Weightlifting mum can deadlift over twice her bodyweight
Meet the mum who makes tough household chores look like light work. Petite Becki Barrett is only five ft, one tall but she doesn’t break a sweat a she lifts her six-stone sofa with one arm to hoover underneath. She doesn’t even have to ask her six-year-old daughter, Kayla, who adds an extra three stone to its weight, to move out of the way. During her weekly shopping trip, she singlehandedly carries all the bags as well as Kayla all at once with staggering ease. And she manages all the ironing with her daughter in one arm. But Becki, from Reading, isn’t your average mum. When she’s not looking after Kayla or working as a nursery key worker she’s spending time on her favourite hobby – weightlifting. Incredibly, Becki can deadlift weights up to 21 stone. She can also raise an eight-stone barbell above her head. She’s so strong, she can carry her 14-stone boyfriend, Adam Hales, 34. And she can pull the family’s Volkswagen Polo – with both Adam, an environmental enforcement officer, and Kayla inside. Now Becki is set to compete in the final for England’s Strongwoman Championships after qualifying in April this year. And she is the only mum to compete in her class – the under 63 kilos.

A GRAPHIC designer has created this scale model of a Lamborghini police interceptor - out of nothing but CARDBOARD. Taras Lesko spent 120 hours meticulously planning, designing and piecing the replica Aventador A-E2. Taras printed the cars detailed bodywork on large-format adhesive paper which was then mounted on to the cardboard sheets. The end result was the largest - and most detailed - cardboard model he has created to date.
