Denison Powerlifter Justin Bigelow Wins State Championship

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX--- Denison senior powerlifter Justin Bigelow is a State Champion. Bigelow lifted a total of 1935 pounds in his 275 pound weightclass. That broke the 1900 pound record set more than 10 years ago.

That also earned him a Division I state title. Bigelow says this couldn't have happened without hard work.

"It's a dream I've had since I started power lifting. I said I wanted to win state my senior year and it took not just a year, working three years to build upon each year and it just feels great to achieve a goal," Denison powerlifter, Justin Bigelow said.
