The Dan Sachs Cup

Hi Arete Athletes,

On Saturday the 23rd February, 2019 we are hosting our first weightlifting competition for the year.  The event is open to members and non members and will be called ‘The Dan Sachs Cup’ Super Total Competition.  The event will consist of the following lifting categories:

  1. Olympic Lifting Only (Snatch and Clean and Jerk) – 9am Start
  2. Powerlifting Only (Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift) – 11am Start
  3. All 5 lifts forming a Super Total 

If you have thought about doing a weightlifting competition and been unsure, if you want to test your 1RM’s or you want to seriously post some good numbers this competition is for you.  It will be a fun and supportive day.  

With the recent sad and sudden passing of our friend Daniel Sachs we are dedicating the first lifting comp each year to him.  The male and female Super Total Winners will be awarded the The Dan Sachs Cup along with a range of other great prizes.  All categories will attract prizes but the Super Total Winners will have the most prestige attached.  We will also be raising funds for the Are U Ok? campaign and for Daniels family.  

If you would like to enter please click on the link below and register your details.  If you are not lifting it would be amazing if you could come along on the day and support us and the lifters.  Lifting will be between 9am and 2pm.


For further information please see Craig or email Craig at richard@aretecrossfit.com.au.  Please forward this to anyone you feel may want to be involved also.
