Back from this year’s GBPF 4 Nations and what a weekend – could not have asked for it to go any better, gotta be one of the best weekends EVER!
Nobody really knows the last time that Scotland won a powerlifting title like this but it was decades ago. What an amazing team and experience, hope this motivates all our members to hit the platform and get lifting and training hard as the competition will be in Scotland next year and we want the best team possible to retain our title! Now we’ve got it we don’t want to let it go!
This is a Team competition and honestly our Scottish Team did themselves as individuals proud, our AMAZING coach William Lincoln proud, Scottish Powerlifting proud and Scotland as a whole proud.
12 lifters travelled, 1 coach, officials and supporters and all played a part in this Team event – well done Team Scotland.
Our Unequipped team consisted of: Jo Kane, Lee Hellstrom, Apple Doepner, William Murray, Aidan Donnelly and Darren Leggatt
what an impressive performance from all of them and most of this team were new lifters so all the more impressive and was the first team competition for all of them. Click here for the coaches report.
Our Equipped team consisted of: Louise Murray, Lisa Davidson, Me (Michelle Brand), Daniel Marmander, Bernie McGurk and Robert Love. Our Equipped Team lifted their way to picking up the Best Equipped Team trophy of the competition. Everyone in this team has competed at National and/or International level and this showed with really professional performances across the board. More detail is available in the coaches report.
“What time is it?”

The 2013 4 Nations Team
Big thank you to all our supporters and officials who travelled over Tom, Kenny, Nikki, Lorraine, Pamela, Lara, Pat,
Campbell and Stevie.
The biggest round of appreciation has to go to the one and only 5 times IPF World Champion and our Scottish Team coach Willie Lincoln – you were everybody’s rock, great focus and understanding of this sport, how our lifters work and how to get the best out of each and every one of your lifters, well done Willie, without you this would not have been possible and I know for a fact Scotland would not have come back as Champions
