Powerlifting is a strength sport consisting of three attempts on three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. Charlie had always enjoyed training at the gym and decided to compete when she saw the potential she had in lifting weights.
During the last school holidays, Charlie competed in the Auckland Powerlifting Association competition and won a gold medal for her category, the Sub Junior class which is from 14-18 years.
Charlie has also qualified for The NZ Powerlifting Championships which will be held in Christchurch between this September 2023. This event is expected to be the biggest event to date for a national event.
Congratulations Charlie on all your hard work and determination. We wish you all the best for the upcoming NZ Championships!
