The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Stratford na­tive Jill MacFar­lane shows off her sil­ver medal she won at the North Amer­i­can pow­er­lift­ing cham­pi­onships held re­cently in Moose Jaw, Sask. MacFar­lane, com­pet­ing in the 47 kg Clas­sic Open di­vi­sion, had a squat of 72.5 kg, a 42.5 kg bench, 90 kg dead­lift for a to­tal of 205 kg. She was one of 60 mem­bers on Team Canada. “It cer­tainly was not my best per­for­mance in a meet, but I was proud to have con­trib­uted to our team’s per­for­mance,” said MacFar­lane. “Each coun­try got points for the num­ber of ath­letes who took home bronze, sil­ver and gold. Canada came away with a few team awards this year, in­clud­ing the fe­male clas­sic di­vi­sion, in which I was able to play a part.” It was MacFar­lane’s third ap­pear­ance at the North Amer­i­can cham­pi­onships.
