Centennial’s team of powerlifters – Wayne Knock, Ron Simeon and Stephen Exil – cleaned up the trophy table at the 3rd Annual College/University Open hosted by Seneca College on February 8th. The team won first place on the podium and won all three awards (best bench press, best squat, and best deadlift) in our session. All three boys made impressive numbers and reached new personal records and even neared provincial records (Ontario Adults). Not bad for students.
We made quite the impression at the competition, having showed up with one of the smallest teams compared to other schools. Our team went through intense preparations and had impressive coaching leading up to and on the day of from AWC coach Fareed Bandukwala. A special thanks to James Lu who played a key role in maintaining the athletes’ bodies under harsh training conditions leading up to competition.
Official meet pictures will be posted on http://sousastrengthconditi.wix.com/collegeanduniversity#!meet-info/citr. There are future meets are on the horizon for March and April.
