Athlete of the MonthDecember

Amy Nicholls

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

Amy joined us 3 years ago, when she moved to Brisbane from Rockhampton. She is studying Dietetics and is usually part of our evening Crew.

Amy has come a long way in her training during her time with us – improving her gymnastics, lifting and fitness overall. She particularly loves a barbell.

Amy has been chasing a 60kg snatch for quite some time. She snatched 57.5kg in March 2019 and has been trying for 60kg ever since. We’ve watched her attempt it many times – knowing that she was always disappointed when she missed, but never defeated. And on 11 December, her determination paid off!

A great lesson in perseverance for all of us. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!

Well done, Amy. We’re proud of you!
