In 2018 Irish Para powerlifter Britney Arendse set a junior world record with a lift of 985 kg at the -73 kg weight class after only being associated with powerlifting for two years. You check out that correctly. Arendse was at the top of her video game after only two years of training. It’s not surprising that why she has the nickname of “Spartacus,” a name given to her by her mother.
Arendse’s 2018 junior world record was the very first by an Irish Para powerlifter and a mark she would go on to break two more times in 2019 (100 kg and 102 kg).
