Pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onships sched­uled for Saturday in Sum­mer­side

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The P.E.I. Powerlifting and Bench Press Cham­pi­onships take place Saturday at Credit Union Place in Sum­mer­side.

The first powerlifting meet on P.E.I. was held 20 years ago and while in­ter­est in the sport has had its ups and downs, Saturday’s meet is to be the largest ever on the Is­land with the ex­cep­tion of when P.E.I. hosted na­tion­als.

More than 60 lifters from across the Mar­itimes and On­tario will be com­pet­ing in a meet where na­tional records can be set and lifters can qual­ify for re­gional or na­tional com­pe­ti­tions.

Meet di­rec­tors John MacDon­ald and Justin Smith ex­pect a full day of lift­ing, with com­pe­ti­tion set to be­gin at 9 a.m. and wrap­ping up in the evening.
