Marlon shines at Open Classic Worlds

June 2022

Marlon started Powerlifting in 2005. He was introduced to Powerlifting by Rodney Anthony. Marlon has represented South Africa in both Equipped and Classic lifting at numerous  World, Commonwealth and Africa Champs.

Last week saw Marlon compete at the Open Classic World Championships In Sun City in the 83kg divisions. After 2 successful squat attempts, the 2nd being an SA Open and SA Master 1, African & Commonwealth squat record, Marlon attempted the Master 1 Squat world record which he only narrowly missed. Marlon went on to pull a lifetime best deadlift of 250kg, breaking the SA Master 1 Total record (647.5kg).

We’re so proud of you Marlon!

Marlon has trained by himself, under head coach Rodney’s guidance and programming, for most of COVID, coming in to do his big workouts at School of Strength. Marlon is the hardest worker and all round nice guy. He so deserves these achievements. We would love to get Marlon to worlds to have another shot at that world record. We will be doing some fundraising to get him there. Please support this amazing lifter.
