These are his 12th 13th and 14th career British Championship titles.
This is the fourth time in the last five years that Chris has been the overall Best Lifter at the British Deadlift Championships. This weekend’s Championship has qualified him for his tenth World Powerlifting Final scheduled to take place on the 8th June in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Speaking about the competition, Chris Said, ‘I’m absolutely delighted to win the overall Best Lifter award once again at this year’s British championships. This was an ideal opportunity to try some new things in preparation for the forthcoming World Championship which are only a few weeks away.”
Chris Said : “I’d like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that Gay Games 9 is happening this coming August in Cleveland, United States with thousands of athletes attending from all over world.
“The Gay Games are the place where I started my competitive career in Powerlifting back in 1998 and I’m very grateful for the encouragement they have given to me compete as an openly Gay Athlete throughout my fifteen year career in elite sports”.
