Powerlifter Jean Maton wins four European gold medals
JEAN Maton returned from the European Masters Powerlifting Championships held in Hamm, Luxembourg, with four gold medals.
Maton, now competing as a Masters Two lifter (age 50 plus), competed in the 84kg-plus class for team points and was unopposed.
She squatted 160kg, bench pressed 110 kg and deadlifted 185kg to give her a total of 455kg.
Maton was not too happy with her squat and overall total but was happy to help the Masters Two Women’s Team come away with the top place in the team trophy, beating second-placed France by 22 points.
She is now hoping to compete in the World Masters Championships, which are to be held in Orlando at the end of September.
