Congratulations to all participants who competed in this year's Powerlifting Event!
The 29th annual Powerlifting event was a chance for weightlifters to compete against each other and see who could win the title of UoA Powerlifting Champion.
The athletes completed their best squat, bench press and deadlift, aiming for the best total of all three lifts.
