Head to head

Put away your swimming costumes, no need to worry about burning or freckling as autumn is well and truly here, if the rain hadn’t already tipped you off.

Raising the bar

  It is hard not to be impressed by Aoife O’Sullivan, an Irish powerlifting record holder for her weight – having deadlifted 160kg, almost two-and-a-half times her body mass – who claims she only took up powerlifting by chance, and still insists that her academic life comes first.
