Outstanding Improvement for Joe Strike

November 23rd, 2013 | Posted by admin in Events | News | Press Releases | Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Outstanding Improvement for Joe Strike)

Today took to the platform at the regional Special Olympics Championships in Bradford.  He produced a stella performance once again and received 9 good lifts and finished with a squat of 85kg a bench press of 75kg and a deadlift of 87.5kg.  This gave Joe a total on the day of 247.kg and was a tremendous increase of 17.5kg on his performance at the British Unequipped Championships just a month ago. 

We can see that Joe has been training and working really hard and this is really showing in his performance at competitions and such outstanding increases are really justified and we hope they will continue.

Olympic Challenge

November 15th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Olympic Challenge)

Sarah and Ellie are attempting to complete 114 Olympic Sports between London and Rio to see if this can be done. 

While Powerlifting officially counts as a Paralympic sport they came to join Suffolk Spartans to attempt this as a bonus event and we were happy to welcome them.

We wish them both all the success in the world in this massive challenge and hope they’ll come back and join us once they have time as they really involved themselves in the club atmosphere which is really a special part of the club.
