Just three weeks after winning the British Masters Equipped title, local powerlifter, Desi Scott, from Ballymoney Powerlifting Club is at it again.
Desi made it a double celebration by winning the British Masters Classic (unequipped) title again for the sixth successive year.
Lifting in the 74 kilos class he beat Henry Clark, a winner on ITV’s Challenge competition, into second place.
It is another magnificent performance by Desi, following his success back in March. He has been selected to compete for the British team at the forthcoming World Championships in Estonia and the European Championships in the Czech Republic.
Desi does his conditioning work at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre and trains at Gerry’s Gym in Coleraine, where he is coached by Gerry McLaughlin. He holds all the Classic and Equipped Northern Ireland records and several British and Commonwealth records.
