Today saw both Ben and Joe compete in the GBPF British Bench Press competition in Northumberland. A long trip was well worth it in the end as both made personal best perfromances and both secured the title of British Champion in their respective classes.
Ben competing in the under 74kg class received nothing but white lights from the referrees and finished with a lift of 105kg. Joe was competing in the under 59kg class and while he was unfortunate to have his 2nd lift disallowed on a 2 to 1 decision he still successfully lifted 65kg which was a personal best.
Both had worked hard for this competition and it showed as they both secured the British Champion title.
