* ◆Overview*
The weight training club of National University Corporation Okayama University (Headquarters: Kita-ku, Okayama City, President: Yasutomo Nasu) held a training session at the second gymnasium of the university’s Tsushima Campus on June 16, 2024*
“59th Kansai Student Spring Powerlifting Championship”*
The team participated and won the team championship. In this tournament, sponsored by the Kansai Student Powerlifting Federation, team rankings are determined by combining the scores obtained from individual rankings in each class. A total of 37 athletes from 5 universities are participating in this tournament, and while the competition is heated, it is the first large-scale tournament for the weight training club since the new system was established this spring, and the athletes, seconders, assistants, and administrators are all involved. This was a result in which everyone demonstrated their strengths.

Miyu Kawahara (4th year, Faculty of Engineering), who placed first in the women’s 52 kg class, broke all-Japan student records in bench press and total weight of all events, and was selected as the best female athlete. In addition, Reho Tsubouchi (4th year, Faculty of Economics), who took first place in the men’s 105kg+ category, accomplished the feat of breaking all-Japan student records in the bench press and deadlift.

Commenting on the results of this tournament, Mr. Kawahara said, “I think we have made a good start toward winning the intercollegiate team championship.It’s a new year, and we have a lot of new students, so the team is full of energy.From now on, we will not only rely on individual strength. Our challenge is to improve our strength as a team.” Mr. Tsubouchi also said, “I believe that we were able to win by combining the strengths of the entire team, including the new students who enrolled in the spring.The whole team will continue to maintain this momentum and aim to win at the intercollegiate school in November. I’ll do my best.”

The weight training club plans to participate in the Kansai Student Bodybuilding Championship in September and the Kansai Student Fall Powerlifting Championship in October. We look forward to seeing you in future tournaments!
