World Champion Sub-Junior Power lifter Tiffany !

In late August 15 year old Tiffany Pilnikova , a member of Salford’s Shacklady’s Gym, became World Champion at the worlds biggest powerlifting competition held in Romania and hosting 37 Countries.

Tiffany had been in training for the sport for a mere 9mths when she broke all British world records to take the world title. Her mum Lenka, herself a 3 times powerlifting champion tells us that Tiffany is yet to take in her huge success brought about by her determined commitment to her training while always being spurred on by the team at Barton Athletic Club. ” They always encourage and cheer for her !” Lenka told me.

Tiffany  has since been selected for the European championships in Budapest with a mere 5 weeks to prepare. Lenka is a sports nutritionist and she credits good food for assisting her daughter to reach her goals saying that the combination of this and her training schedule have contributed to Tiffany feeling “healthier, fitter and happier”


Greater Manchester Youth Federation are extremely proud of all of our affiliated clubs and we would like to thank John at Barton AC for helping us to secure permission from Lenka to share the news of Tiffany’s amazing achievement. No doubt there will be many more to come. Congratulations Tiffany from all at GM Youth Federation
