Lead by her coach Cara Heads Slaughter from CH fitness performance, who strategically plotted a plan for success Andrea jumped out in front of the pack and never looked back.
Although the temperatures were unbearably hot in the arena, Andrea was cool as a cucumber from the platform to the top spot on the podium with a total of 127Kg, she dominated her age and weight category by 12 Kg’s with a 57Kg Snatch and 70Kg Clean and Jerk.
