EUROPEAN OPEN/ SUB JUNIOR/JUNIOR/MASTER CLASSIC AND EQUIPPED BENCH PRESS CHAMPIONSHIPS, BUDAPEST

DAY SIX REPORT

Day six and the last day of these championships.  This was the day for the Open events, both men and women. 

The day started off with some phenomenal lifting from the ladies in all the sessions and weight classes.    In the 84+ class, Kate Sweatman of Great Britain, finished just outside the medals.  Gold went to Hildeberg Hugdal of Norway, silver Agnes Szabo of Hungary and bronze Maria Jensen, Denmark.

The men provided us with gripping tension right to the end.  In the first session there were so many lifters relying on their third attempt just to stay in the competition This was a very dramatic -83 kg class with no lifts from Matias Viiperi, Finland, and Raik Guenterberg, Germany.  Champions – Fredrik Myrvang, Norway, -59kg; Andreas Frasl, Austria, -66 kg; and Mads Friche, Denmark, -83 kg. 

In the -74kg and -93kg weight classes what a fantastic end to the session with Ivan Chuprynko of Ukraine and Kostiantyn Musiienko also of Ukraine winning with their first attempts.  Again, two eliminations, Tomi Viglia, Finland, and Jan Wegiera, Poland. 

The mens -105 kg, the championship won by Ralk Male of Norway with his 300 kg lift.  Volodomyr Bettiar, Ukraine and Oliver Dahlkvist, Sweden also lifting 300kg but weighing in heavier body weights.  Under and over 120 kg kept us on the edge of our seats with four 120+ lifters eliminated not having achieved a lift.  And Per Marius Hole of Norway lifted a phenomenal 365 kgs giving him the championship and best lifter title. 

What a great end to 6 days of world class classic and equipped bench press lifting.    Many thanks to our premium partners Rogue and A7 without whom these championships could never take place.   Thank you to everyone who followed our live feed and we´ll see you at the next event!
