Powerlifting Club

A good start to the year

Outstanding results today were seen at the IPC Powerlifting Championships in Cardiff.  Matt competing in only his second ever competition finished the day with 71kg an improvement of 6kg in just 6 months. Credit must go to the hard work he has put in over this time to make such an increase and as he now looks to prepare for the British in June we will be hoping for a similar improvement.

Also lifting from Suffolk Spartans was Zoe who recently was pushed down to 7th in the world rankings she responded well opening and on a personal best performance of 86kg she increased this to 88kg during the competition which should now secure her 5th place in the world rankings. As we now enter the final month of qualification for London 2012 this position will hopefully see Zoe at the games although she will be travelling to Dubai at the end of February to see if she can improve on this lift and guarantee her place at London. Both lifts increased the European Junior Record which Zoe already held and her opening lift was enough to give her the honour of now being the best British Woman currently competing.
