GLOBAL fasteners business TR Fastenings is throwing its support behind a member of staff making a name for herself in powerlifting.

Anjanita Baker has worked at TR in Uckfield for 18 years, now on web development.

Her interest in fitness and weight training began in 2011 when she joined Train Strong Bootcamp, and by 2017 she started competing in British strong woman events which involved truck pulls and atlas stone lifting.

In late 2017, Anjie decided to switch sports and try powerlifting which involves three disciplines: the squat, the bench press and the dead lift.

In January she joined the Amateur British Powerlifting Union and secured three world records in the Masters event in the 40-45 age group, 67.5kg class.
