The 2011 edition of the Guyana Amateur Powerlifting Federation (GAPF) Intermediate and Claude Charles Memorial Championships will take place on Sunday June 26 at the St. Stanislaus College Auditorium, Brickdam, Georgetown.
According to a GAPF release, registration to date indicates that for the Intermediate competition the Ancient County of Berbice will be fielding a team of five (5) lifters spearheaded by Pan American Under-18 Sub Junior Selectee Gumendra Shewdas.
Also on the Berbice side will be Guyana’s youngest lifter ever to date – 15 year old Kevin Brijlall.
The City will be fielding a team of seven (7) lifters from three gyms including the newly formed Iron House Gym headed by National lifter and motor racing enthusiast Mark Seymour. The other gyms fielding athletes are Kingsrow Barbell Club and Buddies.
Osmond Mack of Kingsrow will be attempting to repeat his feat as best lifter overall (open) in the Intermediate but will have to come good against the young and hungry brigade of lifters expected to compete.
The Bauxite Mining Town of Linden will be represented by Godwin Edwards who has been improving steadily.
The Masters (Claude Charles) Championships as always is expected to be very exciting with the Masters showing off their power.
Winston Stoby, the 2010 Caribbean and CAC medalist will be throwing down the gauntlet to fellow veterans the likes of Berbician Farouk Abdool, ‘Big’ John Edwards one of Guyana’s most decorated lifters, Errol ‘Big Man’ Henry and Edwin Spencer.
Stoby apart from aiming to top the field will use the championship to further fine tune preparations for the upcoming World Masters Championships.
