Wheelchair Sports NSW will host another event for wheelchair athletes in Newcastle on Saturday, 7 September.
Para Power events double as competitive events for seasoned lifters to set personal bests and an opportunity for newcomers to try their hand at adaptive lifting.
Competitors perform an adaptive bench press with competitors placed in separate weight divisions depending on the number of lifters at each event. A huge range of people with varying abilities, ages and skill levels compete in the events.
Para Power Newcastle will be held on Saturday, 7 September from 10am – 12pm at Breaking Boundaries Rehab, 1/52 Industrial Drive, Mayfield.
Entries are now open.
