March powerlifter Louise Fox retained her British Power Lifting Dead-Lift title for the third time at Woodbridge.

This year Fox also entered the Squat Lift and Bench Press events and her recorded 100 kg in the squat was easily the best of competing women in her under 55.5 kg bodyweight category, as also was her winning lift of 70 kgs in the bench-press event.

Louise’s favourite lift is the Dead-Lift and she produced a great effort of 157.5 kg to give her a clean sweep of all three categories. This also made her best overall female in all bodyweight classes – lifting well above entrants competing in heavier bodyweight classes.

Her next competition is at Bournemouth at the end of March with her British Full Power Title at stake.

She is hopeful of finding sponsorship so that she can defend her World Title to be held in Michigan State in late June.
