Scarlett Portues qualified for the Ladies British Championships in the 72kg weight class, she will join Kim Cowell and Steevi Pugh, also of FFPL, on the national platform in Dover in July. She achieved competition PBs in every lift including a NWPL squat record with 140.5kg squat. She benched 67.5kg & deadlifted 145kg.
Jon Wilkinson took to the platform for his second full power competition and achieved comp PBs across the board. He put up a 182.5kg squat, his third of 187.5kg having been disqualified on a technical error. Jon finished with a 120kg bench and an all time PB 235kg deadlift. He finished 3rd however had totalled exactly the same as the 1st and 2nd place lifters with placing coming down to bodyweight and order of flights, a close call indeed.
The entire FFPL crew pitched in hugely with the set up, platform duties, running the table, clean up & keeping Kim Cowell sane.
A special mention to Stu Lorne who worked he platform for the entirety of Sunday and Clare Patterson who was present for the entire weekend pitching in and being a super star!
