Mother­well lads and train­ing part­ners Cal­lum Crozier and Jonathon Lenzi made Great Bri­tain proud in the IPF World Bench Press Cham­pi­onships in Fin­land. Cal­lum rep­re­sented GB last year in Texas with a 192.5kg Bench Press at just 21. This year he smashed his best throw­ing up 207.5kg to take the Bronze medal in the Ju­nior 105kg cat­e­gory. In do­ing so he also took the Scot­tish se­nior and Bri­tish Ju­nior Bench Press records. He will now go on to rep­re­sent the team for the full power World Clas­sic Cham­pi­onships in Canada. There he can show what he has in store for bench, squat and dead­lift records. Jonathon is no stranger to the power-lift­ing world ei­ther hav­ing brought home the gold as well as a best ju­nior lifter award at the Com­mon­wealth Pow­er­lift­ing Cham­pi­onships held in South Africa last year. This year Jonathon de­buted on the World Stage in the 93kg cat­e­gory, bench­ing a Scot­tish record of 170kg. This was de­spite hav­ing just re­cov­ered from an in­jury, show­ing he per­haps has po­ten­tial to do much more in sport. Jonathon plans to push him­self even fur­ther with hopes of com­pet­ing in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships in France this Septem­ber. Both re­turned home proud as ever hav­ing poured up to three hours of train­ing in the gym most evenings while keep­ing up full time work.
