Welsh Powerlifting Record Breaker

Massive congratulations to Head Student Libby, who recently competed in the Women’s Under 24 Under 76kg category in the British Junior and Sub Junior National Championships at the Gymshark Lifting Club, Solihull. 

As well as meeting her coach, a World Champion lifter, Libby also broke Welsh powerlifting records, adding 42.5kg to the current deadlift record, 20kg to the squat record and 2.5kg to the current bench record, making her the strongest female, in her category, in Wales of all time!

According to Libby, her best moments were watching Erholove John deadlift 250kg, competing against Naomi James of the Loughborough Powerlifting Club, meeting Lucie Lifts, and having friends and family send pictures of her TV appearance from home!  Libby hopes that she will be an inspiration to young girls starting out in the sport.
