Fox’s title

MARCH power-lifter Louise Fox retained her British Full Power Lifting under 55kg bodyweight title in Glasgow at the weekend.

Fox set a new World record with a squat lift of 107.5kg to go into an early lead. She followed this by equalling her best lift of 72.5kg in the second discipline the Bench-press to extend her advantage. In the third element - her favourite dead-lift, she recorded a mammoth 165kg to comfortably secure the title.

Her total lift of 345kg was also a world record and this total gave her the trophy for best female taking part in all weight categories.

Fox’s next competition will be the World Championships held in the USA in November, where she will be keen to retain her title.
