CJ has girl power!

Thursday, 12 July 2018

AN Antrim nurse has made it into the record books at the World Powerlifting Championships in Canada.
In what she has called 'the most surreal experience of my life', Chloé-Jade McDonald competed on the global stage alongside her idols, going last and finishing with 130 squat, 70 bench and a 177.5kg deadlift to secure national standard and three Irish records.
She finished third overall in the deadlift, scooping a bronze medal.
CJ  is the current -57kg National champion and holds a number of Irish records including a phenomenal 163kg deadlift record.
Her rise in the sport has been nothing short of meteoric, as she continues to juggle her intensive training schedule with a career as a psychiatric nurse as well as her duties as Randalstown Hockey Club's First XI captain.
