Highlights on the 2 French bastions
After a year 2010 disrupted by a serious thigh injury, Vencelas took several months of rest in 2011 in order to ensure his full recovery.
His pain has gone by now and he recently returned to intensive training.
At the 2011 World weightlifting Championships to be held in Paris, France he will perform at best and represent his country. As his teammates, he will aim to obtain quotas for the London 2012 Olympic Games. By then he hopes getting on the Olympic podium again.
Encouraged by his latest results; a bronze medal in Total at the European Championships held in Kazan (RUS), Benjamin has worked hard to be part of the World Championships and lift in front of the French audience.
He knows that the competition will be tough and therefore he will invest all his resources to be among the bests in his bodyweight category.
Of course, just as Vencelas he aims to obtain the Olympic quotas, but if the opportunity for an individual performance arises, he will definitely go for it.
