PTC redemption #2 3 lift comp - summary

The number of entrants who were there to compete this year surpassed last years by nearly double.
This is a good sign for powerlifting and strength sports as a whole.
Especially with alot of the entrants being as young as 14 years old.

Deadlifts ranging from 40kg to 285kg
Bench from 30kg to 195kg
Squats from 40kg to 240kg.
Was a great novice comp to get people into the sport and motivate them to train.

The highlights for myself of the day were:
- Vanessa 16 year old with lifts and maturity beyond her years. One to watch out for in the years to come.
- Young matty who just turned 14 and going 97.5/50/100 plenty of promise in this youngster from the gym
- Big man RAY. Ever so silent and humble. Giving it his all on the dead-lift geez what a big 285kg pull that was got everybody off their feet. Not to mention a 195kg bench.

The full results and some videos can be found here

Till next comp see you then.
Remember u dont get stronger by  watching. So get into it and have a go no matter what level your training is at.
