European Powerlifting Championships

By April 14, 2016News

This Year the European Powerlifting Championships where  held in Weston Super Mare England on the 9th and 10th April.

Two lifters represented Malta in this competition. Dylan Callus  a 19 year old junior lifter  took part in the under 100Kg class. He placed first from the Juniors in his class with lifts of 200kg in the squat, 140kg in the bench press and 265kg in the deadlift. He attempted to lift 275.5kg in the deadlift but was a no lift due to incorrect technique.

Frances Spiteri of 67 years of age took part in the Masters 6 under 82.5kg body weight class. His results were 150.5kg in the squat which is a new European and World record in his age and weight class. Frances best deadlift was of 185kg and this was also a new European record in his age and weight class respectively.

These were very prestigious results achieved by a very promising young lifter and also an inspiration to may people advanced in there age since Spiteri is the oldest powerlifter that represents Malta during overseas competitions.
