Weightlifting club fights women’s weightlifting misconceptions

This article came out a few weeks ago. Mother of three, Vika De Georgi, runs Newcastle’s only Olympic weightlifting club and is trying her hardest to encourage more girls and women to take up weightlifting.

I am aware that most women have to fight the myths and misconceptions surrounding women’s weightlifting. Common misconceptions include that you will become “bulky” or you will “look like a man”.

Good on Vika for promoting the wonderful sport of weightlifting to women!
