A CAMPAIGN has been launched to get a 65-year-old powerlifter to the world championships.

Su Sabuda, who lives in Haltwhistle, has qualified to represent Great Britain at the championships in South Africa.

The selection came after Su, who trains at ET Fitness in Hexham, broke the British bench press record during the nationals in October.

Su said: “It would mean the absolute world to me.”
