HIGH SCHOOL POWERLIFTERS SHOW STRENGTH

Okkodo’s Arjona named Best Lifter

By Patrick Lujan

Twenty two high schoolers competed in the first ever GSPN/Trenheads High School Powerlifting Competition throughout Saturday at the Custom Fitness Gym in Anigua.

After a series of squats, bench presses, and deadlifts, the strength exhibited by the soon-to-be adults shows a bright future in Guam’s powerlifting athletes.

Okkodo’s Gerelle Arjona, (179 lbs) was named the best lifter, combining for a meet-high 590kg (215kg squat, 120kg bench, 255kg deadlift). Big boy To’a Vaiau (275 lbs) from Sanchez was the 2nd highest in accumulative weight with a total of 585kg.

With the great crowd participation and the excitement generated, this first time event will surely become an annual event.

Here are the official results:
