On the 18th of March our 2015 Greenlyn Athlete of the year, Jeanri Bezuidenhout, once again proved that this was a well deserved merit, when she took part in the SA Raw Powerlifting championships in Potchefstroom.
|After qualifying at the Gauteng championships in August last year, where she won the junior division, we knew that it was going to be a tough competition, as this time she was competing in the 52kg Ladies open division. Jeanri came 2nd overall, with a brilliant total of 300,5kgs.|
Her squat has improved from 90kgs in August to 115,5kgs and she even held the SA record for the squat briefly until it was broken again by her fellow competitor 2min later. With her total she qualifies for SA colors, and we are waiting to hear if she will be selected for the team that will be representing SA at the Raw powerlifting championships in Texas later this year. We are very proud of Jeanri dedicated and hard work toward her training through all mental and physical challenges that stand in her way.
Well done Jeanri!
