Paralympics GB have today announced the squad that will be representing Great Britain in the Powerlifting and we are pleased to at last be able to tell everyone that a founding member of Suffolk Spartans Zoe Newson has been offered a place at London 2012 by the International Paralympic Committee.  Not only has she managed this but currently she is ranked 4th in the World in her weight class, the highest ranking of any of the GB Powerlifters announced today.  Zoe was thrilled and has today been in London to be a part of the team announcement before she returns home and starts the serious business of training for this the biggest of tests.  We wish her all the best for the competition and will be helping her prepare as well as taking as many of the club to the Excel Arena on 30th August to support her.
