Hosted by the Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association in Brisbane last Saturday, the Townsville duo impressed with some impressive efforts on the national stage.
Moffat, 21, lifted a personal best of 132kg in the 97kg body weight division, while Taylor, 35, lifted 102kg in the 88kg class.
Both lifters have cerebral palsy and train together at Strand Fitness, with Moffat’s lift made all the more impressive given his loss of around 14kg in body weight over the past year to be fitter and healthier for his sport.
“I’m really happy with my result given the weight loss,” Moffat said.
“Now I can just focus on my lifting ahead of the next competition in February. My goal is to represent Australia in powerlifting at the 2108 Commonwealth Games.”
Taylor was delighted to break into the “100 club” given he has narrowly missed the mark in his two previous competitions as he continues to improve in the sport.
