Joshua Badhan (Year 11)won the World Powerlift Championship this weekend. Josh travelled to Sardinia in Italy to take part in the prestigious event held annually last week.

Joshua has been inspired by his father, Mak Singh, and started showing an interest in the sport at the age of only five-years-old. At that timehe would deadlift
the living room sofas to impress his father. Joshua began weight-training at the age of 13 and, by the age of 14, his talent really began to show.

During the World Championship in Italy, Joshua unofficially broke the World Record (113.5kg) by lifting 116kg in the training room but as this was done in the training room and not on the arena floor it didn’t count.

Fantastic, Joshua! We are super proud of you!
