Craig Williamson Open Weightlifting Meet
Date: November 12, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Superior CrossFit, 712 Vickers St N, Thunder Bay, ON P7C 4A8

This weightlifting competition is dedicated to the late Craig Williamson. Born in Port Arthur in 1968, Craig was a founding member of Thunder Bay Giants Weightlifting Club and NCCP level II coach. He was also employed as a Child and Youth Worker of the Children’s Aid Society of Thunder Bay.

Craig’s club was the only weightlifting club in Thunder Bay until 2009, when he suddenly passed away in his sleep due to complications from diabetes at the young age of 41. He was well organized and very up to date with the Ontario Weightlifting Association (OWA). His hours spent at the gym and at competitions was some of the happiest of his life.

Craig was so proud of all of the accomplishments of his athletes and teammates, as he had a sincere and deep concern for all of them. Craig Williamson may have passed on, but the new generation of weightlifters is keen on honouring Craig by continuing with his club name.

Guests and athletes from Manitoba and across Ontario are invited to this event.
