What a great start to 2015 for GPC Australia! The last 6 weeks have been massive, with well over 400 lifters battling it out at State Titles across the country. Our membership numbers just keep growing with 669 lifters currently registered, the largest number of registered lifters of any Australian federation.  
A special mention must go to Kristos Papanotis for becoming the first Australian EVER to hold an ALL TIME WR. He achieved this at the South Australian State Championships via a 277.5kg squat, 142.5kg bench press and a 297.5kg deadlift. This also gets him the second highest raw gloss at GPC Aus, just a few points behind Odell Manuel.

After talking to Stan "The Rhino" Effering last week, he is starting to get really excited about coming out to our Nationals - He said he has only heard awesome thing about GPC Australia.

Massive congratulations to Kristos Papanotis, who's 717.5kg total at the South Australian State Titles broke a 16 year old record to take him to the All-Time #1 Ranking in the 67.5kg class. At only 20 years old, we can certainly expect more in the future from Kristos!
