Many of us at College have for a long time been impressed by Dr Catherine Walter, who has not only increased our understanding and awareness of equality and diversity issues, but is also a keen powerlifter. She is now in her early seventies, but that has not kept her from being crowned champion in the Masters 7 under-58.5kg category for squats, deadlifts and bench press. The Linacre Ladies that Lift, the powerlifting group she is associated with, recently launched a fundraising campaign, and that was the start of her story spreading across the nation. The most recent one is an interview with Catherine on the BBC

Dr Catherine Walter is an Emeritus Fellow at Linacre.
