Scottish Nationals 24th August

This years Scottish Nationals was the biggest so far with 40 entries. Held at Varsity Gym in Glasgow, the place was buzzing and there must have been 200 people there at one point. Traditionally a full power only the competition, the decision was made this year to allow single lifts and this allowed a further 8 entrants, who either did one or two lifts only.

Notable newcomers were Lisa Tobias, totalling 270Kg at 46.6Kg body weight, with 3 unofficial British records. Junior lifter Alice Pearsons, totalling 307.5Kg in the 80Kg class, with 4 unofficial British records and Junior lifter Mark MacQueen, totalling 665 at 110 and breaking 4 British records and wining the 110Kg class.

Four best lifter trophies were awarded. Best female unequipped bench went to Katie Cooke (55.5Kg M2) with 62.5Kg, which is a new British record. Best female unequipped open & masters went to Mary Anderson (M2). Mary dropped to the 70Kg class to take 4 new open British records, increasing the total record by 27.5Kg. Best open and masters male lifter went to David Crombie (82.5Kg M1) with a 625Kg total (new British record) and a big 271Kg deadlift to finish, also a British record. With only two equipped entries, the best equipped lifter went to Chris Empson with a 585 total at 82.5Kg.

Although it was a long day the competition run smoothly thanks to plenty of officials and spotters. Thanks to Mark Hourston and Michael Phillips for spotting and loading, together with staff from Varsity. Thanks to referee's Arthur Cowley (Centre), Chris Martin, Paul Rutherford & Wullie Brown. Hayley Rutherford and Tommy McGovern did an excellent job, with their refereeing debut after recently passing the exam, and thanks to Chris Martin for doing an excellent job on the desk/MC in the afternoon, allowing me a break to lift. A final thanks to Wullie Brown for organising the completion and a special mention to the staff at Varsity who really made an effort to make the day run smoothly.

The next competition in Scotland is the UK Masters, which will again be at Varsity Gym on 22nd November. This is the first time a masters competition has been organised and is attracting a lot of interest.  Its open to any BDFPA member who is a master for both single lifts, full power, unequipped and equipped. There is no qualifying requirement and any lift will count as a qualifier for 2015. Varsity is a great venue, centrally located in Glasgow, with plenty of parking, right next to a take away Pizza restaurant and supermarket.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The 4 Nations event was very close with Scotland initially ahead by 50 points with all 8 lifters totals counted, but after deleting the lowest 4 scores, as the rules stated (including one woman and up to one equipped lifter), England took it with 1561 points, Scotland in 2nd with 1375 points, Ireland in 3rd with 1221 and Wales in 4th with 1183. With each team selecting only the best lifters the standard of lifting was very high. A great effort from the Scottish team with strong lifting from everyone.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good luck to Scotlands Team for the 4 Nations this weekend: Jo Gaskin, Bernie Cunninghame, Michael Ferguson, Wullie Brown, Tom Moffat, Arthur Cowley, Martin Smith & Stephen Mullen.

British Records Updated 19th February 2013. This will be the last update until after the British Full Power in April.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

British Full Power on 6th & 7th April - flight plan:-
Saturday 6th - all Women, unequipped and equipped, plus unequipped men up to 82.5Kg.
Sunday 7th - Unequipped Men 90Kg and above plus all equipped men.
NOTE:- Should entry numbers be below 100, ALL FLIGHTS WILL BE ON THE SUNDAY, however this is probably unlikely...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Updated results now in online for the Scottish Open, see results page. Also some video added on the video page. A great competition with many new Scottish records, a few British records and some unofficial world records by Hayley Rutherford, Louise Murray, Bronwyn Taylor, Bernie Cunningham & Neil Elliot. Best lifters were:-

Louise Murray (Unequipped Open)

Michelle Brand (Equipped Open)

David Crombie (Unequipped Open)

Arthur Cowley (Unequipped Masters)

Neil Elliot (Equipped Open & Masters)

A special mention should be given to Ryan Alexander who missed best open unequiped lifter by half a point. There were some trophys left over, as a lot of competitors had already left by the presentation, so if you missed getting your trophy contact Wullie Brown and you can probably arrange to collect one next time you are passing Scotstoun Stadium. Note, as agreed at last years AGM, best lifter trophies will now be awarded to the best masters lifter at both this years British events based on the "master age multiplier" formula which gives you more points the older you get. We are also looking into doing the same for best junior lifter, although as yet, a suitable formula is not available.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

38 Lifters entered for the Scottish Open on the 27th. Weigh in is 0900 to 1030. 0900-0915 Women only, 0915-1030 all lifters. Lifting starts at 1100. Note the competition will probably go on to about 1730 due to the high entry. We are running 4 flights in 2 sessions, so you will either lift in the morning or the afternoon session:-

Morning, Flight 1 All Women, Flight 2 Men up to 75Kg

Afternoon, Flight 3 82.5 to 90Kg Men, Flight 4 Men 100Kg and above plus all equipped men

Ryan Alexander, Robert Kirkpatrick, Thomas Rushford, David Crombie, Yussef EL Sobky, Olivia Sardo, Ashley Sinclair, Tony Aitchison

SCOTTISH PUSH PULL & SINGLE LIFT COMPETITION Glasgow16th September 2012

This was the second year this event was held at Boab's Gym in Denistoun, although lasts years comp was just bench press, this year it was bench and deadlift. 5 lifters entered the full push pull event, all unequipped. In 5th place was new 75Kg lifter Peter Kirwan with a solid 257.5Kg total. 4th went to Martin Flett (110Kg M4), with a 160Kg bench for a new Scottish record and a 182.5Kg deadlift. In 3rd place was Martin Collins (90Kg Open) with a 117.5 and 230 for a 347.5Kg total. 2nd went to Pete Gaskin (125 M3) with a 160 & 235 for a 395Kg total, but way out in front was Alistair Donaldson (110 M1) with a 150 bench and 260Kg (Scottish record) deadlift for a 410Kg total, just missing a 270 final pull.

In the single lift unequipped bench, Brian Reilly (90 open) just beat Joe Cogan (100 M2) on points with a 160 bench. Brian & Joe both just missed their last lifts of 170 & 172.5 respectivly, so more to come from both in the future. 3 lifters took part in the equipped bench, with Martin Flett just beating Joe McEwan in 2nd place with a 190Kg bench which was an unofficial world record. Only Stuart Bizzarri (75 M2) lifted unequipped deadlift, but all his lifts were new Scottish records with a 190Kg final pull. In the equipped deadlift, Paul McWhinnie (82.5Kg Open) pulled 207.5Kg for second place, with George Reilly (90 M4) taking first with an impressive 245Kg pull for an unofficial world record.

Thanks to Bob, Frank and Wullie for putting the competition on.

SCOTTISH NATIONALS Glasgow 19th August

There was some excellent lifting at this years Scottish Nationals, despite a lower than normal turnout of only 12 lifters. Nine men competed in the unequipped class, with Phil Robertson taking best lifter with 230, 170 & 285 lifts for a 665Kg total at 90Kg bodyweight. In second place was new Junior lifter Ryan Alexander with an impressive total of 510Kg at 75Kg. In third place was Adrian Kennedy with 502.5Kg at 82.5Kg, with a 182.5Kg squat for a junior Scottish record. Fourth went to another new lifter, Damien Harrier, who totalled 530Kg at 100Kg, impressive considering he is a T2 lifter. All Damien's lifts were British records, with his 240Kg deadlift an unofficial European record. Unfortunately, as Damien is a new lifter, he is not eligible for British records until he has been a member for 3 months, so these lifts don't count, but this rule is not enforced for our divisional records, so he will get these lifts as Scottish records. Also of note, M3 lifter Elliot Fraser with a 475 total at 90 for 4 Scottish records.

Only 2 lifters competed in equipped, Bernard McGurk and Tommy Moffat. Bernard took best lifter with a 605Kg total at 75Kg bodyweight, with a big 255 dead to finish for a new Scottish record. Tommy totalled 615Kg but was taking it easy to qualify for the Worlds in Boston. Joe Cogan was the only single lift competitor and just missed a 170 unequipped bench.

In the audience, were members of the Cuban Para Olympic Powerlifting team who have been training at Glasgow City Barbell Club while preparing for the Olympics. Special thanks to Les Pilling and Pete Hudson who travelled up from the North West of England to ref. The next Scottish competition is the push pull on 16th September.

Entries for Scottish Nationals this Sunday:-

Alexander Ryan, Fraser Elliot, Damien Harrier, Thom Moffat, Pete Gaskin, Jo Gaskin, Bernard McGurk, Stuart Bizzari, Thomas Connarty, Adrian Kennedy, Adam Sauberlich, Phil Roberts, Joe Coogan, David Giles.
