Sonny Barrah is the ‘one to watch out for’ in the powerlifting world. At 19 he’s only been lifting weights for 3 years and is already setting British Powerlifting Records; he’s qualified for both the European and World Championships taking place later this year and is aiming for World Record success by the time he’s 20!
Inspired by his father, a Commonwealth Games Gold Medal winner in Karate, Sonny (real name Bvinder Barrah) is friendly and relaxed, but also very competitive and determined to achieve his goals.
