First published in News

MORE than 120 of the country’s top powerlifters pumped iron at the British Finals.

Competitors descended on Eastbourne Sports Park in Cross Levels Way at the weekend to battle it out for the national title.

Lifting up to three times their own body weight, the muscle men competed in three disciplines – squat, bench press and deadlift.

As well as the various competitions at different weights, there was entertainment across the weekend.

The special guest, flown in especially, was American Tiny Meeker, who holds the world record for bench pressing the heaviest weight ever, 500kg.
