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.

Watch the trailer for Black Swan, the new film starring Natalie Portman. A New York City ballet company is producing Swan Lake, and director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) with ballerina Nina (Portman). Nina lives with Erica (Hershey), her overbearing mother and a former ballerina. Nina finds competition in new dancer Lily (Kunis). Swan Lake requires a ballerina who can play the innocent White Swan, which fits Nina, and the sensual Black Swan, which fits Lily. The dancers' rivalry changes into a bizarre friendship, and Nina begins exploring a dark side of herself.
