The confusion you may or may not have over Sonny Websters bronze was probably down to him taking the Bronze medal in the Junior European championships 2013 in Tallin where he was up against YouTube sensation Clarence Kennedy ?

He's a great lifter - he's cleaned the 190s just not put together a fantastic set of lifts together "Yet"

Maybe this week he will !

Thanks Mark. How's Shaun feeling? How are you thinking things will go down?

He's obviously enjoying it ..

Getting physio everyday so is feeling loose and strong ..

Bodyweight today 69.45kg .. I like his positive attitude - he feels like he's lost the weight really productively so has convinced himself he can match his totals that he's been hitting @ 74/5kg over the last year

It's a tough gig out there under the lights mate, as you know .. He'll have to get all his lifts if he wants a medal.

I personally am not that bothered about that .. I only concern my self with the overall progression of his total . He's progressed this year and consequently gets to lift in a very exciting competition . He should try and do his best but also try and enjoy himself ..

He'll be back and if he gets his head in the game can win the next games .

I feel the same as you Mark, he is a young dude in a game that depends so much on physical maturity as well as athleticism, his time isn't this Games even if he does do really well. I'm honoured you think that I know what its like out there in front of the lights Happy

Point is, it's easy to look at the junior phenomenons who blast it at 18-20 years old, but the true greats stay in the game and keep on getting better for a lot past that.

For example we have one fella who is a thrower in Cyprus, went to my school. 6 foot something, 120 odd kilos, very powerful build, won a Youth Olympic medal and a scholarship to the top athletics school in the USA. But he has had it ingrained that he is preparing for the 2016-2020 big competitions as he is still only 19 or 20 in an older man's game, everything before that is a bonus. He is very talented but has been told the same as what you are telling Shaun really, fun to compete, but make sure the progress overall is there and things will fall into place in a much more substantial way. He may well win a medal at these Games but they are just a stepping stone early in his career.

So, not to stray too much, hopefully Shaun has a brilliant day and time in Glasgow, and is fired up for the next targets when the dust settles!

She's "out of retirement" for a last hurrah Andy. Been lifting well recently, she broke the British snatch record a few months ago I think.

I was at her gym a few weeks ago, she seems nice enough and she apologised for not having thinner plates for me to deadlift lololol

Potentially the WL match of the games. Excellent.

I will say the Glasgow2014.com site has some very good in depth results for all sports. Good on them. No winning totals/names of top 3 only nonsense, full results with all attempts and athletes.
