Swindon powerlifter David Wozniak defied illness to win first place at the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association National Single Lifts Championship.

Despite catching a virus just days before the competition which took place in Bedfordshire, Wozniak refused to let the illness prevent him from competing in the Equipped Benchpress.

On the day itself Wozniak lifted 210kg, a personal best by 2.5kg, as he scooped top spot in his age and bodyweight category.

The lift also gave him the necessary qualifications to compete in the international competitions.

Wozniak said: “I’m pleased with the results as I was uncertain whether I could perform on a day as I was still not well.”
