Fitness instructor Luke Wilson wins bronze for GB at International Powerlifting Federation World Men’s Classic Championships
Team Bath Health & Fitness Instructor Luke Wilson won a brilliant bronze medal when he competed in the International Powerlifting Federation World Men’s Classic Championships in Halmstad, Sweden.
Luke’s best lift of 260kg in the squat was only bettered by two other competitors in the U23 -83kg weight division, Italy’s Mazzucchielli Edoard and Adam Jansson of Canada who went on to place first and second overall.
He was sixth in both the bench lift and deadlift, with clearances of 162.5kg and 275kg, for a combined total of 697.5kg, which meant he finished a fantastic fifth overall.
