Forth Valley Weightlifters have been successful in receiving a £732 funding award from ClubSport Stirling's 'Club Development Fund' for a new Competition Set, which comprises of a bar and plate weights. The Club run and host a host of events in the weightlifting calendar and this equipment will assist in these events massively. 

The equipment was used at the recent Scottish Masters Event at MXP Stirling on Sunday 10th February where local lifters Colin Hannah and Julie Wilson won their respective classes, with Colin also claiming the Best Male Lifter Award. Well done to both lifters! 
Allen Gibson, Active Stirling Community Activation Officer, visited the event and said "It's great to see a local club receive this funding from ClubSport Stirling to improve their competition set up! The equipment looks excellent and was receiving great feedback from competitors. The equipment will be used in training as well as in the upcoming East of Scotland Open Championships as well as the Scottish Schools and Development Cup. If you would like any further information on the club please get in touch!"
