Congratulations Coach Simone!!!

Defending Welsh and British Champion, Coach Simone entered her second Welsh Powerlifting Championship yesterday and once again surpassed even her own very high expectations with her performance.
Leading up to the competition, Simone was struggling with a shoulder injury, that has really hindered her preparation in all three lifts, but particularly her bench press. Despite this, Coach Sim prevailed! With her positive, resilient and never say die attitude that optimises the toughest Celtic Warrior, Coach Simone Not only retained her title and qualified for the British Championship with ease!!! But in the process broke her own Welsh, British and European Records in 2 of the 3 lifts.
Coach Simone’s total was also a British record even though she chose to only perform one comfortable lift on the bench press to manage her injury!



We are all sooooo proud of her! The entire Celtic community have sent messages of support and congratulations and will be fully supporting her preparations for further achievements, maybe even World records at the upcoming British Championships! She continues to inspire our Celtic warriors and Warriorettes in her coaching, performance and probably most importantly her warm caring nature!
It doesn’t go unnoticed!!


Well Done Coach Simone!
