Lynn power lifter James Jeffries (45) won the British Bench Press Championships in Stafford.

In 2012 Jeffries sustained a left upper arm injury so severe he was told he would never benchpress again.

After two years of recovery he decided to try again and within just four months of training won the British Championships.

It was a close fought contest with Jeffries winning by just 2.5 kg. There were over 400 entries lifting in just that one day.

Jeffries is now looking forward to representing Great Britain in the World Drug Free Championships in Telford this coming June,

If you are interested in Powerlifting, Jeffries can be found at the Motiv8 Gym, Goodwins Road, Lynn, and would be pleased and happy to help anyone interested.

He runs classes at the gym, which has just been affiliated to the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association, and can be contacted on 07825 885799.
