A team of lakecity powerlifters attended the Northern Power Wars in Prince George last Saturday.
Blair Fisher, 56, who is a veteran of the sport, participated in the competition with Bobbie-Jo Macnair, who has been training for three months, and Tyson Delay, who has one month training under his belt.
Fisher competed in the push pull and got a 440-pound bench press and a 639-pound deadlift, which proved to be a personal best for Fisher in the deadlift.
For his efforts, Fisher claimed first place and was awarded the best lifter for the meet in his class.
Macnair, 25, also competed in push pull events and completed a 143-pound bench press and a 303-pound deadlift to finish in first place and earn her best lifter for her class.
Delay, 22, meanwhile, completed a full meet including squat, push and pull and received a bronze medal for his squat of 319 pounds, bench press of 225.5 pounds and a 403-pound deadlift.
Fisher said the team did well and he is extremely proud of the effort they put in to prepare for the meet.
“With continued training and dedication they both have bright futures in the sport,” he said.
Fisher added he would like to thank his training partner, Curtis Mcintee, who has attended four meets with him as his handler.
