Tia-Clair Toomey represented Australia as their only female weightlifter in the 58kg class this week and finished in 14th with a very respectable total. Her final C&J was a narrow miss that would have been 5kg higher and tied the Australian record at that weight. This came only weeks after finishing in 2nd place for the second consecutive year at the CrossFit Games. Tia found weightlifting through CrossFit only a few years ago. This is nothing short of amazing.
Then some jacka$$ “sports journalist” wrote some trash (that I didn’t fully read) criticizing her performance both at the Olympics and the CrossFit Games as well. The below article is a great rebuttal to the ignorance displayed by this “writer”. What’s more amusing is if this writer took the time he would discover many current and former CrossFit athletes are competitive weightlifters both on the Olympic stage and their respective national stage. Take Morghan King (who just set the American record at the Olympics for her weight class) and Mattie Rogers (1st team alternate) for USA who both were CrossFitters prior to transitioning fully to weightlifting. Or Chad Vaughn and Mat Fraser who were weightlifters for our national team that are now CrossFit athletes. Their are plenty of others who are/were CrossFitters now in the Olympic Lifting community. The Chinese National Weightlifting Team trains using many gymnastics elements which the writer termed as “bizarre”. Functional fitness is a benefit for all manner of sports, to think otherwise is simply “bizarre”.
