Overwhelmingly proud and in awe of @maddison_power lifting today at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires and coming away with 7th place and a best of 60kg in the Snatch and 77kg in the Clean & Jerk at 52.7kg body weight. What an amazing experience at only 15 years old!! She wouldn’t be here without the epic support and hard work from her team @50calhannay @burleigh_barbell_club & @amie_dietitian @targetnutrition and words cannot even begin to express the gratitude I have for everything they do day in and day out. And a massive thanks to all of the support from everyone back at home, the love can definitely be felt from here! 🌎

This is the comp we have been working for! ~ To lift with all your heart when it matters most ~
12 months ago @maddison_power set herself a goal to qualify for the 2018 Youth Olympics and yesterday at the Qld Junior & Senior State Championships she put herself in the number 1 Australian female youth position for selection at the end of July. She has told me many times I will do whatever it takes to get there and yesterday she proved that with her gutsy performance on the platform. Coming into her 3rd big comp of the month, and coming into it from behind, she had to pull out two lifts she had never attempted before, which she did with a 63kg snatch and a 79kg clean & jerk. I am beyond proud and in awe of her inner strength, drive and determination that she has at only 15 years old. There have definitely been some ups and downs along her journey and it has really been a battle right to the end but she never would of gotten there without some key people. @50calhannay there is no one I would rather shadow boxing in her corner ❀️ words cannot express the gratitude I have for everything you have done. You saw the fire in her and knew her goal and you put your heart and soul in to getting her there. She wouldn’t be where she is without you #dreamteam ❀️ @amie_dietitian @targetnutrition this would not have been possible without you! To keep a fussy eating 14-15 year only who won’t eat her veggies in her weight division and full of energy is an amazing feat! You have been an amazing strength for us especially in the last month and cannot thank you enough for always being there when we need it the most. ❀️ Thank you to @danmarshall for getting Maddys body ready and continually striving to making her stronger and more balanced. πŸ™
Also a shout out to the people that have been backing her all the way @hdunne72yahoo @bronnyyy__ @dhastings79 @laurenn_hastings thank you πŸ™ They say it takes a village and we have a damn good one #teamBUBC @linzeyb @n.morland @theevolutionofjen @brandon_wakeling thank you so much for being a part of her coaching team over the years and playing a special part in getting her to where she is today. πŸ™Œβ€οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ₯‡#apologiesforthelongpost

Couldn’t be prouder of the guts and determination she showed and the hard work she has put in to get here. Special shout out to Coach Cal @50calhannay for supporting her all the way, believing in her & getting her ready for the challenge and to @amie_dietitian @targetnutrition for the never ending support, messages, and nutritional plans to make sure Maddy can compete to her full potential in her weight category, it definitely hasn’t always been an easy ride and we couldn’t do it without you! Cannot wait to see how this next month plays out while she chases down the final goal she has been working so hard to achieve. You’ve got this Maddy πŸ’ͺπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ₯‡β€οΈ @qldweightlifting @awfcomau #weightlifting #nationalchampion #olympiclifting #youthlifter #strong #girlswholift #dreambig #chasehard #goals #hardworkpaysoff #howbaddoyouwantit #earnednotgiven
