MEET REPORT: 2nd University Powerlifting World Cup, South Africa.
In July, UCL Barbell Club sent Men’s and Women’s teams to compete and represent UCL in the 2nd University Powerlifting World Cup held in Potchefstroom, South Africa. Both teams managed to win silver overall, and many UCL lifters won individual medals. We qualified for this international competition when both the Men’s and Women’s teams came first and won gold in the British University Championships.
For many this was their first ever international competition, and for some it was only their second competition ever. The trip was a lot of fun, and we’d love to send another team to the British University Powerlifting Championships (BUCS) and the World University Cup next year. To do this, we need your help! Join UCL Barbell Club for 2017-2018 if you’d like the opportunity to experience national and international competition, and to join the strongest university club in the UK. 😉
