Alison Manning


Alison has participated in a wide variety of sports ranging from figure skating and swimming to rock climbing and scuba diving. She started CrossFit in 2017 and quickly fell in love with the barbell. Shortly after, she made the switch to Olympic Weightlifting and now trains with Godspeed Weightlifting Club in Perth. As her interest in the sport of weightlifting has grown, so too has her desire to contribute to the organization.
