Louise: World Champion Power Lifter

 Louise Richardson, power lifter, grew up in Lindfield, West Sussex

By Claire Cooper

Three years ago we featured the story of former Lindfield schoolgirl Louise Richardson and her journey to becoming a British Champion Power Lifter.

We are delighted to be able to follow up Louise’s story and report that her training has literally gone from ‘strength to strength’!

Last month Louise competed in the World Championship in Belarus, winning two gold medals, one bronze and leaving as World Champion in her group! 

“I’m absolutely over the moon,” said Louise, who grew up in the village and attended Lindfield Primary School. 

“It’s the title I’ve always wanted and I’ve been training hard for over a year for, so I’m really delighted with my achievement.”
