Here is 22 year old Mattie Rogers (69kg) in the warm up area at worlds 2017.
Last Warm Ups:
- 99kg Snatch / 129kg Clean & Jerk
- 104kg Snatch (got close to 107!) / 131kg Clean & Jerk
During the clean and jerks there were a lot of two minute clocks. That’s why you see her last warm up 9 minutes before her first attempt. They were just about to take another warm up attempt when she was finally called on stage.
Mattie commented that this was “One of my worst competition warm ups to date, but they can’t always go great & those are the ones that really test your mental fortitude”. So even more impressive that she still performed so well.
She originally took home bronze, but she is likely to get silver as Romela Begaj supposedly tested positive.
