Honiton weight lifter Chris Morgan has successfully defended his British Deadlift Championship titles.

He was lifting in the British Single Event Championships, held in Stafford in England and made lifts of 220 kilo’s followed by 250 Kilo’s and then 260 kilo’s to win British titles in Masters 1 (40+), Open (All Age Groups) and also the Overall Best Lifter Award.

Morgan said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have won my fifth best lifter title and its also my 17th British Championship title to date in my career. I’m now looking forward to representing England and Great Britain my eleventh World Championship final.”

He continued: “The competition was the biggest ever organised in the history of the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association with a total of 400 lifters. It’s wonderful to see the interest in drug free lifting growing each and every year within the BDFPA.”

The World Single Event Championships are being held from June 12 to June 14 at Telford Innovation Campus (Telford) of Wolverhampton University.
