Gay Games Ambassador wins European championship

Chris Morgan wins European championship gold and Best Lifter award

Chris Morgan, the current Gay Games Powerlifting champion, has won his first World Drug-Free Powerlifting Federation European Championship Gold medal, plus his first ‘International’ Best Lifter Award at this year’s European Deadlift Championships.

He was lifting in the competition held in Volka, Estonia and made lifts of 215 kilos, 240 kilos and then a lifetime best of 265 kilos at a bodyweight of 81.4 kilos to take the overall pound for pound title.

Speaking about the competition, Chris said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted to have won my first European Gold Medal and more importantly my first International Best Lifter title. I can’t quite believe that after winning six british titles and four world titles during my career that this is my first European Championship win’.

Chris added: ‘After nearly a year of injury and illness I was beginning to worry that I may never have the opportunity to finish my collection of World and European Medals. This now means I have Gold, Silver and Bronze medals from both World and European Championships’.
