South West Open Powerlifting Championships 2017 update – MyGym rocked!

The guys and gals who competed in the South West Open Powerlifting Championships this weekend absolutely rocked it!! H U A H!

It was a hectic day on Saturday and the competition over-ran for the women by more than 3 hours, but spirits weren’t dashed thanks to Lauren’s Maoam stash!

The Deadlift Divas from MyGym basically dominated the women’s competition and nine of our finest strong ladies competed!

Lauren Randall took home the trophy for the U57 class with an amazing 137.5kg deadlift as her grand finale and a combined total of 270kg – It was incredible to see, and as a result, Lauren will be competing in the Nationals later this year so watch this space! Never have I seen such determination!

Fenella Powell cut down to 51kg to compete in the U52’s and walked away with 5 junior records, coming second in her weight class with a total of 235kg! It was hair flippingly good!

Well done to all you ladies for your awesome efforts, everyone smashed their previous PBs and came together to support one another – it was epic! Christie Civetta and Matt Watson made the day go smoothly and acted as an incredible force of positive energy to everyone lifting, so a huge thanks to them!

The MyGym men did phenomenally well, too. One more time, H U A H!
