Gay Games Ambassador Chris Morgan has become a World Champion in the sport of Powerlifting for the eighth time in his career.
He was lifting in the World Single Event Championships, held in Telford in the United Kingdom and made lifts of 200 kilo’s followed by 230 kilo’s and then 250 kilo’s to clinch the “Masters 1” title at the World Deadlift Championships.
Speaking about the competition, Chris Said,
‘I’m delighted to have won my 8th World Championship Gold Medal here in Telford.’
“The figures lifted were not amongst my best ever, but this was never going to be possible after suffering a serious back injury only 12 weeks ago. It’s been a very difficult training run to this competition and at times I didn’t think I would actually make platform”.
Chris Continued …
‘It’s a wonderful feeling to be a World Champion again! I’m now looking forward to getting back to full training and trying to improve on my Personal Best in the future”.
Chris would like to take the opportunity to highlight the opportunity for everyone to reach for their own “Personal Best” at the 10th edition of The Gay Games that we be held in Paris in August 2018.
The Gay Games are open to all and are not reserved solely for the LGBT community. Everyone – regardless of his or her sexual orientation, origin, or age – is invited to participate in this great international sporting and cultural event celebrating diversity. No performance standards are required to sign up.
That’s the spirit of the Gay Games!
