INVERNESS Olympic Weightlifting Club challenged athletes to show their strength while also raising money for charity.

The club held its Summer Lift Off event, its second ever in-house competition which also aimed to raise money for Cash for Kids.

A total of 31 lifters took part with Charlie Mcgrorey winning the men’s competition and Kimberly Ross taking the women’s title.

IOWC head coach Jordan Bowie says it was a tremendous competition which raised money for a good cause.

He said: “We had 31 lifters who took to the platform and some travelled as far as Dundee to lift in the competition. We had an overwhelming amount of spectators who came and support not only the club but Cash for kids too.

”We are looking to hold another competition come the end of the year for another local charity.

”Our outlook is to help increase the popularity of Olympic Weightlifting in the north of Scotland while helping the community and charities at the same time.”
