World Champion

Last week our very own Mr Gray competed in the IPF World Powerlifting Championships in Minsk, Belarus. Congratulations to Mr Gray on becoming the World Champion! Find out about his experience below:

“I arrived in Belarus as part of the GB power lifting team for the ‘World Power Lifting Championships’. Belarus used to be part of the Soviet Union; Minsk is the capital of Belarus. It is a beautiful city and has a really modern feel.

I felt nervously confident about dethroning Jeffery Phillips of the USA; who was the current World Champion. On the day of the competition, I felt nervous but with the mind set of a winner. My goal is to be the best in all that I do. ‘Believe to Achieve’ which is coincidentally the Midpoint motto.

My training had been intensive and I felt strong and motivated. On that day I felt ready to take on the world and in training I had already lifted 240kg. I wanted that win and I wanted to break the existing World Record. I am David Gray and I am the new World Champion and Record holder. I did that! ”

It’s a world record 242.5kg deadlift!

Congratulations to Mr Gray. He has demonstrated that if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything that you want.
