Congratulations to all our athletes who competed at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Samoa, a very successful competition for our sport.

Hailee Jarrett [Kings Langley, NSW] was the first Australian to win a medal at these Games when she won a bronze in the 48kg category. Jarrett lifted 69kg in the clean and jerk and 54kg in the snatch.  

Australia took another two bronze medals with Samuel Reichler [Lovely Banks, VIC] finishing third in the 69kg division in a nail-biting climax while Yasmin Carter [Bondi Junction, NSW] also finished third in the 58kg category.
