This lady can lift

A Castlemaine resident has received municipal congratulations after powerlifting her way to national success, clinching the Lifter of Lifters title at the recent National Powerlifting Championships in Melbourne.
At its meeting on Tuesday night the Mount Alexander Shire Council formally congratulated Castlemaine powerlifter Therese Pollard for her weighty achievement.
Known as one of Castlemaine’s “ladies who lift” Mrs Pollard, 69, now has her sights set on next year’s world titles. For the full story see last Friday’s Castlemaine Mail.
