ORGIN POWERLIFTING OFFERS EVENTS IN FAST GROWING SPORT

Squat, Bench, Deadlift event provides strong platform on Guam

By Jay Leon Guerrero

Forty eight local powerlifters gathered for the Orgin Powerlifting Event at the Custom Fitness Gym in Anigua on Saturday. Competitors had three events: squat, bench and deadlift to post their numbers in their respective weight divisions to see where they rank amongst the island’s local talent.

“It’s really fun! I love competing in front of big crowds and have people cheer for you. I’m glad COVID is over so we can participate in events like this,” said 60 KG competitor Ezekiel Cabaccang.

Cabaccang was one of many crowd favorites and accomplished a personal record (PR) in the squat section with 150 kilograms. Cabaccang was the lightest male competitor in the event and recorded the heaviest squat.

The event targeted veterans and newcomers in the growing sport on Guam from different weight classes for men and women.

First timer Charles ‘Mama Char’ Catbagan took the stage but not as a musical performer but as a weightlifter: “It was my first ever competition and I honestly learned so much,” said Catbagan. 

Catabagan PR’d in the dead lift section with 407 pounds. “I learned so much about how scoring is done. And how technical your form has to be for all three lifts.”

“This was the ORGNL Strength’s first powerlift event and it was a great turnout! Everyone is so supportive and it was great vibes all around,” said Catbagan.
