There was a massive show of strength at CFI Fitness in Port McNeill on March 10, as two Special Olympics BC powerlifting teams took over the gym for an afternoon of heavy lifting.

Team Dog (Callum Maclagan and Ty Cranton) travelled up island from Campbell River to face off against the hometown team, the Iron Chisel, in what turned out to be an amazing sight to behold, as the dedicated athletes set personal bests in three different events: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift.

Iron Chisel team members Anthony Schofield, John Bee, and Dom Parsons all dug down deep in their souls during each of the three events, with the highlight being Bee (who weighs only 160 lbs) deadlifting an incredible 310 lbs on his third attempt.
