On Tuesday, some of our girls were lucky enough to attend the European Power Lifting Championships held at the Winter Gardens. The event was mainly dominated by the Women’s categories and our girls met up with the some of the ladies from “Team GB”.

The women are judged on three main lifts consisting of a Deadlift, Squat and Bench Press. Their total weight is then added up to decide their placing. Women are placed into a category depending on their age and weight. We were amazed to see a girl as young as 15 and a lady in her late fifties all lifting some pretty impressive weights!

The girls are pictured with Hannah Anderson who came fourth in her category, Emma Lane who came first in her category and Joanna Halliday who also came first in her category.

The girls were totally inspired by these women and made the most of the opportunity of meeting Team GB, asking many questions relating to training and diet.
