Eger Powerlifting World Cup 2017

Heading off to Budapest during the first week of May is the Welsh Para Powerlifting team, competing in the Eger World Cup championships.

Nerys Pearce competing on Friday 5th May with team mate Nathan Stephens. Nerys will compete in the 69kg category and Nathan in the 72kg class. Sean Gaffney will compete on Sunday 7th May in the 107+kg category.

All three lifters are aiming to gain ranking positions to qualify for the Commonwealth Games April 2017.

Simon Roach, Sports Manager said “Although the NGB has only recently incorporated Powerlifting into its pathway and competition structure, the team has already made excellent progress with both Nerys and Sean gaining good ranked positions at the Dubai World Cup, February 2017. The event at Eger will be Nathan’s first International Powerlifting competing, however he is no stranger to elite level sport and has an outstanding track record in Athletics.  The team has been training well and are aiming to make personal bests at Eger”

“Weightlifting Wales wishes them all Good Luck”
