Shachar attended the World Drug Free powerlifting championships Boston Massachusetts. She faced a number of the worlds strongest lifters. She hoisted personal bests in all disciplines except the bench press. Her lifts of 137.5 kg squat, 160kg deadlift and 360 kg total were lifetime bests, they
also smashed the existing world bests for a teenager aged 16/17.
She was up against women from Belgium, France, USA, Malta and the UK.
Head’s total for the day of 360 kg was the second highest female total and her points tally based on weight and amount lifted saw her finish 4th in the overall standings a seven place improvement on 2011.
Shachar has proved this year that no matter what you go through and however many doubtful comments you receive, that persevering and being dedicated through the tough times and believing in yourself can take you to the top.
“It was a fantastic experience and i am so made up that i won! all the hard work, dieting, training and support really has paid off! I feel so privileged that i got the chance to compete in the USA – the home of powerlifting!! I couldnt be happier”Shachar trains out of Peak Performance in Torquay.
