An Australian Team of 6 lifters and two officials travelled far afield to Mexico City for the 2017 Para Powerlifting World Championships.
The standard was sky high. Our top performer was Ben Wright, with 176kg placed him 11th in the tough 88kg class. Cris Ashcroft was also solid with 12th via 85kg and new find Kelly Cartwright was 15th in her class with 56kg.
This event was a building block for the next big event for Australia, the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast next April. High Performance Manager Simon Bergner & Team Leader Bill Nancarrow will be taking the Australian Team of 6 elite performers onward to podium performances.
