Louise Sugden breaks Para-Powerlifting British Record To Grab Share Of Sportscover Pot

Louise, a recent Commonwealth Games Para-Powerlifting silver medallist, continued her impressive form smashing the existing record in the women’s -86kg class. Louise secured Gold with three successful lifts and registered a new record of 109kg with her final lift of the competition.

The £500 prize fund was offered by leading Sports and Leisure insurance provider, Sportscover for any lifter who broke a British record at the Ricoh Arena event.

Mercy Brown was the first to register a new record in the Women’s 90kg category with a snatch of 97kg, a Clean & Jerk of 124kg therefore registering a total of 221kg.

Emily Campbell followed soon after lifting a new record of 107kg in the snatch to replace previous holder Mercy Brown in the Women’s 90+ category.
