Spartans competing everywhere

The IPC Invitational was held at Folkestone today and the Spartans had Matt B, Rob and Zoe all take part.  Matt had a better day and demonstrated his hard work in the gym with a final lift of 75kg.  Robert also managed to improve his personal best to 108kg.  Zoe competed in the 41kg class lifting an impressive 91kg which set a new British Record at the lower body weight class.


Also in action today was Joe at the Special Olympics regional competition in Scotland. He performed well and finished with a squat of 85kg, bench press of 77.5kg and a deadlift of 100kg.  This shows a continued improvement by Joe as he looks to break records and hopefully be selected for the World Special Olympic Championships.

New Funding

Suffolk Spartans have recently received funding from the Comic Relief Fund via the Suffolk Community Foundation.  This funding has been vital in ensuring the club can continue running for the next year as well as enabling us to run our annual competition this summer and purchase additional equipment that means we can better support those at the club to continue to make the improvements we have seen many make and continue with progress at competitions as well.  As a club we are incredibly pleased to have been given this award and are grateful the club will continue running for at least the next year.
