WEIGHTLIFTING: Watson stars as England take crown
8:30am Saturday 18th January 2014 in Sport
DIDCOT international Ben Watson helped England to victory at the annual Tri-Nations Tournament, held at Bergen in Norway.
The St Birinus Club member won the senior section of the tournament as England secured a narrow tournament victory over Norway and Sweden.
In the snatch, Watson lifted 145kg, which he followed with a lift of 175kg – just one kilogram less than his own British record – in the clean and jerk to give a total of 320kg.
Watson will have his first opportunity to qualify for the Commonwealth Games next month at the English Championships in Warley, West Midlands.
