting those kind of weights :-)
