Lifters & Officials at the 2024 British Power & Southern Shield

A few words from Steve Gardner:

What a day we have had, a long day with 29 lifters hitting the platform to compete in the British Powerlifting Championships followed by the Southern Shield competition at Billericay in Essex today. First of all big thanks go to Glenn Branch and all of his support team at Bionic Branch for hosting such a wonderful event, and especially to the loaders and catchers who were magnificent.

The lifting was outstanding and many record marks were broken and surpassed. We had Juniors and ladies, open division and Master lifters, ages from 16 to 70+. Really great to see so many new lifters to IAWA(uk) lifting alongside many regular and longstanding members, a truly amazing day!

Best Junior lifter – James Rutter,
Best Female lifter – Suzie Richards
