Today we saw the same five members of Spartans attend the British Bench Press Championships as previously swept the board back in September 2014. Zoe was up first and managed a comfortable 90kg before failing 95kg but left taking 1st place in both junior and open categories. Adam and Joe competed in the second group where Joe attempted a British record of 91kg and fell just short on this occasion finishing the competition with a lift of 82.5kg and a 1st place in the junior competition. Adam took 1st place in the open competition and a clean sweep of lifts finishing with 147.5kg.
The final group for the Spartans lifters had Riccardo and Ben take on the rest of the country. Riccardo finished with 110kg and took 1st place in the junior class while Ben finished on 120kg and a 2nd place in his weight class. A good day was had by all and plenty of trophies returned to the club.
