Mayor Steve Black recognized the two at city council this week with special certificates. Black not only honoured the athletes, but also their coach, Bob Boisvert. He thanked Boisvert for preparing the athletes, and for his dedication.

The two competed in three power lifting competitions; bench press, squat, and deadlift.
