Zoe Newson is not new to the powerlifting scene but will have something new watching on as she competes in Birmingham this summer: her son Duncan. 

With no spectators at the last Paralympics in Tokyo, Newson’s family were forced to watch from home as she came fourth in the -40kg category. 

Newson has Paralympic bronze medals from 2012 and 2016, alongside bronze from the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and reasserted her credentials with World Championship silver last year.
