Local Power

Three local powerlifters - competing out of Power Fitness FT LLC in East Liverpool - took part Sunday in the 2018 USA Powerlifting Pittsburgh Barbell Spring Open, and each came away with a first place finish, including one claiming the title of best overall lifter. The event was held at the Pittsburgh Barbell Club in Bridgeville, Pa. Noah Roberts (from left) won the Open 93 kilos competition (Squat 446, Bench 303, Dead Lift 540), Jeff Hanselman was the champion of the Open 83 kilos (Squat 540, Bench 331, Dead Lift 639), and Craig Miladin took first in the Masters A 93 kilos category (Squat 345, Bench 263, Dead Lift 400).
