“The World's Strongest Sport”
Powerlifting is a strength sport, consisting of three events: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. Powerlifting resembles the sport of weightlifting, as both disciplines involve lifting heavy weights in three attempts. Your best lift in each of these three disciplines are added up at the end of the competition to give you your overall total.
I began competing in Powerlifting in 2008 and have accomplished many achievements in a short period of time.
I am currently the Auckland, National and Oceania Champion for my age and weight (Junior 82.5kg class). I have an unbeaten record in New Zealand, with an overall record of 9 wins from 10 competitions. My best total in competition being 645kg consisting of a 240kg squat, 150kg bench press and a 255kg deadlift at the Oceania Championships 2010.
To prepare for competitions I follow a strict diet and training regime to have me at the top of my weight class, constantly improving and peaking for competition.
Over the years of being an athlete I have learnt a great deal about how to get the most out of the body and mind, and I enjoy being able to pass on my knowledge and experiences to others.
