POWERLIFTING NEWS – #10263 Don Lovell

The Canadian Powerlifting Union (CPU) has not held a National Championship since 2019. It was decided this year to have three regional competitions. The Western Region Championships were held from November 13 to 15th at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

10263 Don Lovell competed in the Master’s IV Division (age 70 +) with a body weight of 64.7 kg.

Don set four National records in the Classic (non-equipped) powerlifting. Squat 107.5 kg, Bench 62.5 kg and Deadlift 165 kg and Total 335 kg. Don made 8 of 9 attempts and just missed his final lift of the day, a 175 kg Deadlift. He also set a 5th National record in Bench Press in the ‘Bench Only’ competition. A truly amazing performance!
