ABS and Jay Farrant put on an incredible show this past weekend showcasing the best male and female lifters in Ireland.
Thank you to all who helped out over the weekend. Admin, referees, spotters and loaders; no competition can run without these people. Thank you for the time and effort you put in.
Congratulations to everyone who lifted! All results are available at the link below: https://www.openpowerlifting.org/m/irishpf/2201
There were fantastic performances across the weekend. Two lifters stood out from the crowd to be crowned Irish Powerlifting Federation Best Lifters Nationals 2022:
Anna Hourihane of ABS with 457.72 Dots
Ken Nwaezeigwe of Odyssey with 492.85 Dots
Well done to both lifters – they give so much to the Federation on and off the platform.

ABS secured their fourth Club Championship title in a row with a dominant 21 podium placings. CityGym placed second and, after a tough fight, we saw a new club join the club podium with Odyssey in third!
We’ve seen some big milestones fall in the past and this year Sarah Gardiner added to those landmark moments. She finished with a massive 500kg total in the 84+kg class and became the first female in the IrishPF to total 500kg!
Thanks to everyone who was part of the weekend.
We’ll be launching our next events shortly- see you on the platform!
