Sydney’s Hailee Jarrett has to pinch herself sometimes, just to make sure everything she’s experienced in weightlifting in 2015 has actually happened.

After travelling to Peru to compete in the World Youth Weightlifting Championships, the Sydney 15-year-old travelled to Poland to contest the World Junior Championships.

And next month she’ll be part of a 5-strong Australian team heading to Samoa to compete in the Commonwealth Youth Championships.

Joining Jarrett will be 58kg lifter, Yasmin Carter, and Harrison Gaffney (56kg), Samuel Reichler (69kg) and Blake Shadbolt (95kg).

“I would love to hit a 60/75 in Samoa,” Jarrett said.

“If it happens, it happens. But I’ll just be grateful to be there.

“I have no idea what to expect. I expect there will be a lot of good lifters, even just from the Australian team.”

Jarrett will also be determined to use the event to bounce back from the disappointment of a no-lift result in Poland, an outcome she’s still struggling to comprehend.

“I was pretty shocked and disappointed in myself, but I was pretty happy that I got there and got to compete,” she said.

“It took a bit to comprehend what had happened, I was quite shocked. I tried not to show what I was feeling.

“Looking back on it now, I warmed up pretty well, but I think it was fatigue.”

What is certain is that 2015 has whet Hailee Jarrett’s appetite for big event weightlifting.

“I love it, I absolutely love it,” she said.

“Where do I want to be when I’m 20? I’d love to do the Commonwealth’s in 2018, the 2020 Olympics, I just want to get as much out of this sport as I can.”

The Commonwealth Youth Games will run from September 5 to 11.
