Club Achievements

The club has grown considerably over the 3 years it's been running and it continues to develop with new equipment and an expanding membership. Over the last year, our training space has been refurbished into an optimum setting for weightlifting, with new equipment such as jerk blocks and a power bar. A number of the club's members have successfully entered Olympic weightlifting competitions, in particular Bethany Parker, who has qualified for British U23 Championships and won gold colours for high performance at this years sports awards. Strength Sport's involvement with strongman has advanced, with the first student to enter England's Strongest Man over the summer 2016 being a former member of the club.
