Chris Morgan at the 2006 Gay Games

The Gay Games in Cologne are three months away, but already there’s a frontrunner in at least one category. Earlier this week, out powerlifter Chris Morgan successfully defended his gold medal in powerlifting at Moscow’s World Drig-Free Powerlifting Championship Open. Morgan competed in the 82.5 kg class with lifts of 210 kg, 240 kg and 250 kg (about 550 lbs on the last one, all on a frame of about 180 lbs.). The British athlete first competed in powerlifting at the 1998 Gay Games, and medaled there and again in 2002 and 2006. He’s also a good will ambassador for the Gay Games.
