Vegan storms the powerlifting rankings

Powerlifter Alison Crowdus has been named in the international rankings with her impressive Bench Press.

Alison, who has been vegan since 2012, currently has the 12th largest bench of all time, in the world for all weight classes. Her monster press is the eighth biggest of all time for Super Heavyweight and she is currently Number One in the USA.

She is the tenth woman in the world to have benched 500lb (226.8kg).

Understandably Alison was very pleased with the rankings when we were in touch with her.

“I had an idea of where I would be ranked with that bench so the ranking itself wasn't a surprise but it was definitely exciting to hit that milestone” she said. “I have big plans for my bench and am looking forward to putting in the work to climb the ranks!”

We will be watching for future displays of vegan power and bringing you the news.
