Sault Ste. Marie’s powerlifting Lasante family (Holly, her daughter Taylor and son Noah) has once again done the Sault proud.
“We have recently all done really well at the Provincial Championships,” Holly gushed in an email to SooToday.
Holly and Taylor won gold medals, while Noah took silver.
Taylor and Noah competed in the Junior and Sub Junior Provincials in Ottawa in October, while Holly competed at the Masters and Open Provincials in Bowmanville, Ontario.
The Lasante family is no stranger to winning at powerlifting.
Taylor and Noah inspired their Mom to get involved in powerlifting, and since then, the three have become a true power trio.
At the World Powerlifting Championships in Minsk, Belarus in June, Noah won the silver medal for his squat and was ranked fourth in the world in the 16 to 18 category.
Holly did well and was ranked seventh in the world in the 40 to 50 years old category.
Previously, Holly, a Pollard Bank Note human resources professional, won a gold medal at the Canadian National Championships in Quebec.
Noah, a White Pines Collegiate student, has also previously won gold in his category.
Taylor, a Sault College student, has also done well on the national stage, reaching new personal bests in squats and bench press lifts.
Apart from their already busy lives as employees and students, the family works out together at a local gym and trains others at their east end home.
The National Championships will be held in Calgary in February.
