GB powerlifters head to Greece for European Championships




Britain is taking a squad of 13 powerlifters to the European Powerifting Championships in Kavala, Greece.

Paralympians Julie Salmon, Natalie Blake and Jason Irving will be joined in the squad by Adam Alderman, who has just progressed to the seniors and top junior Ali Jawad as well as newcomers Marvin Douglas, Denis Bulford and Daniel Steward.

GB team head coach Jon Amos said this event, as well as last week’s Powerlifting National Championships, which took place in Stoke Mandeville, is an opportunity for Britain’s lifters to prove their form ahead of Beijing.

He added: “We’re looking for them to set down the standard and get some good results towards Paralympic rankings.

“We’re running the development squad alongside the elite squad for this event and using it as a development opportunity for them. For the elite squad however this is a key event and they have from now till January to prove themselves for Beijing.”

The full British squad for the event is: Julie Salmon (Pontypridd), Natalie Blake (Newark, Notts), Jackie Wagstaff (Manchester), Louise Iontton (Bradford), Jason Irving (lives in USA, originally from Manchester), Olivia Hyman (Bath), Gary Clarke (Yeovil, Somerset), Daniel Steward (Bicester, Oxfordshire), Ali Jawad (Tottenham, London), Denis Bulford (Edenbridge, Kent), Chris Rattenbury (Milton Keynes), Marvin Douglas (Milton Keynes), Adam Alderman (Halstead, Essex).
