Name, Age, Weightclass?
My name is Andréanne Messier, I am 18 years old and my weightclass is 69kg.
I am training in St-Hyacinthe ( La Machine Rouge ) and the name of my coach is Yvan Darsigny
Annie Moniqui (Ex Olympian weightlifter at the 2012 games in London) invited me to go try it out when I was 12 years old and taking a break from tumbling and double-mini trampoline due to injuries, that was 6 years ago and I never went back to the tumbling floor.
I started gymnastics at the age of 5 and switched to Tumbling and double-mini trampoline aroud the age of 8 until I was 12. I always loved sports and I also played baseball and soccer.
My first competion was the 37th Provincial school Championships in Brossard Québec on April 14th 2012. I reached the podium coming in 3rd with 45kg and 57kg for a 102gk total with a body weight of 47.95kg
My biggest accomplishment in weightlifting is definetly my results at this year’s World Junior Championships in Tokyo. I went 6/6 and lifted 90kg and 112kg for a 202kg total which is 6kg above my best ever registered total. I am also proud of my several appearances in Eastern Canada Tumbling Championships.
I work in a breakfeast place in the summertime and I go to Cégep de St-Hyacinthe during the school year.
Like any high ranked athlete, my ultimate goal is to get to the Olympics, if not it’s to reach my full potential and give it all I’ve got making sure I have no regrets when I stop competing.
To perform in school while training so many hours a week is not an easy task but I manage a tight schedule and can still achieve good academic results.
Beleive in yourself and do not let anybody tell you that you won’t make it. If you believe, get your head down, charge and don’t let anybody or anything stop you.
