TEENAGED weightlifting sensation Rebekah Tiler was crowned European Youth
Champion after a record-breaking performance in Lithuania on Saturday.



The 14-year-old from Denholme in Yorkshire set new European Under-15 records in both the snatch and clean and jerk as she secured three gold medals in
the over 63kg category at the championships in Klaipeda.

Mercy Brown won two bronze medals in the Under-17 69kg+ category, for the clean and jerk and total. She lifted 83kg in the snatch and 104kg in the clean and jerk.


It has been a great week for the sport," said British Weight Lifting Chief
Executive Ashley Metcalfe. "Rebekah is a real talent, but as we have seen we
have other young athletes who are doing really well and coming home with
medals.



"It's great to see that we are producing the goods, and already showing our
funding partners that their investment in weightlifting is money well
spent."
