Bobby Hill is one of the two Special Olympics powerlifters who train at Southside Strength and Fitness, along with friend and competitor Richard Renwick.During the match last Sunday, Hill deadlifted 308 lbs.

Since Hill started training with Lloyd in 2010, Hill has squatted over 340 lbs. and deadlifted approximately 325 lbs. His bench press last Saturday at 198 lbs. was a personal record. The state games will be held June 5-7 at East High School in Anchorage.To submit your video to Alaska Dispatch News contact Tara Young at tara(at)
