Meet Britain's strongest woman

07th July 2015

A weightlifter from the region has been crowned Britain's Strongest Woman in the middleweight category.

Ms Todd, who has recently started work as as a self-employed personal trainer at the Lifestyle Fitness gym in Hartlepool, said her best event was the farmer's walk which involves walking with two heavy bars carrying a heavy weight, cutting deep into the hands. Lifting a dead weight had torn her forearms open. "It's something you really have to commit to," she said. "I used to do it for a aesthetic reasons, to look athletic, but now I build my career around it. I would like to be the world's strongest woman."
