Powerlifting Philippines – Results of World Junior & Sub-Junior Powerlifting Championships

Provided by Eddie Torres

We are pleased to inform you of the success of young P.H… powerlifters in the World Championships. Below are the details:

 


FINAL PH TEAM RESULTS at the 2015 World Junior & Sub-Junior Powerlifting Championships

  • Five silver medals, five bronze medals, and seven new Asian records
  • Reign Bautista – 3 silvers, one bronze, three new Asian Sub-Jr records
  • Joan Masangkay – 4 bronze medals, four new Asian Sub-Jr records
  • Jasmine Martin – 1 silver
  • Regie Ramirez – 1 silver

 Joan posted a massive lead over Bovkun Mariya of Kazakhstan for the Total bronze in the 43kg class, which USA’s Mitchell Ashley won. Who shattered the world record in the Total & Deadlift. Interestingly, the gold & silver medalists will be over-age for Sub-Juniors next year, while Joan will still have another year in the Sub-Juniors.

In the 47kg class, Reign bested lifters from Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Romania, and Japan to give it to USA’s LaChapelle Taylor, who smashed two world records. Reign has only been lifting a little more than a year, so she has a huge potential to get stronger next year.

 Jasmine beat lifters from Russia, Ukraine & Japan to get the Deadlift silver, just behind Hudson Allegra of the USA. The gold medalist in the Total was Primakova Irina of Russia.

 Regie had to overcome lifters from the USA, Russia, Japan & Kyrgyzstan to get the deadlift silver but was beaten by another lifter from Kyrgyzstan, Alymbek uulu Azamat, who is in his last year in the Juniors. However, Regie can still compete as a Junior next year.

 Attached are pictures of Joan, Reign, Jasmine’s awarding ceremonies, and the deadlift action picture of Regie.

2015 National Bench Press Competition Powerlifting Philippines

April 8, 2015

Article by Andrew Pirie

  • bench-championAndrew Pirie wins Novice National Bench Title in the 65kg weight range

*  N.B… this is an article from a few months ago. I was just digging through my drafts and found this.

The ‘Powerlifting Association of the Philippines’ had ‘Dew Foam National Bench Press Championships at Robinson’s Place Mall, in Antipolo.

MEMBER: INTERNATIONAL POWERLIFTING FEDERATION
ASIAN POWERLIFTING FEDERATION
PHILIPPINE OLYMPIC COMMITTEE
RECOGNIZED BY: PHILIPPINE SPORTS COMMISSION

This was my first time participating in this meeting. Although my Bench Press PR is 109kg in practice, I opted for 82.5kg as there are many rules to observe.

Such as Can’t lift butt off the bench, can’t lift feet off the floor, three commands each with around two-second pauses (Down, Press, and Rack). You get three lifts. I was competing in the -66kg category weighing in at 64.9kg. I warmed up and then chose 82.5kg as this was a manageable weight. The problem came not with the weight but with getting used to the commands; it wasn’t a smooth press on the first attempt as the right elbow dropped slightly. Then on my second attempt, I racked it while the command was on the rack, which also saw red flags.

The Commentator then gave me encouragement on the third lift saying, “Will he lift this or bomb out of the competition” luckily, the third attempt at 82.5kg was successful and gave me Gold in the Novice and Bronze overall in my weight class.
