Powerlifting: Bringing medals back home
Hard work recently paid off for three local powerlifters.
A few weeks ago Shawn Frasquillo, Laura McGuill and LS McLain III traveled to the 2013 International Powerlifting Federation World Cup held in Suzdal, Russia. Frasquilllo, McGuill and McLain, who all train at the San Marcos Athletic Club under the direction of Bobby Warren, prepared for their chance at world glory for more than a year.
It was Frasquillo’s second consecutive trip to the IPF World Cup, but a maiden voyage for McGuill and McLain. Not much fazed the trio, as they brought home five total medals.
“We trained for a while to get ourselves to where we had to be,” said Frasquillo, who graduated from San Marcos High in 2004. “Our mindset had to change to be able to do well there.
“Results don’t lie. We all worked really hard. This is just tremendous.”
