The First Ever “LGBT International Powerlifting Championships” are happening in London in July 2017 …

In July 2017 the strongest LGBT people from around the world will come together for the first ever LGBT International Powerlifting Championships. Organisers are expecting up to 60 participants from across the globe including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, United States of America and Slovenia. Athletes competing will include first time novice lifters through to World Champions and World record holders.
The Championships are the idea of Gay Games Powerlifters Chris Morgan and Dominic Patmore in response to Powerlifting not being included in Gay Games Paris 2018. Powerlifting had been part of Gay Games since it was first held in San Francisco in 1982. The new championships aim to bring LGBT lifters together from across the world to compete, socialise and discuss the future of LGBT Powerlifting.
Co-Promoter Chris Morgan, an eight time world champion in the sport, said …
“It is very important that LGBT Powerlifters are given the same opportunities as I’ve enjoyed over the last 18 years in the sport. LGBT lifters are very much a minority in the sport of Powerlifting and it is important that we are able to come together as a group to compete at least once a year. We have never had our own annual international championships, so to bring everyone together in London 2017 will be a very special occasion”.

Chris Stinson (Elite Alpha) benches 727.5 lbs. in a Single-Ply at SPF Nashville’s Main Event

Chris Stinson benched an easy 727.5lbs. this past Saturday, October 1 at SPF Nashville’s Main Event Powerlifting Championship in Goodletsville, TN. Chris started out the day with his first attempt at 688.9, it took a little work to touch, but flew right up after getting the press command! We went 727.5 on his second attempt, absolute Smoke Show! His left arm seemed to be flaring a little too early coming out of the hole, causing his right arm to outrun the lockout, but it did lockout very solid! He then went 755.1 on his third attempt, good touch, good speed coming out of the hole, but that left arm again became an issue, as he reached locking out the weight the left arm drifted back into the lip of the rack… No Lift. This 727.5 lb. bench should catapult Chris into the #1 spot, in the Current SHW Class Single Ply Master 40+ Rankings…. and to #3 Current SHW Class Single Ply Open Rankings. Congratulations Chris!!

Beau Moore New USA Powerlifting American Record Bench!

Bench nationals was as usual a great success with many great performances in all divisions. One that stands out was Big Beau! Beau went head to head with Jim Ray. Without Brad Gillingham present it was still a great show with Jim opening with 485 pounds in the masters 2 (50+). Beau opened with 501 with Jim missing that same weight. Beau went on to set a new American record with 512 to secure the win on his 2nd attempt! Beau did try 523 but missed on that attempt.
