Bobbie Butters: Powerlifter aiming to break world record

UCLan powerlifter Bobbie Butters is hoping to lift her way towards a new world record.

The 25-year-old, who graudated from UClan in 2017 in Strength and Conditoning, is setting her sights on the Natonal Championships – where she will be defending her British title in York.

Bobbie already has three medals to her name while representing Team GB in Lithuania in 2018, winning silver in the squat event with 160kg. That’ the equivalent to 160 bags of sugar.

Staggering.

2016 was also a year to remember for the upcoming star, setting five British records and going top of the North West rankings.

It seems like the powerlifter is certainly one to watch for the future…
