College pupil participated in EP Cape Rhino Powerlifting competition

St Andrew’s College pupil Daniel Cotton took part in the Eastern Cape Rhino Powerlifting Clubs Push and Pull competition at Westview High School in Port Elizabeth.

He competed against 21 other male athletes and weighed in at 91 kilograms to be classed in the under 105-kilogram division.

Daniel achieved a 120 kg bench press and a 232.5 kg deadlift to have an overall total of 352.5 kgs which ensured he won the junior under 18 division winning the best overall junior lifter trophy.

He narrowly missed out on the heaviest bench in the under 18 division and achieved the second heaviest deadlift overall across all age and weight groups competing against some of the under 25-year-old athletes.
