Getting to Know The Commonwealth Powerlifters

The XX Commonwealth Games will be staging both Men and Women’s Powerlifting on Saturday 2nd August at the Clyde Auditorium. Both women’s groups (Lightweight, up to 61kg/Heavyweight from 61.1kg) start at 10am. The men’s Lightweight (up to 72kg) starts at 2pm with the Heavyweight (from 72.1kg) rounding off the evening at 6pm. 

Ahead of this we thought we would have a quick look at the home nation athletes involved.

You can find our guide to understanding Powerlifting here.

The best of luck to all the athletes involved. Go follow them on twitter and show your support.
