Father and daughter Mike Davis and Nikki Elding have qualified for the British Powerlifting finals.

The duo, from Boston, both won their deadlift and bench press categories at the West Midlands finals in Worcester last week.

Mike won his Masters Eight category by breaking two British records.

Meanwhile, Nikki lifted 110k in the deadlift and 55k in the bench press to win her two Masters Two categories.

They will now both qualify for the British finals in March next year.

It’s been a good year for Davies and Elding already.

In the summer Nikki won two titles at the World Championships in Antwerp, Belgium, retaining her deadlift title and claiming the bench press world title.

Meanwhile, dad Mike, won the Masters Seven deadlift title.

They helped England win the team event.
