    Filipina breaks world record in power lifting

    A FILIPINA broke the world record for power lifting by carrying a total of 205 kilograms in the squat event of the 8th World Master Power Lifting Championships 2005 held recently in Pretoria, the Department of Foreign Affairs announced Tuesday.

    Ambassador Virgilio Reyes of the Philippine embassy in Pretoria, who was present at the Carousel Sports Arena during the record-breaking feat, said that Erlina "Lily" Pecante also won three gold medals in the 75-kilogram to 90-kilogram class, on October 6.

    In his report to the home office, Reyes said the rest of the four-member delegation of the Power Lifting Association of the Philippines bagged medals in their respective categories during the championships from October 4-10.

    On October 8, head of delegate Peter Edward Torres of the 100-kg class, won a gold medal in the dead lift event, a silver medal in the squat, and a bronze medal in the bench-press event, garnering the third overall honors in his weight class.

    5, Catalina "Nina" Oca of the 44-kg to 56-kg class won a bronze medal in the bench press event.

    The other member of the team is Antonio Taguibao of the 62-kg to 67.5-kg class.

    I congratulate these four world-class Filipino power lifters who proved their strength by beating their contenders and breaking [the] world record. Their display of strength is a manifestation of the Filipinos physical and moral strength, Reyes said.
