Hot favourites Birkirkara’s Team HeavyMetal cruised to an easy victory by winning the National Powerlifting Team Championships for the second consecutive edition. The event was held last Sunday 21st February at Fitness Planet Gym in Zebbug.  The team was composed of World champion power lifter Mario Mifsud, number one ranked National Olympic weightlifter Emanuel Schembri, and monster bench presser Lawrence Ransley.

Bertu’s Gym were runners up, whilst third pace went to another novice team from Challenger Fitness Centre, both teams managing to outpoint two veteran teams from Fitness Planet and Feelgood Preluna.

Good performances worth mentioning were registered from Alexander Dolgopolyk who climbed from sixth to fourth place in the National Rankings, as well as Josmar Buhagiar who was close to breaking the National record in the dead lift on his very first power lifting meet.
