CHARD powerlifter Emily Greenway has claimed a silver medal at the Women's All England Championships in Northampton.

Having finished third last year, to take bronze, the 2019 event saw her place second out of 20 competitors on Sunday.

Greenway made six out of nine lifts; although she did not achieve any personal bests, she matched her squat and deadlift personal best on her second attempts.

She shared the podium with Sheri Miles (first place) and Sophie Culshaw (third).

Greenway said: "I want to thank Luke Bennett, my partner, who is always by my side and helping me through.

"Also Simon Lunn at Phoenix Fitness Chard, for having a fantastic gym and support network to help me train when I need to."
