Photo: BEN WATSON Powerlifter Kristel Modderman will be wearing considerably less than her opposition during the Oceania Powerlifting Championships next month. Modderman who competes in the 52kg weight class refuses to wear a bench shirt, a squat suit, a belt or even knee wraps. Instead she will compete in Samoa in just a t-shirt and soft suit which is similar to a wrestler's. Very few powerlifters of either gender compete without the assistance equipment. It has to do with ego, they want to be able to lift as much as they can,'' Modderman says. And they are pressured to follow the majority.'' Modderman admits that turning her back on the legal suits which are made from poly- ester and worn very tight to help lifters reach heavier totals, automatically puts her on the back foot. I know a woman who can only bench-press 50kg without a bench suit, but with one on she can bench-press 70kg and men seem to get much more of an increase,'' she says. In the early days of powerlifting people didn't use this type of equipment. Now they use the equipment rather than just getting strong,'' the 27-year-old Northcote resi- dent says. Modderman believes the exact advantage can be deter- mined during dead lifts for which there is no assistance equipment available. It is evident when I dead lift 130kg and they are struggling at 110kg.'' Modderman, who has been lifting for three years, has never worn the assistance equipment and doesn't plan to. People say I need to think about it if I want to be serious, but I haven't and I have qualified for Oceanias anyway.'' Modderman looks up to raw, without equipment, advocate Ali Gascoine who has won a world masters powerlifting title. The International Power- lifting Federation has started raw competition to be run alongside suited competition in Australia. Triples upset for Milford Before this season, the Milford Bowling Club had claimed just one North Harbour centre title. Now it boasts three after the combination of Colin Crocker, Rus- sell Hocking and Tony Rickerby pulled off a major upset in win- ning the Dick Bree championship triples at Browns Bay. In the final they knocked over the powerful Browns Bay threesome of Ross Haresnape, John Tay- lor and Colin Rogan, who collectively claim more than 50 centre titles. Haresnape's team was a raging favourite to extend their win- ning sequence after outclassing Don Trott's handy Birken- head side in the semi- finals but Milford never relinquished the initiative in the final. Hocking, who claimed Milford's first centre title a couple of seasons back in the champion of cham- pions singles and who has won centre titles in Bay of Plenty and Northland, drove accurately, Rickerby won the battle of the leads and veteran Crocker guided the side well as skip. Milford's other cen- tre triumph this season was in the 2-4-2 mixed pairs where Tim Preston and Ann Dorreen also upset the favourites. The prestigious women's centre singles title was won by Browns Bay's seasoned campaigner Gail Dick, who out- lasted Orewa's Cindy Henley in the final, 21-13. Dick edged out Jan Gledhill in the semi- finals while Henley beat Carole Fredrick. The women's one to five year's singles title went to Birkenhead, with Lisa Helmling beating Fleur Towns- end (Browns Bay) in the final. Takapuna come back for outright win CLUB CRICKET It was a case of losing the battle but winning the war for Takapuna as they battled back from conceding first innings points to claim an out- right over near neighbours North Shore in the first round of the two-day major cham- pionship. Chasing North Shore's challenging first inning total of 301, Takapuna's Greg Johnson (63) and Craig Cachopa (37) were the main contributors before Shore's Evan Atkinson led the charge taking 3-37 to see Taka- puna declare at 145-7. North Shore then helped to set up the run chase by declaring at 90-5 to give Takapuna a target of 247. The fact that they got there was down largely to one man -- Craig Cachopa. That he was left unbeaten on 99 was a cruel end to an innings that guided Takapuna to victory. It was a close fought tussle as East Coast Bays spent most of the day trying in vain to claim first innings points off Cornwall. Needing another 220 runs at the start of the day Bays struggled to find the one batsman that would hold the innings together and get them past the total. Thirties from captain Matt Mimmack and Richard Lane were not enough as Cornwall Eng- lish import Darryl Mit- chell bagged three as did paceman Lachie Fergu- sen. There was only time left for some bonus point chasing for both sides, with Mitchell (63) and Lane (3-20) again dominating as Cornwall stuttered to 117-5 to see out the draw. Birkenhead City must have started the day fancying their chances of grabbing first innings points against Waitakere City in the minor cham- pionship as they needed another 95 runs with six wickets in hand. That hope did not last long on day two as Scott Curtis ripped through the Birkenhead batting line-up to grab a six- wicket bag and help dis- miss the home side for just 114, only 24 runs on from their overnight score. Waitakere then comfortably batted out the day with Aaron Jeavons (90) picking up his second 50 of the match. Back in action seeking the right result Another setback last week dropped us back to clear second on the lad- der and a 5-2 record. It was a really dis- appointing loss, espec- ially because this was such a big game. A top of the table clash and a packed out stadium really set the platform and it was disappointing to let the fans down. Our first Friday night game in a long time seemed to really bring the people out and it was great to play in front of the 4000 crowd who came along. We came out and played hard but the shots just didn't drop and that's basketball for you. Some days they go in and some days they don't. Unfortunately too many of us had bad nights and we could not get it done on the offens- ive end. The good news is that we have a chance to redeem ourselves and jump straight back into action tonight against Gold Coast. The beauty of this league is that there is never too much time to dwell on what has happened because the next game is always right around the corner. The mood in camp is very positive because we know what we are capable of and with a full week of preparation under our belts I'm sure we will be a different team this week. Gold Coast are still incorporating their two new imports into their system but still bring with them a style of game that can really hurt you in a hurry. They let the three ball fly without hesitation and that can really be dangerous. Taking away the three and making them work hard for every bucket will be a key for us this week. We hope to have Corey Webster and BJ Anthony back with us with Corey recovering from illness that kept him out of the game against the Hawks and BJ making good progress with his ankle injury. I hope to see you all there too, let's get another packed house tonight and this time we will try and play our part.
