Competition review: Danish Championships in Weightlifting 2013 (great CrossFit participation)

1 Comment


72 athletes had qualified for the Danish Championships in weightlifting 2013 (24 women and 48 men) which was held on Saturday 23rd February 2013.

Ditte and I both had a great competition with fine lifts and results. Ditte finished 2nd in the 69 kg. class, and I won the 75 kg class. Not bad for two crossfitters…

This year, the Danish Weightlifting Federation broke the participant record with 72 qualified participants – and it was great to see lots and lots of crossfitters having qualified and making GREAT results. 15+ active crossfitters had qualified and participated – and believe even more if we count the athletes who switched from CrossFit to pure weighlifting. GREAT FOR THE SPORT OF WEIGHTLIFTING – and for the development of CrossFit!


Here are the results from the most known persons from the Danish CrossFit scene: 

  • 105+ kg class: Thor Wowk Larsen (107/136 kg), 5th
  • 105 kg class: Troels Bjerre (122/130 kg), 3rd
