Happily now known as TEAM PRECIOUS, the group returned from a very successful trip to Las Vegas in November 2014.

There Precious himself broke no less than four world records for lifting in the over 75 group. The rest of the team all accomplished personal best lifts and broke New Zealand records, returning home with trophies.

While there, the Powerlifting organization WABDL (World Association Bench-press and Dead Lift), USA inducted Precious into their Hall of Fame on Friday 21 November.

Precious broke 20 world records for WABDL in Hawaii at the Sheraton Hotel, Waikiki, from 1976 to 1979.

Precious is keen to return to the Las Vegas competitions next year, coming out of retirement  as coach to the next TEAM PRECIOUS, which he hopes will feature ten lifters. He will not be competing, but will be fully focused on coaching the new team.

Precious is grateful to have been sponsored by two great friends - Sir Owen Glenn and actor John Rhys-Davies.

"I will be out to break world records especially for my two good friends." PM

Mission Accomplished!
Well done, all.
