Back on 11th July last year I proudly announced that my grandson, Sam, had taken the British Powerlifting Record in his category, bench pressing 230kg.
Today that record has been beaten, by 32.5kg, by (you guessed it) Sam, with a new British record for the Bench Press at 262.5kg.
As well as the British Record, he came first in his class (obviously since he broke the record) and third in the overall competition. At 20 years old, he was the youngest in the competition. Needless to say, one very proud Grandad here.
