My name is Wendy Barnes and I am 23 years old. I qualified for the BDFPA Powerlifting World Championships which is taking place on 26/27 October 2019 in Germany after successfully competing in the BDFPA National Powerlifting Championships in Scotland on 20 July 2019. I placed third in the Under 58.5 kg category with a total lift of 280kg.
I am looking to fundraise to assist towards the cost of the trip which is approximately £500. This includes:
- Return flights to Germany
- Hotel for 3 nights
- World Championships entry fee
- Transportation in Germany
By competing in powerlifting, my ultimate goal is to continue expanding my knowledge of the sport and increase awareness of the physical and mental benefits to others, in particularly women and young people. I also wish to debunk the common misconception surrounding lifting weights. The attitudes towards what women can and cannot do needs to be challenged in all areas of life and my goal is to contribute to this.
After months of training I am very excited to compete at this level. Thank you all so much in advance for your support.
