Natalie Blake is a four-time Paralympian who won a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in the 61kg class.
Natalie’s most recent success came in February 2016 at the IPC Powerlifting World Cup in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where she lifted a personal best of 98kg. Her PB at the event saw her bring home the bronze and earn vital points ahead of her closest rivals to help her secure her place in Rio – and her fifth Paralympic Games – this summer.
Natalie has been competing longer than any other female powerlifter for Great Britain under IPC rules, and was one of the first and youngest females to compete in Sydney 2000 when women powerlifters were permitted to take part for the first time.
