The Belize Powerlifting Association is beaming with pride tonight after two more of its members have snagged medals in Panama. The team of eight is in Panama City participating in the 19th North American Championships. The association’s president, Khalid Usher, who also medaled today, spoke to Love News via phone about the team’s achievements this week.
Usher explained that plans are already in the making to participate in more competitions, including next year’s championships in the Cayman Islands.
Usher himself and William Murillo are among a group of four from Belize who received bronze medals while one of the coaches, Alida Wright Sharp and Robert Williams picked up gold in their classes.
