Powerlifting father and daughter Mike Davies and Nikki Elding have qualified for next year’s British Championships.

Nikki booked her place in both the bench press and deadlift finals after winning the two categories at the Open West Midlands Drug-Free Powerlifting Association Championships in Worcester this weekend.

The 46-year-old was competing in the Masters Two Category, where she recorded 115 kilos in the deadlift.

This was followed up with a lift of 60 kilos in the bench.

Meanwhile, dad Mike, 76, was competing in the Masters Eight category.

He lifted 110 kilos in the deadlift to make sure of his place in the British finals.

The pair were both representing Boston at the championships.

Nikki is coached by her husband Chris Elding while Mike’s support comes from his wife Maureen.
