CANADIAN TEAMS SNATCH GOLD AND SILVER AT THE 2019 WORLD MASTERS

 

 

The 2019 World Masters Weightlifting Championships will no doubt be long remembered by Canadian Masters lifters. First of all, the venue was held on home soil in Montreal, and from all accounts the organizers did a stellar job in making this a truly world class event. Canadian lifters responded in kind, with the Womens team capturing second place while the Men’s team captured first place.

 

The Canadian Masters Teams at international events are selected in a specific way.  First, invitations to compete at the 2019 World Masters are sent out to qualifying athletes by the IWF Masters Secretariat. Once athletes accept the invitation, the Office of the National Chair (ONC) considers two important criteria for team selection. Team points are based on an athlete’s potential medal position and the number of competitors in a category. Athletes are ranked according to their percentage of their qualifying total (QT). All of our team members had surpassed 120% of their QT. ONC also considers how many athletes are competing in the same category as the potential gold and silver medalists.  The greater the number of athletes in a category, the greater the points that can be potentially awarded. The members of the men’s and women’s teams for 2019 were as follows:

 

Team Canada Women, winning the second-place trophy was composed of (and in order of % above the QT):   Isabelle Gauthier, Laurie Meschishnick, Abigail Guerrero-Gonzales, Heather Amundred, Deidre Coburn, Rosalie Laurin-Larouche, Cathy Hambly, and Manon Poulin.

 

Team Canada Men, winning the first-place trophy was composed of (and in order of % above the QT): Marcel Perron, Doug Sinclair, Éric Chevrier, Glen Hutchinson, Gabriel Auclair, David Adams, Terry Hadlow, and Jocelyn Normand.

 

The CMWFHC also wishes to thank and congratulate all members who participated in this year’s competition. It was amazing to have over 150 of our athletes involved and we sincerely hope that it was an inspiring time of personal growth and development in your weightlifting journey. We look forward to seeing meeting you again in the year ahead.

 

 

IWF Press Release

IWF World Masters Championship reinforces weightlifting as sport for all

The IWF World Masters Championship concluded in Montreal on Saturday 24 August, following nine days of competition which showcased weightlifting as a sport that can be practised by men and women of all ages, body types, and backgrounds.

A total of 689 (385 male and 304 female athletes) from 54 countries competed in the Championship which received the original 1976 Olympic Games competition platform from Montreal. Athletes aged over 35 years of age took part in more than 90 categories divided by age and weight. This year a Preliminary Entry System was introduced to calculate the best 700 athletes per verified entry total registered.

The Championship’s oldest competitor was 87 year old Tsutomu Kobayashi from Japan, who competed in the M80/73kg and lifted a total of 77kg. Meanwhile in the women’s category, Lorraine Pelletier, born in 1943 from the host nation Canada, was the oldest female competitor and lifted a total of 66kg.

The Championships demonstrated the positive mental and physical benefits of weightlifting and the important role it can play in maintaining strength later in life.

IWF President Tamas Ajan said:

“The IWF World Masters Championship has once again demonstrated that people are never too old to get involved in weightlifting. We have seen men and women, from different countries and backgrounds, and different ages from 35 up to 87, come together through their shared love of weightlifting and the benefits it brings them. There are so many advantages of weightlifting and everyone is able to draw something different from the sport. These Championships are about more than who wins or who lifts the heaviest weights, they are about persistence and mental discipline and people challenging themselves to achieve their very best.”

The 2020 IWF Masters World Championships will be in Obrigheim, Germany from the 28 August to 6 September.

Merci – Thank you Power Performance Systems

Thank You
Merci

Power Performance Systems,

The CMWFHC would like to take a moment to thank you for all your hard work to get the team gear out to the Canadian Masters athletes. It has been brought up many times to introduce a team look for big competitions such at World Masters over the years…and although it has been done before, this has been the most successful year. It was a great pleasure to showcase our team gear in Montreal! Many of our Masters lifters proudly wore their PPS Canadian Singlet, the new bomber jackets and t-shirts and also some wore the warm-up shirts from Pan Am Masters 2018!

Thank you for being the CMWFHC team gear outfitter!

With much appreciation,

The CMWFHC Board, Advisory Committee and its Members

Montreal 2019 World Masters Weightlifting Championship

Successful Championships

Montreal, August 25, 2019 - The Montreal World Masters Weightlifting Championship concluded on Saturday. The competition, showcasing the world’s best weightlifters aged 35+, welcomed competitors from all continents, including 150 Canadians, at the Pierre-Charbonneau Centre. Athletes from 60 countries were competing, a record for a World Masters Championship.

Numerous athletes enjoyed their stay in Quebec’s metropolis, as mentioned by Mario Robitaille, vice-president of the organizing committee.

“A dozen athletes told me these were the best World Master Weightlifting Championship they’ve ever been to. We put together a great championship, and we have much to be proud of. Yves Carignan (President of the organizing committee) and I are also competing, so with our experience, we know what it takes to keep the athletes happy. We are very proud, and we delivered on our promises.”

Families and friends of the competitors from all around the world could follow the competition live on two Internet platforms with a live medal count. This World Masters technological first was made possible thanks to the work of Julien Carignan, Yves Carignan’s son.

Canada's men's and women's teams finished second in the team standings.

Highest Honours to Kristi Brewer and Marcel Perron

American Kristi Brewer and Quebecois Marcel Perron were crowned the weightlifters with the best balanced scorecard across all age and weight categories.

Mario Robitaille was delighted by Perron’s victory, which represents more than a simple sporting result.

Marcel Perron and Mario Robitaille

“It’s really something to win this is Montreal! This was expected from him. He suffered a CVA three years ago, and we set up a fundraising campaign to get him special treatments. He was back on his feet quickly, but in January 2018, we didn’t know if he would be able to compete. He took about two months off before getting back in the gym.”

These World Championships closed the loop opened 40 years ago by Yves Carignan when he competed at the Montreal Olympic Games.

The next World Masters Weightlifting Championship will be held in Germany.

2019 PAN AMERICAN MASTERS WEIGHTLIFTING CHAMPIONSHIPS

IMPRESSIONS FROM THE CANADIAN PRESIDENT AND NATIONAL CHAIR

MOVE OVER “HOT IN CLEVELAND” CAUSE ITS “HOT IN ORLANDO”

First Day, Thursday

Temperatures in Orlando have surpassed 30 degrees and the Canadians are starting to heat up the platform at the 2019 Pan American Masters. Torching the wood began with Doug Sinclair’s 58 kg Snatch on his second attempt. It got a bit scary with his first 75 kg Clean and Jerk missed, but snapped it up on his second attempt and went on to move that up again to 78 kg ending up with an impressive 136 total in the M75/81 category and securing a very nice SMF of 383.591 and a Gold.

Racking up another high SMF (403.02) was Terry Hadlow in the M60/89 category with a Snatch of 95 and Clean and Jerk of 121, totalling out with 216 kg and a Gold. Yves Carignan skipped supper and breakfast, well he must have, since he weighed in the lighter category of M65/67; or is he reserving that M65/73 spot for me when I return to the competitive platform. Yves did very well with 62 kg Snatch and 81 kg Clean and Jerk. Another nice SMF for Yves with 327.615.

Judy Quinn was taking no nonsense with her three successful Snatches, closing with 31 and then ensuring her 41 kg Clean and Jerk in her third a;empt. In the W70/71 she won the Gold with an SMF of 162.935. Not far behind on the SMF point system was another Gold medalist, Jill Miller, in the W65/64 with liMs of 28 and 38. Where these two athletes are going to keep all their awards – start building that new trophy room!!

PAN AM MASTERS WEIGHTLIFTING

Canadians, Second Day, Friday

A POWERFUL STORM BLEW IN…

…and shook some platforms on Friday. Isabelle Gauthier captured a Gold in the W45/59 with a 70 Snatch and 88 kg CJ, just missing her 91, for an impressive total of 158 (273.044 SMF). And our very own Manon Poulin broke the Pan Am Masters Snatch Record in the W55/55 on her third attempt with 47 kg. With her 54 kg Clean and Jerk she totalled 101 and SMF of 204.877.

Two of our male athletes broke the 300 SMF with Silver medal awards: Thomas Seniuk (116 and 137; 253 and SMF of 364.15. Martin Walt just stepped over that marker with 95 and 116 and SMF of 306.118. Martin did not miss any of his lifts and so far, our only 6 for 6 athlete. PAN AM MASTERS WEIGHTLIFTING

Canadians, Third day, Saturday

“GOLD ON THE CEILING” (the Black Keys) GOLD ON THE PLATFORM

I often listen to a group called The Black Keys and this particular song just came to mind as I thought of how well our Canadians were doing at the Pan Am Masters Weightlifting. Terry Hadlow and Doug Sinclair rose in their ranks to become Best Lifters in their age categories. I am sure there are others, but I humbly spread what I am picking up on social media. Mens Golds today included Steven Bishop, John Florento and Craig Gilbert. Craig impressively made all his Clean and Jerk attempts closing with 153. Although no Gold medals today for the Women, their performances as new international athletes were indeed gold to me. Pamela Davidson, Helen Lamarre and Brandi McDonald…you struggled and you were rewarded by stepping onto that podium and making us proud up in “We the North.”

PAN AM MASTERS WEIGHTLIFTING

Canadians, last day, Sunday

Wrapping up the last day of this international event were the youngest groups of international athletes, the 35-39-year-old weightlifters. And I bet they just love being called the youngest group! Some were former or even current Senior lifters and others, just recently joining our membership in the Canadian Masters Weightlifting Federation; some with international competitive experience and others just beginning their journey. To all our athletes in this age category, a job well done. The Men held their own, with Dave Spur surging ahead to capture his Gold with 115/155/270/342.179. The Women kept pace with Amanda Whiting securing her Silver with 67/92/159/218.859.

Here are the names of our athletes who broke Pan Am Masters Records: Sue Spencer, Manon Poulin, Isabelle Gauthier, Terry Hadlow and Steve Bishop. Congratulations!!!

Well the Sun has set on Sunday and from what I have seen and heard on social media, the Canadians were both impressive on the platform and impressed with the organizing host spearheaded by the Michael Cohen, Les Simonton, Corinne Grotenhuis and with the webmaster prowess of Sheryl Cohen. I am sure there are many others from officials, and volunteers who often go unmentioned. But my little eyes and ears at the event tell me that a fantastic job was done by each and everyone involved. Bravo!

I wish our Canadian athletes a safe trip home and for those remaining behind, enjoy the beautiful weather and our American friends. Our summer has yet to arrive. Also check your mailboxes for a little surprise.

The Universe is Expanding / L’UNIVERS GRANDIT ET NOUS AUSSI!

THE UNIVERSE IS EXPANDING AND SO ARE WE!

At our 2019 Annual General Meeting, (the 2019 AGM minutes are attached) the assembled members gave overwhelming approval to have our Canadian Masters Weightlifting Federation incorporated with the Government of Canada as a not-for-profit sports organization. On May 10 th our Board gave its unanimous support to proceed with this incorporation, which was officially concluded on May 15, 2019. This has been long overdue. Our position as a legal entity representing Masters Weightlifters in Canada, a position we simply assumed all these years, is official by this document. It preserves our name, protects our volunteers and officials, provides opportunities for external funding, safeguards our investments from lingering in private PayPal and Stripe accounts of elected officials, and affords us the dignity and respect of being a sports federation similar to our counterparts provincially and the CWFHC nationally. Although we are not and cannot be legally considered a National Sports Organization (only one NSO per sport is allowed by legislation under which Sports Canada operates) we will be more favourably regarded by the Ministry of Science and Sport.

I have expanded the Board’s Advisory Committee by inviting volunteer Representatives from each of our Western Provinces, who now join representatives from Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces in sharing their regional successes, stories, concerns and ideas with our Board and with the general membership. This is the group who advises me on issues of national concern to Masters weightlifters in Canada. Daniel Paré continues to serve as our Vice-President, and Jodi Podolas as Secretary-Treasurer. Mario Robitaille and Heidi Schraft have agreed to continue serving as appointed Board members.

Our membership has also expanded, no doubt due to two upcoming International Events, the World Masters and the Pan Am Masters, in Canada and the USA respectively. Forty-four Canadians are registered for the Pan Americans and 158 for the World Masters. Exciting and positively busy times lie ahead for our Office of the National Chair.

I am pleased to remain on as your President for this term and appreciate the support many of you have given to me during the interim year I served as your unexpected President.

M Gomes

 

L’UNIVERS GRANDIT ET NOUS AUSSI!

À notre Assemblée Générale Annuelle 2019, (le procès-verbal de l’AGA 2019 est inclus) les membres présents ont approuvé de façon écrasante d’avoir le Fédération canadienne d’haltérophilie Maîtres incorporée auprès du Gouvernement du Canada et tant qu’organisation de sports à but non lucratif. Le 10 mai notre Conseil a donné son support unanime de procéder à l’incorporation, qui a été officiellement conclue le 15 mai 2019. Ceci avait été attendu depuis longtemps. Notre position en tant qu’entité légale représentant les haltérophiles Maîtres au Canada, une position que nous avions simplement assumée pendant toutes ces années, est officielle de par ce document. Il préserve notre nom, protège nos arbitres et bénévoles, fourni des opportunités de financement, sauvegarde nos investissements en prévenant d’utiliser les comptes privés PayPal et Stripe de nos représentants élus, et nous offre la dignité et le respect d’être une fédération sportive semblable à nos homologues provinciaux et à la CWFHC au niveau national. Bien que nous ne sommes pas et nous ne pouvons être légalement considéré en tant qu’Organisme national de sport (seulement un ONS par sport est permis par la loi sous laquelle Sport Canada opère) nous serons plus favorablement considérés par le Ministère des Sciences et des Sports.

J’ai aussi agrandi le Comité consultatif de notre Conseil en invitant des représentants bénévoles de chacune de nos provinces de l’Ouest, qui se joignent maintenant à nos représentants de l’Ontario, du Québec et des provinces atlantiques à partager les succès régionaux, les histoires, les inquiétudes et les idées avec notre Conseil et avec les membres en général. C’est le groupe qui me conseille sur les questions d’intérêt national pour les haltérophiles Maîtres au Canada. Daniel Paré continue à servir en tant que Vice-Président, et Jodi Podolas en tant que Secrétaire-Trésorière. Mario Robitaille et Heidi Schraft sont d’accord de continuer de servir en tant que membres nommés du Conseil.

Le nombre de nos membres a aussi augmenté, sans doute dû à deux futures compétitions internationales, les championnats du monde et panaméricains Maîtres, au Canada et aux États-Unis respectivement. Quarante-quatre canadiens sont inscrits pour les championnats panaméricains et 158 pour les championnats du monde. Une période excitante et positivement occupée est à l’horizon pour le bureau du Président national.

Je suis satisfait de demeurer votre Président pour ce terme et j’apprécie le support que plusieurs d’entre vous m’avez donné durant l’année par intérim que j’ai passée en tant que votre président inattendu.
