Congratulations to Joanne Newman for breaking the Masters 50+ Women Under 80kg Front Squat Harness World Record. I’m sure we will be hearing a lot from Joanne in the future.  Joanne is on a record smashing mission.

Joanne Newman details below:

My name is Joanne Newman. I was born on the 21st of September 1960 and live in New Zealand.Joanne Newman


I am an Accountant and Licenced Private Investigator.

I took up the sport of power lifting at 53 years of age. With the assistance of my coach Strini Naidoo from Physical Impact, Tauranga, we have been able to push myself to limits I never dreamed I could do. I am on an incredible journey.

My goal is to become a Gold Medallist Powerlifter for woman in the 55-60 age category.
